It is fascinating to know about unknown weird creatures which live along with us. Most of us feel amazed when we heard about Micro Organisms that we are not able to see with our naked eye which shares space with us in this visible world. We all aware that the space of earth shared by different varieties of weird creatures.Probably we know about very few kinds of animal species. For example, there are 10 quintillions insects. It is difficult to believe the number of insect species present around us. It would be approximately 950,000.
