THERMOSBAENACEANS AND PEOPLE

Thermosbaenaceans do not impact people or their activities.

SOME LIKE IT HOT!

Thermosbaena mirabilis only lives in two baths fed by hot springs at the oasis of El Hamma in southern Tunisia. They thrive in warm, slightly salty water at temperatures between 98.6 to 116.6°F (37 to 47°C). These heat-loving animals stop moving when the temperature dips down to a relatively "chilly" 95°F (35°C) and die at around 86°F (30°C).
