Arthropods

Arthropods belong to the phylum (major group) of animals called the Arthropoda. The name "arthropod" comes from Greek words meaning "jointed foot", but the legs are jointed as well as the feet. They also have bodies made up of jointed sections, with a hard outer covering called an exoskeleton. There is no internal skeleton. Arthropods make up about three-quarters of the world's animals. They include insects, crustaceans, spiders, and centipedes and millipedes.
