Vertebrate Animals | Educational Video for Kids
Today we’re going to look at vertebrate
animals. As you know, we can classify animals in various
ways, depending on the characteristics we look at. Today, we’re going to some animals by the internal structure of their bodies. According
to this feature, we can classify them into… Vertebrate Animals, which have an internal
skeleton, that means bones…. And Invertebrate Animals… like this worm, which has no backbone…
in fact, no bones at all. All vertebrate animals have an internal skeleton
made up of… bones. Bones are very strong, and give bodies their
shape, they hold it up, nice and straight. The spine – the backbone – is made of
a series of articulated pieces of bone, called the vertebrae, which allow the body to move
in a certain way, and flexible. Vertebrate animals’ bodies are divided into
the head… the torso… and the limbs … Yes …… the head … the body… and the arms
and legs. Some vertebrates are aquatic… like these
fish … Others are terrestrial… like this bear. And other fly… like this eagle. Vertebrates can move in many different ways… walking… jumping… crawling… climbing…
and when they have running … but sometimes it’s not enough.
There are also many vertebrate animals that move by flying, like birds and bats. For example,
these eagles… which unfortunately for the fox, are much faster than him. Vertebrates are classified into five groups: Fish… Reptiles… Amphibians … Birds…
and Mammals… like this big howler monkey. Now let’s remember the most important things
we’ve learnt about vertebrate animals. Vertebrate animals can be classified into
5 groups: Fish… reptiles… amphibians, birds… and mammals.
Vertebrates have internal skeleton made of bones… The body of this kind of animal is divided into head, torso and limbs… They move in many ways: walking, jumping, crawling, flying, climbing and when they need
to, running…. See you in the next video, and don’t forget
