1 There are four main kinds of arthropods. An arthropod is an invertebrate with an exoskeleton, a segmented body, and jointed legs.There are four main kinds of arthropods.1. Crustaceans3. Centipedes &Millipedes2. Spiders & ScorpionsTicks & Mites4. Insects
2 There are three characteristics that all arthropods have. There are more than 1 million kinds of arthropods on Earth.There are three characteristics that all arthropods have.1. exoskeleton2. segmented body3. jointed legs
3 An exoskeleton is a hard, outer covering. All arthropods have anAn exoskeleton is a hard, outer covering.
4 Some arthropods grow too big for their exoskeletons. molt.These arthropods willMolting is to leave an exoskeleton and grow a new one.
5 More Characteristics of Arthropods Arthropods have segmented bodies.Arthropods have jointed legs.Arthropods have a heart topump blood through their bodies.Arthropods reproduce sexually.

31 Myriapods Millipede (Diplopoda) Centipede (Chilopoda) [one pair of antennae, head & trunk regions, trunk with many pairs of legs]Millipede (Diplopoda)Two pair of legs per visible segment, attached under body.Centipede (Chilopoda)Pair of fangs under head, one pair legs per visible segment - attached to side of body.No fangs, no eyes, legs attached to side of body.
