There are around 9 to 10 million animal species that inhabit the earth. Only 800,000 species are identified.

fact:The lifespan for most Hammerheads is between 25 and 35 years. It’s likely that over time, they are beginning to live longer lives. The reason for this is currently unknown.

The sizes of animals range from a few celled organism like the mesozoans to animals weighing many tons like the blue whale.

fact: Clownfish have a symbiotic (long-term mutual benefit) relationship with sea anemone which is a fish-eating plant-like animal that has poisonous tentacles.

support and protection is provided by the skeletal system.

fact: snapping turtles have few predators when older,

a gaseous exchange of taking in oxygen and giving out carbon dioxide. This process takes place in organs of respiration like the lungs, gills, book gills and book lungs and some animals skin is also used for respiration.

fact: a tortoise is a turtle, but a turtle isn't a tortoise

fact: The Venus flytrap plant has derived its name from the Roman goddess of love-Venus.

Cell walls of plant cells are comprised of cellulose.

Fact: The pitchers of this plant trap insects that are then digested as food.

They have an ability to grow by cell division.

Fact: There at least 194 species of sundew, or Drosera, and they can be found from Alaska all the way to New Zealand.

Plants reproduce both by sexual and asexual.

Facts: The cactus prefers free draining soils, strong sunlight, but not high temperatures

They obtain their energy from sun through photosynthesis.

Facts: The dragon blood tree is called that because the sap is blood red.

Plants reproduce both by sexual and asexual.

Facts: Hydnora africana is a parastic plant that is often classified amongst the strangest plants in the world.

Organisms within Kingdom Plantae are multicellular, eukaryotic and autotrophic.

Fact: species of plants characterized by small hollow sacs that actively capture and digest tiny animals such as insect larvae, aquatic worms, and water fleas.

They lack motility.

Fact:White baneberry is also known as "doll's eyes" because of its white berries with prominent black spot that look like eyes of porcelain dolls.

Most of the plants are eukaryotic and chlorophyll containing organisms.

Fact:Aloe has been added to burn-healing products for years which can be taken gingerly from a plant itself.

Cell walls of plant cells are comprised of cellulose.

Fact:The name is derived from the Ancient Greek words λίθος (lithos), meaning "stone," and ὄψ (ops), meaning "face," referring to the stone-like appearance of the plants.
