Type of animal science: Classification, evolution Fields of study: Anatomy, evolutionary science, paleontology, systematics (taxonomy) Velociraptors are a group of human-sized theropods (carnivorous dinosaurs) that existed during the Cretaceous era in
North America and Asia.
Type of animal science: Anatomy, classification, reproduction Fields of study: Anatomy, marine biology, ornithology, zoology Vertebrates, chordate animals with backbones, include fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Although numerically
smaller than invertebrates in total population, vertebrates are the largest animals on earth, due to the increased
weight-carrying capacity allowed by the spine and endoskeletal system.
Type of animal science: Anatomy, classification, ecology, reproduction Fields of study: Anatomy, reproductive biology, zoology Vultures are large, carrion-eating birds, useful ecologically because decomposing carrion might otherwise endanger
the health of humans and animals. Vultures live in Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Africa.
