Insects etc

The  single largest  group of  animals  which  is most  diverse  and  one  that  represents  almost  half  the  number  of  living  organisms ! They  are characterised by  having  an 'exo'  or  an  outer  skeleton  as  against  the  'endo'  or  the  inner  skeletons ! 

They  show  greatest  variation  in  their  habitat, form, life  cycles, feeding habits, locomotion  ... etc  

( A  whole  lot of  plants  which  have  become  important  to  the  humans, are  pollinated  by  a variety  of  insects ! ... on  the  other  hand, a  lot  of  insects  are  also  deemed as  'pests'  and  some  are  also  identified  as  transfer  agents  for  some  diseases ! )
