Next are the hydra, obelia, and coral, which all have radial symmetry, nematocysts, and statocysts. These 3 also have diploblastic tissues. I added the unique cells that they possess, stinging nematocysts and balance-sensing statocysts. Next up are the crawfish, spider, millipede, and grasshopper. All are arthropods with segmentation and jointed appendages. I added that all four of these organisms have bilateral symmetry, and a body plan that includes a head, abdomen, and thorax or some variation of this (cephalothorax). Next are the tapeworms, planaria, and vinegar cell who lack segmentation and a complete digestive system. However, they do have useful organ systems. After these three come the leech and earthworm. These two do have complete digestive systems and have a clitellum that allows them to secrete a sac where eggs are stored. After this come the
