Vertebrates/ˈvɜrtɨbrəts/ are animals that are members of the subphylumVertebrata/-ɑː/ (chordates with backbones). Vertebrates include the overwhelming majority of the phylumChordata, with currently about 64,000 species described. Vertebrates include the jawless fish, bony fish, sharks and rays, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, and birds. Extant vertebrates range in size from the frog species Paedophryne amauensis, at as little as 7.7 mm (0.3 inch), to the blue whale, at up to 33 m (110 ft). Vertebrates make up about 4% of all described animal species; the rest are invertebrates, which lack backbones.
