Hello everybody! My name is Steve and ill be your guide for tonight. Follow me!
Tonight we will talk about Kingdom Animalia
So what is Kingdom Animalia?
Well you see those bats? Those are animals, and all animals are placed into the Kingdom Animalia.
This Kingdom does not contain prokaryotes or protists. All members of Animalia are multicellular, and all are heterotrophs
This includes everything from the fish within this ocean, the birds that live in the trees, and any mammals that preside here also.
Amongst this Kingdom come different Phylums. Phylums are taxonomic ranks under the kingdom.
Phylums are determined solely based on the body plans of different animals.
Examples of these different body plans include gut sturcture, spine structure, presense of shells, and plenty of more characteristics.
Well, its about my bedtime. I hope you learned the bases of the animal kingdom and phylums.
Until our next lesson, Goodnight.
