Insects are highly adaptable and live in many different geographic locations, including open fields, dry deserts, icy mountains, marshes and near lakes or rivers. Most insects are land-based animals and do not spend time in water; however, there are a few insects that do live in water or that are born in water.
Insects are unique in the way that they communicate, as they do not all rely on sound. While many insects are able to make sounds or to sing, other insects use pheromones to communicate while others use visual cues. All insects, however, are born from eggs and begin their life by eating inside of the egg before hatching into the world.
