Then, what are the two main groups of animals?
Because there are so many different types of animals in the world biologists have sorted them into groups. This is called classifying. The two main groups of animals are vertebrates and invertebrates. Vertebrates are all animals with a backbone.
Similarly, how many animal groups are there? The six basic animal groups include amphibians, birds, fish, invertebrates, mammals, and reptiles. Although there are many other groups of animals, and the way scientists classify and categorize species changes frequently, in this article I'll keep it simple by focusing on just six basic groups.
Similarly one may ask, what are the 3 groups of animals?
Mammals have about six thousand different species, or kinds, of animals in their group or class. Mammals can be divided into three more groups based on how their babies develop. These three groups are monotremes, marsupials, and the largest group, placental mammals.
What are the five groups of animals?
There are many different animal classes and every animal in the world belongs to one of them. The five most well known classes of vertebrates (animals with backbones) are mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians.
