    It seems, they live approximately 1 year....I thought they were more long-lived organisms

    Maybe you thought they lived longer because they are so hard to kill?

    Partly could be for this reason... But long ago, I was reading about Microbial Ecology, concretely, about the Extremophiles and looking over this book again I found that some species of Tardigrades in dry enviroments can slow down their metabolism , to do this, they dehydraty themselves, fixing besides the damage in their DNA.... reason which leads to live more years . It seems like under laboratory conditions they live between 5 and 8 years .
