You can tell insects from the other arthropods by looking for these features:
Three segmentsEvery adult insects body is divided into three distinct parts:
Six legsAdult insects have six legsno more, no fewer.
WingsAside from birds and bats, adult insects are the only living animals with wings.
Not all insects have wings, but if an animal has wings and isnt a bird or a bat, its an insect.
|All of these are features of adult insects.
Immature insects may look very different from adults.
