Hydra are super amazing little creatures that seem not to die of old age, or even age at all! Wow!

They like to stick to a friendly surface using their ‘foot’ and feed using their tentacles, with their mouths positioned at the free end of their body column. And when food is plentiful, they reproduce asexually by producing little buds - how adorable!
