Characteristics of Kingdom Animals (Phyllum Vertebrates)

Today on the Biology class our teacher, Cecilia Adem, asked us to follow her instructions on the whiteboard and post the information on our Blogs. We used the information of pages 9 and 10 from our Biology books. Down here is the chart we made in class by the information of the books.
