The Arthropodium


Did you know that mites use dung beetles as flying taxis, from one dung heap to another?



Insects, spiders, scorpions, crustaceans, millipedes...: meet animals with 6 or more legs in the Arthropodium (from the Ancient Greek "arthron," meaning 'segment' and "pous/podos," meaning 'foot'). Observe the external skeleton of arthropods: it consists of segments, some of which bear legs or jointed appendages. 80% of all known animal species belong to arthropods, and, as you will see, they maintain relationships with all other organisms.
