The role of protozoa in metabolism and ruminant digestion is certainly huge although still not enough explored despite, present research and published studies. Microbial ecosystem of digestive system with respect rumen itself is complex community of different microbiologic groups which lives in symbiosis with host, works synergistically in cellulose rich food bioconversion into fat acids, which are used as main energy resource for host. Synergism and antagonism between different groups of microorganism or even different genus from same groups is so enormous and complex that it is very hard to determine the role of certain groups in rumen. Such microbiologic ecosystem contributes to stability in fermentation and degradation of food particles and undoubtedly conduce general well being of host. Generally, the microorganisms in rumen are better studied in household than wild animals.
