By looking at the features of minibeasts, we discover that they are in fact a small group of animals within a much larger and more diverse group called invertebrates. We, as vertebrates, can observe and feel the advantages of having a bony skeleton but how do invertebrates support, protect and move their bodies and how does their habitat help? Do invertebrates have any impact on our lives or could we live happily in our world without them? Through discussion and investigation of real specimens we find out how much we depend on other animals for our own survival.
