There are billions of animals on this planet. Many billions more than humans. Animals are very important to us. They are necessary for our existence. The informed person should know about them. They live in many environments.
Animals of the Forest
Forests occupy one third of the Earth's land area. Mankind is destroying our forests at a rapid rate and with it thousands of species of plants and animals. Assuming it lives at least 50 years, a tree exhales 6,000 pounds of oxygen in its life, or about 120 pounds per year.

On average, five acres of grassland contain about one ton of insects.
1 acre of hay meadow may contain 2.25 million spiders. Each of these spiders will eat 2 insects a week for 6 months, which works out at about 108 million insects! Meadow Animals

Urban Wild Animals (Little wild animals not the savage criminals or the people who crap in elevators) There are many species of these animals. Mice, rats, birds, insects, animals in our lawns, cats, dogs, racoons, and squirrels who having no forest to gather food have to pick garbage cans to live.
And those above are just a few of the animals found in urban areas. In addition there are billions and billions of insects, spiders, worms, bacteria and other small animals that live in or near the ground. This is what you see birds pecking at every day.
