      Hi HELLO KOI …and hello hello again!

      Zoology is the study of animals. It can include the classifications of animals into groups (e.g. animals with backbone and animals without backbone, and the sub-grouping (and sub-sub-grouping) of those); it can include studying how animal bodies work, how animals evolved, behaviour of animals, animals and their environments. And it cover a range of animals from the very basic sponges in the sea (yes, they are animals!) to insects to frogs to fluffy lions.

      Studying of parasites, as I know it, was included in Zoology too and it’s counted as applied zoology.
