Contact with microorganisms in the environment is one of the most common interspecies interactions, in which all animals participate. The microbiome of an animal corresponds to all the microorganisms that colonize this organism, and this microbiome plays an essential role for the animal's physiology, its development and its behavior. Very often, this microbiome is transient, and is derived from the environment.
