Natural numbers, according to the strictness of the definition, can refer to all positive numbers, that is, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.... or all non-negative numbers, that is, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... (note the inclusion of the number 0 in this list).

Whole numbers can include negative whole numbers, for example, -1, -2, -3, -4, -5, numbers you do not find in the list of natural numbers.
