The animal kingdom is the largest kingdom with over 1 million known species. All animals consist of many complex cells. They are also heterotrophs, they do not produce their own food. Archaebacteria are unicellular (one cell) organisms found in extreme environments such as hot boiling water and thermal vents under conditions with no oxygen or highly acid environments. Like archaebacteria, eubacteria are complex and single celled. Most bacteria are in the kingdom eubacteria. They are the kinds found everywhere and are the ones people are most familiar with.
