There are about 200 million of insects and many different species. Generally, insects are arthropods with specialized extremities and a body divided into parts, covered in exoskeleton. In some cases, the exoskeleton can develop into a shell. Moreover, insects also have antennas, several extremities, and sometimes even wings. They are usually tiny, except for the beetles which are bigger.
Some insects feed on plant while others on meat or carrion. Given the fact that insects feed on other species, preventing them from turning into plagues, the fact that they have an important role in nature doesn’t come as surprise.
