cephalization A tendency in the development of animals to localization of important organs or parts in or near the head.
closed circulatory system Closed circulatory systems have the blood closed at all times within vessels.
coelom The fluid-filled cavity within the body of most multicellular animals.
colonial Living in close association with one's species.
fluid feeding Feeding on the fluids of another organism.
endoskeleton A rigid support structure found within an organism.
excretion The process by which waste products of metabolism and other non-useful materials are eliminated from an organism.
exoskeleton A rigid external covering for the body in some invertebrate animals, especially arthropods, providing both support and protection.
