Posted: October 9, 2018

Biology Week: October 6th – 14th

This celebration was started by the Royal Society of Biology in 2011.

Did You Know...
Extremophiles are organisms that live in extreme environments where most life cannot survive. Most are microbes, including Thermophiles (high heat), Acidophiles (strong acids), Xerophiles (deserts and other dry places), Halophiles (salty areas), and Cryophiles (extreme cold).

There are a few large animals and plants that can live in more extreme environments, including camels (long periods without water), emperor penguins (cold Antarctic), cactus (heat and dryness) and tube worms (boiling water of hydrothermal vents).**
