Animal Trivia

Animals make up the majority of our living world and come in all shapes and colors. They can live on land, in water, primarily in the sky, or a combination of all three. Our current classifications began with Aristotle's general observations around 360 BCE, and they have since been greatly expanded by Carl Linnaeus and other experts. Today, our six major animal groups are invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. We still manage to find new species all the time!

Many people pursue a life of studying animals through zoology, marine biology, or veterinary careers. There are some characteristics that animals share across the spectrum, like being multicellular and needing to consume either plants, animals, or bacteria to survive. One of the many ways animals are grouped together is by how they consume their food. We call these groups herbivores, omnivores, carnivores, detritivores, and parasites.
