Invertebrate There are so many species of invertebrates out there to choose from, and I choose the centipede. Although they can be considered creepy, and gross creatures, I thought of many but I was interested in learning more about centipedes and their anatomy specifically.

Body Plan and Anatomy Centipedes have many important factors to themselves that help it live its everyday life. One of the most important parts of the centipedes anatomy, are its pair of prominent antennae, which help them to smell and see around them, making the antennae their major sense organ. Many species of centipedes are blind, but others have more than one set of eyes on the front of their head shield. Overall, eyesight throughout all species is quite poor. Centipedes also have a very strong jaw, helping them to chew food efficiently, to gain all of the necessary nutrients from whatever they have eaten. Around the sides of their head, you will find a set of poison claws, which the centipede will use to poison and kill its prey for food. Centipedes also lack internal skin, however they are protected by a hard exoskeleton, leaving all their soft inside organs safe. Aside from all of these very important factors, the most obvious is the amount of legs centipedes have. Their 100 legs allow them to out run many predators, also increasing the overall survival rate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
