Very large soil animals, such as moles, rabbits, woodchucks, snakes, prairie dogs, and badgers, burrow in the soil and spend at least some of their lives below ground. Moles are secondary consumers, their diet consisting mainly of earthworms.

Soil microbiology is the study of microorganisms in soil, their functions, and how they affect soil is believed that between two and four billion years ago, the first ancient bacteria and microorganisms came about on Earth's oceans.

These bacteria could fix nitrogen, in time multiplied, and as a result released oxygen into the atmosphere. The animals inhabiting this strata, such as rhinoceroses, chimpanzees, gorillas, elephants, deer, leopards, and bears, are adapted to walking and climbing short distances.

Below the soil surface, burrowing animals, such as armadillos and caecilians, are found, as are microorganisms that help decompose and free much of the organic litter. Soil organism, any organism inhabiting the soil during part or all of its life.

Soil organisms, which range in size from microscopic cells that digest decaying organic material to small mammals that live primarily on other soil organisms, play an important role in maintaining fertility, structure, drainage, and aeration of soil.
