Hey guys, do you know what vertebrate and invertebrate animals are?
If you don’t know, let’s find out together
we find examples of vertebrate and invertebrate animals in different ways of motion.
Animal and Human Motion Organs
Besides breathing, one of the characteristics of other living things is moving.
Moving is changing the position of either part or the whole body.
Every day, we do a lot of movements, from walking, running, climbing, swimming, and more.
Do you know? The human and animal movements have something in common.
Human and animal motions are divided into two, namely passive motion and active motions.
Which includes passive motion is bone. Bones are called passive motors because they cannot move on their own.
Meanwhile, the active active motions are muscles. Muscles are called active motions because they move bones.
Examples of Vertebrate and Invertebrate Animals with Different Ways of Motion
Vertebrate animals are animals that have a backbone. While invertebrate animals are animals that do not have a backbone.
Examples of vertebrate animals are bears, cats, cows, horses, tigers, kangaroos, rhinos, ducks, eagles, owls, penguins, sharks, stingrays, frogs, crocodiles, iguanas, and snakes.
Examples of invertebrate animals are worms, leeches, bees, spiders, dragonflies, jellyfish, coral reefs, sea cucumbers, starfish, shellfish, squid, snails and octopus.
Although the animals above are from the same group, that is, both vertebrates and some invertebrates, they move in different ways.
5 examples of vertebrate animals with different ways of motions:
- the cat walks on its feet
- the owl flies using its wings
- sharks swim using fins
- the frog jumps using his feet
- the crocodile moves by gluing its stomach to the ground (slithering)
5 examples of invertebrate animals with different ways of motions:
- the spider moves using its legs
- The dragonfly moves using its wings
- the snail moves using its stomach muscles
- the octopus moves using its tentacles
- the starfish moves using an ampulla at the foot of the tube
