Kingdom Animalia


~ Characteristics ~


Eukaryotic with no cell walls

Heterotrophs (consumers)


Characteristics cont animal movement

Characteristics Cont.Animal Movement

  • Most animals are capable of complex and relatively rapid movement compared to plants and other organisms.

Animal reproduction

Animal Reproduction

  • Most animals reproduce sexually, by differentiated haploid cells (eggs & sperm).

  • Most animals are diploid, meaning that the cells of adults contain two copies of the genetic material.

In addition to characteristics of life

In addition toCharacteristics of Life

1. Living things are organized.

2. Living things are made up of cells.

3. Living things metabolize.

4. Living things maintain an internal environment.

5. Living things grow.

6. Living things respond.

7. Living things reproduce.

8. Living things evolve.

Animal sizes

a mesozoan


Animal Sizes

  • Animals range in size from no more than a few cells (like the mesozoans) to organisms weighing many tons (like the blue whale).

Animal habitats

Animal Habitats

  • Most animals inhabit the seas, with fewer in fresh water and even fewer on land.

Animal cells

Animal Cells

  • Animal cells, are eukaryotic

  • Animal cells lack the rigid cell walls that characterize plant cells.

Animal bodies

Animal Bodies

  • The bodies of most animals (all except sponges) are made up of cells organized into tissues.

  • Each tissue is specialized to perform specific functions.

    Cells->tissues->organs->organ sys >organism

Animal symmetry

Animal Symmetry

  • Describes how animal body structures are arranged

  • Allows animals to move in different ways

  • Cnidarians and echinoderms are radially symmetrical.

  • Most animals are bilaterally symmetrical.



  • The most primitive

    animals are


    No symmetry

Radial symmetry

Radial Symmetry

  • forms that can be divided into similar halves by more than two planes passing through it.

  • Animals with radial symmetry are usually sessile, free-floating, or weakly swimming.

Radial Symmetry

Bilateral symmetry

Bilateral Symmetry

  • Animals with bilateral symmetry are most well-suited for directional movement.

Bilateral Symmetry

Protection and support

~ Protection and Support ~

  • not all animals have a skeleton, divided into 2 groups:

    • exoskeleton – a hard, waxy coating on the outside of the body

    • endoskeleton – support framework within the body



  • No backbones

  • 95% of all animals are in this group

Invertebrate phylum porifera

~Invertebrate Phylum Porifera~

  • Sponges

  • simplest form of animal life

  • live in water

  • Do not move around

  • no symmetry

  • 5000 species

Invertebrate phylum porifera1

~Invertebrate Phylum Porifera~

  • Examples: Tube Sponge, Glass Sponge, Sea Sponge

Invertebrate phylum cnidaria

~Invertebrate Phylum Cnidaria~

  • Live in water

  • Most have tentacles

  • catch food with stinging cells

  • gut for digesting

Invertebrate phylum cnidaria1

~Invertebrate Phylum Cnidaria~

  • 2 different shapes

  • Medusa - like a jellyfish

  • Polyp - like a hydra

Invertebrate phylum cnidaria2

~Invertebrate Phylum Cnidaria~

  • Examples - Jellyfish, Hydra, sea anemones, and corals

Invertebrate phylum platyhelminthes

~Invertebrate Phylum Platyhelminthes ~

  • Flatworms

  • Flat, ribbon-like body

  • Live in water or are parasites

  • bilateral symmetry

Invertebrate phylum platyhelminthes1

~Invertebrate Phylum Platyhelminthes ~

  • Examples: Planaria

  • eyespots detect light

  • food and waste

    go in and out the same opening

Invertebrate phylum platyhelminthes2

~Invertebrate Phylum Platyhelminthes ~

  • Examples: Tapeworm

  • Parasite that lives in intestines of host absorbing food

Invertebrate phylum mollusca

~Invertebrate Phylum Mollusca ~

  • Soft bodies

  • Hard Shells

  • Live on land or in water

  • have a circulatory system and a complex nervous system.

  • Important food source for humans

Invertebrate phylum mollusca1

~Invertebrate Phylum Mollusca ~

Class Gastropoda

  • snails and slugs

  • may have 1 shell

  • stomach-footed - move on stomach

Invertebrate phylum mollusca2

~Invertebrate Phylum Mollusca ~

Class Bivalves

  • 2 shells hinged together

  • clams, oysters,

    scallops and mussels

Class Cephalopods

  • squids and octopuses

  • internal mantel

Invertebrate phylum annelida

~InvertebratePhylum Annelida ~

  • Segmented worms

  • Body divided into segments (sections)

  • Live in water or underground

  • have a nervous and circulatory system

Invertebrate phylum annelida1

~InvertebratePhylum Annelida ~

  • Class Earthworms

  • eat soil and breakdown organic matter, wastes provide nutrients to soil

Invertebrate phylum annelida2

~InvertebratePhylum Annelida ~

  • Class leeches

  • parasites that feed on blood of other animals

Invertebrate phylum arthropoda

~Invertebrate Phylum Arthropoda ~

  • Body divided into sections/segments

  • Exoskeleton

  • Jointed legs

  • well developed nervous system

  • largest group of organisms on earth

Invertebrate phylum arthropoda1

~Invertebrate Phylum Arthropoda ~

  • 3 subphylums:

  • Classified into classes according to the number of legs, eyes and antennae they have.

Invertebrate phylum arthropods subphylum uniramia

~Invertebrate Phylum Arthropods ~ Subphylum Uniramia

  • Class Insecta

    • no antennae

    • 3 pairs of legs

    • 2 body regions - head, thorax & abdomen

    • grasshoppers, ants, butterflies, bees
