Invertebrates Animals

Invertebrates Animals:-

Animals do not have backbones. Do not have an internal skeleton made of bone. Many invertebrates have fluid filled, hydrostatic skeleton like jellyfish or worms, and others have outer shells, like insects and crustaceans.

Annelids:- Bodies divided into segments have very well-developed internal organs, found anywhere in the world, don't have limbs, eg. earthworms, leeches, roundworms.

Mollusks:- Have soft skin like organs covered with a hard outside shell, live some on land, like a snail, slug, some are living in the water like oyster, mussel, clam squid and octopus.

Echino terms:- Marine animals have arms or spines that radiate from the center of their body, like a sea star, sea urchins, sand dollar, and sea cucumber.

Protozoa:- Simple single-celled animals, smallest of all animals, microscopic, they breathe, move and reproduce like multi-celled animals, like amoebas, flagellates.

Arthropods:- Have limbs with joints that allow them to move, also have an exoskeleton, which is a hard, external skeleton, like crustaceans and insects, arachnids.
