Many mollusks animals by what they eat. Snakes, hawks, have a soft body inside a hard outside shell. and owls eat mice.

Fish and snakes are vertebrates would weigh too much on big animals. So too. Vertebrate animals can look different, animals without backbones cannot grow as but they all have backbones. large as vertebrates. There are five groups of vertebrates. Fish, Most sea jellies live in the ocean, while amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals worms live in the soil. A small area of soil are the five kinds of vertebrates. Fish spend can have several million roundworms. There their lives in water. Most fish have scales are more animals without backbones than and breathe through gills.
