Water Bears

Tardigrades (water bears or moss piglets) are tiny creatures who can survive being frozen, boiled, dehydrated, and irradiated. They can even survive in the vaccuum of space! There are over 900 species of water bears; see some at Dark Roasted Blend. Link

evidently, if i remember college biology correctly, they are also able to undergo parthenogenesis, also known as reproducing without male input.
