SALT LAKE CITY — Google released its latest Google Doodle on Monday morning, and it had a heavy focus on Earth Day celebrations.
Google Doodle put a focus on organisms that inhabit the planet. Specifically, the doodle focuses on six featured organisms, including:
- The wandering albatross, which has the widest wingspan of living birds.
- The coastal redwood, which is the tallest tree in the world.
- The paedophryne amauensis, which is the world’s smallest frog.
- The Amazon water lily, which is one of the world’s largest aquatic plants.
- The coelacanth, which is one of the oldest species on the planet.
- The deep cave springtail, a hexapod that lives deep in the Earth.
"The last thing I wanted to do was feature animals based on their cuteness or how they might appeal in some way to my mammalian sensibilities," the Google Doodle’s lead artist Kevin Laughlin said in an interview, according to Space.com. "All life is incredible and worth celebrating."
