Bacteriophages are viruses which require a bacteria to survive, they basically become "living" once they invade a host bacterium.
Examples of bacteriophages are:

1) Temperate phages (mu and lambda)
2) Filamentous and spherical phages , both having ssDNA (single stranded DNA)
3) And the series of T"even" phages T2, T4 and T6.
