No one knows the exact amount of species that exist on Earth. In fact, thousands of new animal species are discovered every year. Even if you’re an animal lover, you’ve probably only met a tiny fraction of all the animal species that have been identified. But don’t let that discourage you. Instead, think of it as an opportunity to discover new interesting creatures.
