    • Question: Who are the vertebrates?
      • Answer: Vertebrates are animals with a spinal cord and a backbone.
    • Does this animal have a backbone? Sheep Lobster Snake Lady Bug Butterfly Monkey Turtle
    • Fish are Vertebrates Can you see the backbones?
    • Fun facts about fish!
        • Fish use gills to extract oxygen from the water.
        • Fish lay their eggs in water.
        • Most fish have fins to help them swim.
    • Amphibians are Vertebrates
      • What is an Amphibian?
      • Start their lives in water
      • Live mostly on land when they are grown up
      • Smooth skin
      • Breath through their skin and lungs
      • Cold Blooded
      Let’s see some examples!
    • Salamanders Frogs Toads
    • Amphibians: The Life Cycle of a Frog Egg in the water Turns into a tadpole Tadpole starts to grow legs Tadpole looses its tail and . . . Becomes a frog that lives on land!
    • Reptiles are Vertebrates
      • What is a reptile?
        • Covered in scales
        • Breath with lungs
        • Lay hard or soft-shelled eggs
        • Spend most of their lives in water
        • Cold blooded
      Let’s see some examples!
    • Reptiles Snakes Turtles Alligators and Crocodiles Lizards
    • Amphibians vs. Reptiles
      • What’s the difference? How are they the same?
      Snakes Frogs Turtles vs. Salamanders
    • Birds are Vertebrates
      • Birds are covered with feathers and have wings
      • Not all birds can use their wings to fly
      • Hollow or partially hollow bones make birds lighter so that they can fly
    • Can I fly? Owl Ostrich Eagle Crow Penguin
    • Mammals are Vertebrates
      • What is a mammal?
      • Hair on their bodies
      • Nurse their young
      • Breath using lungs and air
      • Most, but not all, give birth to live young (instead of incubating an egg)
      • Warm blooded
    • There are Three Groups of Mammals
      • Monotremes
        • - These mammals lay eggs
      • Marsupials
        • - Young are born immature and grow in their mother’s pouch
      • Placental Mammals
        • - Unborn young are nourished through a placenta
        • Let’s see some examples!
    • Monotremes Spiny Anteater Duck-Billed Platypus These mammals lay eggs; after the babies hatch, the mothers nourish their young with milk. Today, monotremes live only in Australia and New Guinea.
    • Marsupials Kangaroo Koala Bear Sugar Glider Find more marsupials here: Marsupials!
    • Placental Mammals There are so many placental mammals! Let’s go to this website to explore some examples! Click Here to Explore!
    • Time to test your knowledge of animals with backbones and play some games!
