On Earth discovered creatures like the hero of the game

it Seems that the legendary PAC-man exist in the real world!

Right now as you read this article, you are surrounded by millions of different bacteria. They live not only on our body but also on the walls, furniture and objects that we use every day. However, you are unlikely to surprise, because recently we wrote about how dangerous bacteria live on . But in addition bacteria the entire planet is also inhabited by the so-called Protista, which it is impossible to name neither animals nor plants. They cannot be referred even to bacteria because protists have their own cell nucleus. Recently, scientists from Spain and decided to carefully study these creatures and found that they behave like pacman out of the game 80-ies.

About the way of life of unusual organisms was described in a scientific journal called . Previously, scientists had tried to carefully study these creatures, however, they did not accurately recognize them in the soil, because they dwell in it by the millions. Now, however, researchers can identify them in the genetic code and carefully examined under the microscope. In the study of their lifestyle revealed that majority of protists behave like the hero of the game "pacman".

do more on Earth?

In the course of the observations scientists have noticed that most of the time unusual creatures moving deep in the soil and absorb small bacteria. At the same time they're trying to Dodge attacks of larger microorganisms. Indeed, this is very similar to the game 80-ies where a yellow character with opening mouth travelled around the maze eating small dots and avoid the ghosts.

Protista similar to PAC-man lifestyle, but not appearance

However, in the world there are other types of protists, which are a slightly different lifestyle. For example, in the soils of tropical forests, researchers have discovered organisms that act as parasites and live inside other living organisms. And in the desert soils were found, which produce vital energy through the sunlight.

I Think in this picture, only the hands, soil and flower? No, it has millions of micro-organisms

It Should be mentioned that not all small creatures and animals. While most of the protists are a peaceful way of life and make up most of the biomass of our planet, others may provoke the development of various diseases. For example, some microscopic organisms cause , also known as "African trypanosomiasis". Usually, it spreads through the bite of the tsetse fly, is accompanied by fever, joint pains and headache and often ends with the death of a person.

Whatever it was, conducted the study, told a lot about many things. Now we at least know not only that they move using tiny flagella, but are a way of life character of the legendary game. In the end, this research work could advance research in the field of Microbiology and in the future, scientists can do even more amazing discoveries.
