Animals without a backbone are everywhere from worms, butterflies, to crayfish! But did you know that over 96% of all animals in the world are invertebrates? Let’s take a walk with the Invertebrate Team to learn about the good and bad bugs and other cool critters that are part of the web of life in every ecosystem.
