Animals with an internal skeleton made of bone are called vertebrates. Vertebrates include fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, primates, rodents and marsupials.

Although vertebrates represent only a very small percentage of all animals, their size and mobility often allow them to dominate their environment.
