Insects are the largest group of animals on Earth.
They may be over 90% of animal species.

Insects have three body parts: a head, a thorax and an abdomen.

Insects have two antennae joined to the head.

Insects have six legs (three pairs) joined to the thorax.
Ants, bees, beetles, butterflies, cockroaches and mosquitos are insects.

Centipedes, snails, spiders and worms do not have six legs.
They are not insects. They are other invertebrate animals.

On the thorax, some insects have two (one pair) or four wings (two pairs).

Inside the abdomen is the stomach, the heart, and the excretory system.
