Startling Facts About Insects

Their body is composed of three segments: head, thorax, and abdomen. All incased in a hard exoskeleton. All insects also have a pair of antenna, compound eyes and three pairs of jointed legs. After that basic body plan, all kinds of amazing behaviors and abilities come to life.
