Meet Our Underwater Neighbors

Invertebrates of the Ocean
Age group: Elementary School

In this series of short videos, you’ll meet members of the main groups of invertebrates that live in the ocean—anemones, corals, snails, shrimp, crabs, sea stars and sea urchins. (If you want to impress your friends, you can say you’ve learned about animals from three different phyla: Cnidaria, Arthropoda and Echinodermata). And just for fun, you’ll also meet some of the most popular vertebrates on the 40 Acres: residents of the UT Turtle Pond.
