10 Smallest Living Creatures on Earth

10 Smallest Living Creatures on Earth

We are surrounded by a lot of living as well as non living creature. Living creatures are the ones that are made up of cells as well as need food, air as well as water to survive as well as are of diverse shapes as well as sizes. They can be unicellular or multi cellular. They are capable of respond to changes as well as have the ability to move from one place to another. No income creature is immortal as well as sometime or the other every alive being have to die. Moreover, living creatures have the ability to reproduce also directly or not directly. Living creatures thus hold next uniqueness such as they can breathe or respire as well as have to feed as well as excrete, have the capability to move, reproduce as well as grow as well as are sensitive to changes around them as well as include the potential to adapt themselves according to those changes. Living creature can be of different sizes range from a few micrometers to thousands of meters. This article gives us the list of the least living creatures as per the size that can be found on earth.

10. SEA URCHIN – ECHINOCYAMUS SCABER (6 mm)

9. STARFISH – PATIRIELLA PARVIVIPARA (5 mm)

8. SEA CUCUMBER – PSAMMOTHURIA GANAPATII (4 mm)

7. BEETLES – SCYDOSELLA MUSAWASENSISIS (300 μm)

6. ERIOPHYIDAE (125 to 250 μm)

5. CRUSTACEAN – STYGOTANTULUS STOCKI (94 μm)

4. EUKARYOTES (0.8 μm)

3. NANOARCHAEUM (400 nm)

2. MYCOPLASMA GENITALIUM (200 – 300 nm)

1. NANOBES (20 nm)

 

 

Nanobes is one tenth of the size of microbes as well as are considered as the negligible of the tiniest form of life that exist on earth. Earlier it was notorious whether nanobes are living or nonliving organisms since scientists earlier have only found mineral-crystalline arrangement in nanobes rather than any sort of life. But due to recent advancement in technology, it has been claimed that nanobes are living organisms as they contains DNA as well as have the capability to reproduce. They are only 20 nanometre in size which is really small to contain any bio chemicals which helps to sustain life as well as reproduce, so for nanobes to reproduce as well as grow, an unconventional way has to be there which nanobes possess. It is still in quarrel whether nanobes are person living creature or parts of better income organisms.
