It is debatable whether viruses are truly living organisms. They have genes and proteins like living organisms, they can replicate like living organisms, and they can even evolve like living organisms. But viruses typically can only replicate by taking over the cellular machinery of an animal, a plant, a bacteria, or some other organism. Despite this debate, however, viruses still represent some of the most striking examples of evolution in action.
