Crustaceans to Color Online

Crustaceans are a class of animals that have a hard exoskeleton, jointed legs, and a segmented body that is bilaterally symmetrical. They have two pairs of sensory antennae, one pair of mandibles (for chewing food), and two pairs of maxillae (to help the mandibles in positioning the food). Crustaceans are invertebrates (they lack a backbone) and arthropods (which also includes the insects).

Most crustaceans live in water, but some live on land. Crustaceans are the most numerous animals in the oceans, but some crustaceans live on fresh water. There are about 30,500 species of crustaceans around the world.
