The phylum, Arthropoda, which consists of more than two-thirds of the animal species on earth constitutes the largest group of the animal kingdom. The reasons for the success of arthropods are as follows:
1. Presence of jointed legs that allow more mobility on land.
2. Hard exoskeleton is present which is made up of chitin that protects the body,
3. The hard exoskeleton also reduces water loss from the body of arthropods making them more adapted to terrestrial conditions.Answered by Pragya Singh | 1 year ago
