...Animal Kingdom
The animal kingdom is a taxonomic kingdom composed of multicellular, eukaryotic organisms. Mostly, their body structures become fixed as they develop, yet still some organisms in this kingdom have the ability to undergo metamorphosis. The majority of these organisms are motile, which means they can move on their own and with spontaneity. All animals are heterotrophic, which implies that they depend on other organisms for food. Animals live in places that provide their...
