Nature Quiz - Insects and Spiders - Insects 2 (Questions)

Insects have exoskeletons which means their skeletons are on the outside of their bodies. Not only does this protect the insect, it also keeps water inside their bodies so they don't dry out. Many insects can carry 50 times their own body weight. This is the equivalent of an adult human lifting two cars full of people!
