MEET THE ANIMALS

 

Amphibians

Birds

Fish

Amphibians are animals that live both in the water and on land. Like reptiles, amphibians are cold-blooded, but they have smooth, moist skin instead of scales.
  Birds are feathered, winged vertebrates. Birds are warm-blooded like mammals. Their hollow bones give most birds the ability to fly, although some birds, such as the penguin, are flightless.
  Fish are cold-blooded aquatic animals. They are covered in gills and lack any arms, legs, or digits. There are nearly 32,000 different species of fish, making the group far more diverse than any other animal.

Invertebrates

Mammals

Reptiles

The species that lacks a vertebral column or “spine,” invertebrates comprise over 95% of all known animal species. Invertebrates include spiders, bees, worms, jellyfish, lobster, and snails.
  Mammals are warm-blooded vertebrate animals that typically have hair on their bodies and produce milk to feed their young. There are over 4000 species of mammals, of which humans are one.
  Reptiles are cold-blooded, live both in the water and on land, but differ from amphibians in that they are covered in small, rigid plates or “scales.”
