What sort of living things are we?

We are not plants or animals

Fungal Kingdom

We are not plants because we can't make our own food using sunlight.  We are not animals either because we don't have mouths or stomachs - so we can't eat like humans do.  We have to break down our food first and then absorb what we need for growth and development.

We have our very own group called the Fungal Kingdom

The Fungal Kingdom is one of the largest kingdoms of living organisms on our planet because scientists think that there are at least 1,500,000 (1.5 million) of us to be found.
