I did not see the angular resolution size of this solar tardigrade :) and distance from the Sun when the image taken. That could show a very large solar tardigrade :)

FYI. The Sun at 1 AU from Earth and 1" angular size for the solar tardigrade in the image, could show the beast is some 450 miles or more in linear diameter or length, a bit larger than 725 km :) Okay, I am just having some fun here :)

Shown here is one of the descendants of the Lunar Tardigrades visiting London. They are friendly and outgoing. They call themselves the Sontaran.
