Do you remember what an invertebrate is? Can you think of any examples of invertebrates? What are the features of invertebrates? These are the questions you will be answering in this lesson.
What are some examples of invertebrates?
Invertebrates include sponges, jellyfish, corals, sea anemones, tapeworms, liver flukes, snails, scallops, barnacles, oysters, octopuses, earthworms, leeches, crabs, spiders, ticks, scorpions, centipedes, lobsters, prawns, flies, lice, cicadas, beetles, weevils, moths, starfish and sea urchins. And lots of other creatures!
Invertebrates are a very mixed bag! Because there are so many different types of invertebrates, it is useful to classify them into smaller groups. In this lesson, you will be looking at only seven invertebrate groups.
