The Email We Got from Nathan ( entomologistt )

We got this information from Nathan Hill and he is an entomologist. Here is some feedback from him. We changed the changes he suggested us.

Hi Anna, Taryn,Abbie and Aria
Nice one I had a look at the link.  The songs are very catchy and the information is correct.  It does show pictures of caterpillars after a section on centipedes. Caterpillars actually only have 6 true legs (they are the larvae of insects) the rest of the leg like structures  - proto legs – are not true legs so caterpillars they are still grouped as insects even through it looks like they have more than 10.   I’m not sure what else you want me to provide feedback on.  This is a chart I refer to sometimes which shows how invertebrates fit in the classification table. It has a lot of other entomology jargon that 7-8 year olds do not need to know. For example echinoderms can simply be called the starfish group. I hope that helps. Keep up the great work. Regards Nathan
