3: MAMMALS all posses these characteristics: Warmblooded They have some form of hair, which really varies between species. They have mammary glands (only fully develops in females) (source:http://animals.about.com/od/mammals/tp/mammal_characteristics.htm
4: These are some common mammals. They all posses the characteristics needed. Along with mammary glads, some form of hair, and warm blooded, all mammals have a diaphragm, and inner ear bones
6: These are platypuses. They are the most unique of mammals now, because they lay eggs, which is pretty weird for mammals. Commonly, mammals do not lay eggs.
7: Enchidnas are also mammals. They also are freaks of nature in the sense that they do lay eggs as well. Animals like these (platypuses and enchidas aka, mammals that lay eggs) used to be quite prominent, but these are the last of their type (animals that lay eggs)
8: bird characteristics: birds are warm blooded Their skin is covered in feathers they have four chambered hearts their forelimbs are modified as wings They lay eggs (http://www.ecnca.org/Animals/Birds/Bird_Characteristics.htm)
9: While all birds have wings, some birds, like the ostrich (top left)cannot actually fly.
10: Fish characteristics: Fish generally are covered in scales all over. Fish live under water. They lay soft shelled eggs. Their limbs are modified into fins.
11: saltwater fish | saltwater fish | Saltwater fish
12: Freshwater fish
13: Reptiles: Their skin is covered in scales. They are cold blooded. They lay eggs hard shelled eggs, and were the first animals to lay eggs on land. Reptiles DO NOT pass an pass through an embryonic phase with gills, the way amphibians do.
16: Amphibian Characteristics: Amphibians are cold blooded. Some breathe through their skin while others breathe through their lungs. They have three chambered hearts Their toes lack claws.
19: The fives kingdoms: The five kingdoms of classification include animals (animalia), plants (plantae), fungi, protists (protista) and archaea.
20: The fungi kingdom: Members of the fungi kingdom include mushrooms, mold, Penicillium, and yeast. They grow in spores, not seeds.
23: The Plant Kingdom Plants are eukaryotic. Plants are photosynthetic. Plants are multicellular Plants reproduce asexually.
26: Monerans Monorans are single celled. They have no chloroplasts or any other type of organelle. They have no nucleus.
28: Protists are single-celled. There is usually no cell wall, although some forms may have a cell wall. They have organelles including a nucleus and may have chloroplasts. They are small, but large enough that a protist can be seen with a microscope. Nutrients are acquired by photosynthesis, ingestion of other organisms, or both.
31: Animals: The members of the animal kingdom are multicellular, Animals move with the aid of cilia, flagella, or muscular organs based on contractile proteins. They have organelles including a nucleus, but no chloroplasts or cell walls. Animals acquire nutrients by ingestion.
35: The three domain system is divided by three groups, bacteria, archea, and eukaryotes.
36: Bacteria is composed of organisms that are much more common than Archaea and live almost anywhere. Many are decomposers, some are photosynthesizers, and a few cause disease.
40: archea domain: Archea lack organelles. Archaea have an independent evolutionary history and show many differences in their biochemistry from other forms of life. Generally, archaea and bacteria are quite similar in size and shape, although a few archaea have very unusual shapes.
43: Eukaryotes are multicelled. They generally are more complex. Animals, plants and fungi are all eukaryotes.
