Animals encompass a wide variety of diverse living creatures, such as birds (Avians), Insects, Mammals, Reptiles and Amphibians.


Birds, also known as Avians, are a group of endothermic vertebrates.Great vision, recognizes all colors. Thin skulls, no teeth, kinetic jaw (can open their beaks 180 degrees for feeding! Bird's feathers give pressure against the wind and shaped to create an airfoil for ease of flight. Man copied their anatomy to enable planes to fly! Birds have 4-chambered hearts and the average 250 beats/minute. Birds have to incubate their eggs and the average gestation period is 14-21 days.


Insects are a group of very diverse and adaptable creatures. Bee’s, beetles, ants, flys are all examples of what They are the biggest group of animals on Earth, with over 926,000 known different species of insects. Rather than bone, their exoskeleton is made up of proteins that form strong flexible bundles. Insects effect our everyday lives, as consumers, scavengers, and decomposers.


Mammals are a very unique group of endothermic vertebrate animals. They live in all sorts of environments, from land to sea. Mammals are creatures that have some type of fur or hair covering their bodies. In general, all mammals share the same body structure. Although this isn’t obvious at first, there are indications, such as the skeleton or genes, that show that animals in this category belong here. Unlike other animals, most mammals give birth to their young. A mammal that is an exception to this rule is the platypus.

Reptiles & Amphibians

Amphibians were the first tetrapods to make land their home. They used lungs to breathe air, although they primarily absorbed gases through their skin. They need water to breed since their eggs are fertilized externally and do not have a reliably supply of water inside of them. Amphibians also has the first true vocalizations. Most of their adult terrestrial forms are foul tasting or have a poisonous mucus. Reptiles have scales made out of tough keratin and are ectothermic, meaning the environment determines their body temperatures. They were the first to gain a three chambered heart and have much better developed lungs than those of amphibians. Both reptiles and birds are the only groups of animals to have nucleated red blood cells. Reptiles can reproduce without a reliable water source because their eggs have a hardened shell with an amniotic cavity that holds fluid for the embryo and a chorion which contains gases for the embryo.
