Thermoacidophiles are extremophilic microorganisms that are both thermophilic and acidophilic. Thermophiles can grow under high-temperature conditions, while acidophiles can grow under low pH conditions. The vast majority of thermoacidophiles are archaea or bacteria. Thermoacidophiles can be found in hot springs, deep-sea openings, or in other environments of geothermal activity.
