Now my teacher gave me a very difficult homework! The homework says : name the bacteria inside yogurt.
Course as you know we need a micro-scope right?
Who needs a microscope when you have You-Tube:
Please notice this top comment at this site:
Lol the bacteria in yogurt are called Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptoccus thermophilus, these are needed for the fermentation of milk. They are completely harmless and are actually beneficial. :)
More can be found at http://www.google.com and search for "Yogurt Bacteria"
No need for a microscope in this case! Your teacher may want some species names, so try looking up information on the genus Lactobacillus.
