What are Invertebrates?
Invertebrates are the most abundant creatures on the planet — comprising more than 97% of all known animal species. By definition, an invertebrate is an animal without a backbone. That includes jellyfish, sponges, worms, snails, bees, lobsters, and spiders.
Below is the list of invertebrates on exhibit at the Zoo or shown through Animals & You. Please visit the LAIR microsite for more information. Fact sheets will be added for all of the LAIR animals soon.
