For example, this shape can be divided along a midline: AQUATIC INVERTEBRATES Aquatic animals live in the water Many animals that live in water are invertebrates Sponges: the simplest invertebrates. Made up of two cell layers. Shaped like a sack with an opening.

Do not have symmetry Cnidarians: have tentacles, which are arm-like limbs with stinging cells on the end. Some stay in one place while others swim. SPONGES CORAL AND SPONGES

MOLLUSKS AND ECHINODERMS Mollusks: All have shells Most have shells outside the body and stay in one place Some have shells inside the body and move Echinoderms: Have spiny skin

Examples are lobsters, bees, insects, spiders INSECTS AND CENTIPEDES Insects One pair of antennae Three pairs of legs One or two pairs of wings Three body sections

Centipedes and millipedes Long slender bodies and many legs Centipede: one pair of legs on each section Millipede: two pairs of legs on each section ARACHNIDS AND CRUSTACEANS Arachnids: Four to five pairs of legs

Two body sections Fangs Examples: spiders, ticks scorpions Crustaceans: Two pairs of antennae Two or three body sections Ability to chew Most live in the oceans


Three types: Flatworms Flat Three cell layers thick

Some live inside other animals One opening for food and wastes
