As we learned today, animals are multcellular, eukaryotic organisms.
Most animals are motile and are heterophs. The embryo's pass through
the blastula stage. Animals have muscles to help them move and
nerve tissue which sends signals. We also know that they can be
vertebrate or inverebrate. You may read more at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal

-If you ended up yelling for eight years, seven months and six days
you would have enough sound energy to heat up a cup of coffee.

Today when I went onto the internet, (my homepage is sympatico)
and I was reading today's news I saw that a women in India had a
baby. But what surprised me was that she was 70 YEARS OLD!!!
I thought that it was crazy, because who can actually have a baby
when they are 70? It was her first time giving birth and the baby is
perfectly heathly. Even though she conceived through vitro fertilization

treatment they do not know if she is the world's oldest woman to have
a baby because she has no birth cerificate.
