  1. order amphipoda

    The order Amphipoda is a classification of primarily marine-based crustaceans or small aquatic animals, but they can also be found in freshwater and terrestrial environments. This group is composed of various suborders, families, and species commonly known as scuds, side-swimmers, or sand fleas. These creatures are characterized by their laterally compressed bodies (sideways) and their unequal size of anterior and posterior legs, which allow them to be excellent swimmers. Many species under this order play important roles in the ecosystem by contributing to the organic matter recycling.
