What is the most unusual place where microbes live?

    There are a few good candidates for this, as certain bacteria survive conditions that are deadly for all other life, such as extreme heat and cold, high concentrations of various chemicals, radiation, high or low pH, and so on. In my opinion, some of the thermophiles are the most unusual ones (those are the organisms that live and hot springs and deep sea thermal vents). They survive at high temperatures like 45-80C (about 115-175F). The ones in deep sea vents also have to withstand extreme pressure. Among those are hyperthermophiles (which include two bacteria) are the ones that grow at temperatures of over 90C (almost 200F).
