what is an animal
What is an animal?
  • Animals are living organisms. This means they breathe, they eat, they grow and they reproduce (make more like themselves). Plants are living organisms, too.
  • So, what is the difference between a plant and an animal?
    • Plants do not move, whereas most animals do.
    • The true difference, though, is that plants produce their own food, whereas animals feed off other things.

Classification?

  • Animals are separated into groups or categories so that they are more easily studied and discussed by scientists and others.
