Hi kid,

The total number of estimated species living today is estimated by UNEP to be between 5 to 100 million. UNEP uses 12.5 million as a reasonable postulation.

http://www.unep.org/geo2000/english/0045.htm

Many of these species (vertebrates, plants, insects) would not survive a world covered by salt water for over a year and therefore they must, by your creationist account, have either been brought on the Ark or originated since the flood (approx. 4500 years ago by rough biblical chronology). So, how do you squeeze hundreds of thousands of species onto a relatively small Ark? Even the logistics of bringing these kind of plants and individual species (some are fresh water fish located in isolated ponds in the Amazon).

Even the question is a big joke. But, you cannot see that due to your indoctrinated home schooling.
