Are the vast majority of animals vertabrates or invertabrates?
- Anonymous1 decade agoFavorite Answer
The vast, vast majority are invertebrates.
Invertebrates include all the molluscs (clams, snails, octupus, squid), corals, jellyfish, crabs, lobsters, shrimp, spiders, sea stars, sea urchins, sponges, earthworms, roundworms, flatworms, ragworms, leeches, and perhaps most importantly, insects.
The number of species of beetles alone outweigh all of the vertebrates combined.

Most of the world contains invertabrates, mostly insects. since they do live almost anywhere.
