Insect Insects are a class within the arthropods that have a chitinous exoskeleton, a three-part body (head, thorax, and abdomen), three pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes, and two antennae Mosquito Weevil Assassin bug amphibian mammal reptile Mollusca arachnia is any beetle from the Curculionoidea
superfamily. They are usually small,
less than 6 millimetres (0.24 in), and herbivorous is a common insect in the family Culicidae (from the Latin culex meaning midge or gnat[3]). Mosquitoes resemble crane flies (family Tipulidae) and chironomid flies (family Chironomidae), with which they are sometimes confused by the casual observer. are appropriately named because
of their habit of lying in ambush
for their insect prey are a class (Arachnida) of joint-legged invertebrate animals in the subphylum Chelicerata. All arachnids have eight legs, although in some species the front pair may convert to a sensory function. The term is derived from the Greek word ράχνη (aráchnē), meaning "spider".[2] Acarina are a taxon of arachnids that contains mites and ticks. The diversity of the Acari is extraordinary and its fossil history goes back to at least the early Devonian period Amblypygi is an order of invertebrate animals belonging
to the class Arachnida, in the subphylum
Chelicerata of the phylum Arthropoda. Harvestmen are arachnids belonging to the order Opiliones (formerly Phalangida). As of 2006[update], over 6,400 species of harvestmen have been discovered worldwide, although the real number of extant species may exceed 10,000. Thelyphonida
is an arachnid order comprising
invertebrates commonly known as vinegarroons. are animals in the (Linnaean) class Reptilia characterized by breathing air, a "cold-blooded" (poikilothermic) metabolism, laying tough-shelled amniotic eggs (or retaining the same membrane system in species with live birth), and skin with scales or scutes Crocodilia is an order of large reptiles that appeared about 84 million years ago in the late Cretaceous Period (Campanian stage). They are the closest living relatives of birds, as the two groups are the only known survivors of the Archosauria. Sphenodontia is an order of lizard-like reptiles that includes only one living genus, the tuatara (Sphenodon). Despite its current lack of diversity, the Sphenodontia at one time included a wide array of genera in several families, and represents a lineage stretching back to the Mesozoic Era. Squamata or the scaled reptiles, is the largest recent order of reptiles, including lizards and snakes. Members of the order are distinguished by their skins, which bear horny scales or shields. Turtles are reptiles of the order Testudines (the crown group of the superorder Chelonia), characterised by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs that acts as a shield. are a class of vertebrate, air-breathing animals whose females are characterized by the possession of mammary glands while both males and females are characterized by sweat glands, hair and/or fur, three middle ear bones used in hearing, and a neocortex region in the brain. giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate mammal,
the tallest of all land-living animal species,
and the largest ruminant. It is covered in large,
irregular patches of yellow to black fur separated
by white, off-white, or dark yellowish brown background. Giant Golden-crowned Flying-fox also known as the Golden-capped fruit bat, is a rare fruit bat and considered the largest known bat in the world. Lion is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera, and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight,[4] it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae and the order Erinaceomorpha. There are 17 species of hedgehog in five genera, found through parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, and New Zealand. such as frogs, toads, salamanders, newts, and caecilians, are ectothermic (or cold-blooded) animals that metamorphose from a juvenile water-breathing form, either to an adult air-breathing form, or to a paedomorph that retains some juvenile characteristics. Spea hammondii is a relatively smooth-skinned species of toad. Its eyes are pale gold with vertical pupils. It has a green or grey dorsum often with skin tubercles tipped in orange, and it is a whitish color on the ventrum. It has a wedge-shaped black spade on each hind foot. Australian Green Tree Frog is a species of tree frog native to Australia and New Guinea, with introduced populations in New Zealand and the United States. The species belongs to the genus Litoria. Poison dart frog is the common name of a group of frogs in the family Dendrobatidae which are native to Central and South America. Leopard frog are the archetypal "grass frogs" of North America, a collection of about 14 species within the true frog genus Rana. They are generally very similar, green with prominent black spotting (though actually more like that of a cheetah than that of a leopard). is a large phylum of invertebrate animals. There are around 85,000 recognized extant species of molluscs. It is the largest marine phylum, comprising about 23% of all the named marine organisms. Numerous molluscs also live in freshwater and terrestrial habitats. Molluscs are highly diverse, not only in size and in anatomical structure, but also in behaviour and in habitat. Chiton are small to large, primitive marine molluscs in the class Polyplacophora. There are 900 to 1,000 extant species of chitons in the class, which was formerly known as Amphineura Acanthopleura granulata This species is common within its range in the tropical Western Atlantic, but it is often not noticed, because its color and texture are similar to the rocks on which it lives. Cryptoconchus porosus common name the butterfly chiton, is a species of large chiton or "coat of mail shell", a marine polyplacophoran mollusk in the family Acanthochitonidae. Gumboot chiton Cryptochiton stelleri, also known as the giant pacific chiton, is the largest of the chitons, growing to 33 cm (13 in). It is found along the shores of the northern Pacific Ocean from Central California to Alaska, across the Aleutian Islands to the Kamchatka Peninsula and south to Japan.
