How many legs are there on an insect?


Not too many people know that the number of species of insects ranges from 2 million to 30 million.  Believe it or not, new species of insects are continually being found.  Keep in mind that the most species of insects live in tropical areas.  It is widely known the fact that all insects have six legs (three pairs of jointed legs) and four wings (two pairs).  Needless to say, the body of an insect has three main parts: a head, a thorax, and an abdomen.
