Desert Wildlife

Desert Insects

Insects, a major group of arthropods, have six-legs, an exoskeleton (hard part is on the outside) and three main body sections (head, thorax, and abdomen). Most insects have wings although not all of them fly. They are the most diverse group of animals on the Earth, with over a million described species—more than all other animal groups combined.
