What body parts make an insect an insect?
Antennae, compound eyes, external skeleton, three body parts and six legs are what makes an insect an insect. Specifically, an insect has one pair of antennae -- sometimes called feelers -- on the first of its three body parts, the head. Thousands of photoreceptor units make up an insect's eyes. Its skeleton supports its body from the outside, not the inside as is the case with humankind. It will have noticeable middle (thorax) and end (abdomen) body regions as well as three sets of jointed, segmented legs.
