Rapacious bacteria have many promising applications in health and the environment., The Rapacious bacteria were discovered by chance, as scientists stumbled upon them more than half a century ago while searching for another type of killer microbe called a bacteriophage, or a virus that can infect and kill bacteria. Before that, says Dr. Laura, “it was not known that bacteria preyed on other bacteria in this way.” These Rapacious bacteria that have eluded detection for so long are somewhat surprising. The seas and mounds of dirt teem with dozens of species, and they are thought to be strong enough to hold up the guts of animals, including ours, and seem to be found everywhere from raw sewage to the gills of crabs. But phages and predatory bacteria are completely different monsters. Phages tend to target a narrow range of hosts, while many predatory bacteria are less content.
