Indiana has a wide range of animals. Southern Indiana has some bears and mountain lions, as well as coyotes, white tail deer, and red tail hawks. There are also the usual skunks, raccoons, possums, squirrels, beavers, rabbits, chipmunks and foxes. Indiana has wild turkeys, quail, pheasant, as well as many other types of birds........

All birds, reptiles, bony fish, and mammals are vertebrates because they have backbones (spines made up of many vertebrae). Some examples of Indiana animals that are vertebrates would be river catfish, flying squirrels, red-winged Blackbirds, copperhead snakes, cardinals, moles, and whitetail deer.

All Insects (like Ohio River Valley mosquitoes), earthworms, butterflies, crawdads (craw fish), dung beetles, and brown-recluse and "daddy long legs" Spiders are examples of invertebrates that are indigenous to Indiana. Invertebrates don't have a backbone, don't have internal skeletons, or central nervous systems with brains.
