Discovering Invertebrates

There are over a million different species of invertebrates, and most scientists agree that there are many more out there that we don’t know about yet. These are animals that do not possess a backbone or internal skeleton. At the Central Florida Zoo, we have several species of invertebrates, including Madagascar hissing cockroaches, eastern lubber grasshoppers, tarantulas and scorpions, both on display in our Insect Zoo and in our Education Department.
