You can find bacteria everywhere. In fact, there are more bacteria on Earth than stars in the universe. It takes 20 minutes for a bacterium to split into two (if the conditions are favorable). This means, in about eight hours, one bacterium can multiply into 16,777,216 bacteria.
Bacteria can be found on rocks, in oceans, soil, and even arctic snow. Many of them live on various other organisms, including on us.
