Vertebrates

  1. 1. Animals with backbones
  2. 2. Animals with backbones • Part of an animal’s skeleton • Allows larger, heavier animals to move about
  3. 3. Body temperature does not change much Use energy from food to keep a consistent body temperature
  4. 4. Cannot control their body temperature Changes with their surroundings Get heat from outside their bodies
  5. 5. bony fish cartilagino us fish jawless fish reptiles birds amphibians mammals
  6. 6. jawless and cartilaginous fish have skeletons made of rubbery cartilage jawless fish have mouths that act like suction cups bony fish are the largest vertebrate class and have skeletons and scale coverings
  7. 7. Cold-blooded vertebrates that spend their time in water and on land. begins its life in water, hatch from eggs have gills to allow breathing in water, as they grow their parts changed to allow life on land Breath through skin- skin needs to stay moist, if it dries out the animal will die.
  8. 8. Reptiles are cold blooded animals that live on land Have dry skin, with scales/plates Acts like a waterproof covering use lungs to breathe lay tough eggs, which keep moisture in
  9. 9. Birds are warm blooded vertebrates with feathers and wings. Light feathers keep the bird dry and warm have beaks and 2 clawed, scaled feet. light hallow bones, shape of wings and strong flight muscles, allow for flight lay eggs with strong shells and keep warm by sitting on them
  10. 10. Mammal is a warm-blooded vertebrate with fur or hair Can live in trees, water, most places on Earth take care of offspring 3 groups are classified by how they take care of their young: give live birth, lay eggs, produce milk to feed to young
