  1. Symmetry
    arrangement of body parts in relation to the central axis
  2. Radial
    • animal may be divided into any number of equal halves only along the central longitudinal axis
    • -like cylinder with different top and bottom
    •    -ex., jelly fish
  3. Bilateral
    • body parts usually in pairs on either side of the sagital axis
    • (1)  can be divided into two  parts only along that axis
  4. Terms for bilateral animals
    • anterior – head end
    • (i)    Contains brain and concentration of sensory structures
    •  posterior – tail end
    • dorsal – back side – faces up
    • ventral – belly side – faces down
  5. Body Cavities
    • Acoelomate
    • pseudocoelomate
    • eucoelomate
  6. Acoelomate
    • no body cavity
    • body filled with jelly-like substance
    • ex. flat worms
  7. pseudocoelomate
    • false” body cavity
    • have a body cavity but not lined with membrane
    • pseudocoelom is filled with fluid
  8. eucoelomate
    • “true coelom” 
    • have a body cavity lined with membrane

    • Mammals
  28. Amphibians– frogs, salamanders etc.
    • breed and lay eggs in water where larval development occurs (ex tadpole)– become adults and move onto land
    • ectothermic= cold blooded
  29. Reptiles – snakes, lizards, turtles, etc
    • Have totally terrestrial life history
