The External Features of Animals
There are different kinds of animals living on Earth. Some of them look similar but some are different. We can identify them by their external features. The external features of an animal are the details of the animal that you can see.


We can group animals based on the external features that they share i.e. similarities in external features. Animals can be grouped in different ways, for examples:
