What is the Smallest Living Thing in the World?

The smallest living thing in the world is a single celled organism called a Nanobe. Nanobes are one tenth the size of the smallest of all bacterias. They are made out of filaments and are found in rock and sediment and were first discovered in 1996 by the scientist Philippa Uwins of University of Queensland. Viruses can also be considered to be the smallest living organism however there is much debate as to whether or not they are actually living.
