•Junior Editor Quiz on- ARTHROPODS OKAYSIIT WHERE'S. yous. ) EXOSKELETOH? you 'vEeOT ME ALL INFUSED J QUESTION: Is an arthropod a plant or an animal? ANSWER: Plants have pods, so we understand our questioner's confusion. But the word arthro means joints, and has to do with animals, not plants. We understand Bill's mistake in the picture, too — if an arthropod has jointed legs, why isn't he an arthropod, too, since his limbs are also jointed? But he forgets that he has a spine or vertebra inside his body, which makes him a vertebrate. The arthopods are invertebrates: they have no bony skeletons inside their bodies. Instead, they have the stiff bony part outside, which is called an exoskeleton. Typical arthropods are insects, crustaceans like lobsters and -crabs, arachnids like spiders and ticks, centepedes and millepedes. It is a very large phylum, or group of animals. We feel very superior to the poor little arthropod, because we are so big and smart, and he is so small. But remember the enormous number of little arthros on our planet; these make up more than three fourths of all the earth's animals. That's a sobering thought when we're feeling cocky about ourselves. (Harry Bushe of Worcester, Mass., wins a prize for this question.
