The Challenge

INSECTS: Any of numerous usually small arthropod animals of the class Insecta, having an adult stage characterized by three pairs of legs and a body segmented into head, thorax, and abdomen and usually having two pairs of wings. Insects include the flies, crickets, mosquitoes, beetles, butterflies, and bees.

INSEKTE is geleedpotige diertjies waarvan die liggaam in drie dele verdeel is: die kop, die borsstuk en die agterlyf. Die kop het slegs twee voelhorings, terwyl die borsstuk drie paar pote en, in baie gevalle, twee paar vlerke het.

ARACHNIDA: Arachnids are a class (Arachnida) of joint-legged invertebrate animals in the subphylum Chelicerata. All arachnids have eight legs, although in some species the front pair may convert to a sensory function. The term is derived from the Greek word ἀράχνη (aráchnē), meaning “spider”.

CENTIPEDES: Centipedes (from Latin prefix centi-, “hundred”, and pes, pedis, “foot”) are arthropods belonging to the class Chilopoda of the subphylum Myriapoda. They are elongated metameric animals with one pair of legs per body segment. Despite the name, centipedes can have a varying number of legs from under 20 to over 300. Centipedes have an odd number of pairs of legs, e.g. 15 or 17 pairs of legs (30 or 34 legs) but never 16 pairs (32 legs).

Iets interessants:Insekte is van nature klein. Daar was glo wel ’n tamaai groot naaldekoker met ’n vlerkspan van driekwart meter in die tyd van die dinosourusse, maar insekte se bou is nou maar eenmaal so dat hulle nie reuse kan wees nie. ;-)
