ABSTRACT
An animal is a member of the kingdom Animalia, one of the great kingdoms of living things. Animals are found in all parts of the world�in tropical and polar regions, in deserts and in bodies of water, underground, on mountains, and in the air. Some animals live inside plants, and some live in the bodies of other animals. There are animals so small that they can barely be seen with the unaided eye; at the other extreme are such gigantic creatures as elephants and whales. Many animals possess what can be called intelligence, but none can compare with humans in the quality and degree of such thought processes as insight, reasoning, and imagination.
