Google celebrates Earth Day with animated doodle of amazing creatures of the planet
Internet search engine giant Google has wished the visitors to its home page "Happy Earth Day 2019!" with an animated doodle of Wandering Albatross - the widest wingspan of any living bird.

"This year's annual Earth Day Doodle takes us around the planet we call home to discover some of the awe-inspiring organisms which inhabit it. Specifically, the interactive slideshow Doodle explores six organisms across elevation - along with their earthly superlative!" writes Google Doodle blog urging the visitors to click the doodle to get a sneak peek of the featured creatures. 

The featured creatures in the doodle are Paedophryne Amauensis that holds the world record for smallest frog, and smallest vertebrate; Amazon Water Lily which is regarded as one of the world's largest aquatic plants; Coelacanth which is 407-million-years old and one of world's oldest living species; and Deep Cave Springtail which happens to be one the deepest-dwelling terrestrial creatures. 

The doodle has been created by doodler Kevin Laughlin who describes the observance as: "It's very easy for us humans to think of ourselves as something apart or separate from nature. If you pick just one day a year to remember that we're all of this earth as much as a worm, mountain, or tree, Earth Day can be that day."
