  • 44003_88_88 Protozoa > Acanthamoebidae

    Acanthamoeba culbertsoni

    I chose these because they have many roles to play with human sickness. Also because they're found in many things we use every day. They can cause BIG problems in our nervous system and immune system.

    Proteobacteria

    Purple Photosynthetic Bacteria and Relatives

    I chose these because they look pretty cool. I'm not going to lie. Also, it has "medical, industrial, and agricultural significance" too.

    Basidiomycota

    Basidiomycetes

    This is the absolute weirdest fungi I've ever seen. It is strange and interesting. Also, the fact it has a long life span. Most mushrooms grow on their food, then when they're done they die and go away. Are they still alive after they, um, disappear? How do they grow on the dead things?

  • 22893_88_88 Animalia > Canidae

    Canis lupus

    Grey Wolf

    I love wolves, that is a part of why I picked this one. They are interesting creatures, and some species of wolves are endangered. I want them to trhive, they deserve to. They help balance the ecosystem as a predator and a caregiver.
