Bacteriophage - Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. Humans are not the only ones that can get infected. These viruses get into a bacteria, replicate themselves, and then cause the bacteria to burst! I wierd because I think this is beautiful and I want to hang a picture of it in my house?

This is what bacteria looks like under the microscope. They are one celled organisms and most of them are harmless but some of them are harmful. They exist everywhere including our bodies.
