Terrestrial animals are animals that live predominantly or entirely on land (e.g., cats, ants, spiders), as compared with aquatic animals, which live predominantly or entirely in the water (e.g., fish, lobsters, octopuses), or amphibians, which rely on a combination of aquatic and terrestrial habitats (e.g., frogs, or newts).wikipedia

Terrestrial animals are animals that live predominantly or entirely on land (e.g., cats, ants, spiders), as compared with aquatic animals, which live predominantly or entirely in the water (e.g., fish, lobsters, octopuses), or amphibians, which rely on a combination of aquatic and terrestrial habitats (e.g., frogs, or newts). Terrestrial invertebrates include ants, flies, crickets, grasshoppers and spiders.
Ants thrive in most ecosystems and may form 15–25% of the terrestrial animal biomass.

Terrestrial animals are animals that live predominantly or entirely on land (e.g., cats, ants, spiders), as compared with aquatic animals, which live predominantly or entirely in the water (e.g., fish, lobsters, octopuses), or amphibians, which rely on a combination of aquatic and terrestrial habitats (e.g., frogs, or newts).
They inhabit a wide variety of habitats, with most species living within terrestrial, fossorial, arboreal or freshwater aquatic ecosystems.

Fish eyes are similar to those of terrestrial vertebrates like birds and mammals, but have a more spherical lens.

Planarian

Some species are terrestrial and are found under logs, in or on the soil, and on plants in humid areas.

Invertebrate

Terrestrial invertebrates include ants, flies, crickets, grasshoppers and spiders.
One type of invertebrate respiratory system is the open respiratory system composed of spiracles, tracheae, and tracheoles that terrestrial arthropods have to transport metabolic gases to and from tissues.

Tetrapod

However, most tetrapod species today are amniotes, most of those are terrestrial tetrapods whose branch evolved from earlier tetrapods about 340 million years ago (crown amniotes evolved 318 million years ago).

Cenozoic

Cenozoic EraCainozoicAge of Mammals
Most terrestrial lineages originated under a mild or tropical climate during the Paleozoic and Mesozoic, whereas few animals became fully terrestrial during the Cenozoic.
Mammals came to occupy almost every available niche (both marine and terrestrial), and some also grew very large, attaining sizes not seen in most of today's terrestrial mammals.

Truncatella (gastropod)

TruncatellaTruncatella'' (gastropod)
Many hundreds of gastropod genera and species live in intermediate situations, such as for example, Truncatella.
Truncatella is a genus of very small land snails with an operculum, terrestrial gastropod mollusks in the family Truncatellidae.

Arthropod

ArthropodaarthropodsEuarthropoda
However, most male terrestrial arthropods produce spermatophores, waterproof packets of sperm, which the females take into their bodies.

Littorinoidea

Terrestrial invasion of gastropod mollusks has occurred in Neritopsina, Cyclophoroidea, Littorinoidea, Rissooidea, Ellobioidea, Onchidioidea, Veronicelloidea, Succineoidea, and Stylommatophora, and in particular, each of Neritopsina, Rissooidea and Ellobioidea has likely achieved land invasion more than once.
Littorinoidea are a superfamily of both sea snails and land snails which have a gill and an operculum, terrestrial and marine gastropod mollusks in the clade Littorinimorpha.

Gastropoda

Many hundreds of gastropod genera and species live in intermediate situations, such as for example, Truncatella.
Some of the more familiar and better-known gastropods are terrestrial gastropods (the land snails and slugs).
