About Fish

Life on earth is certainly diverse; over 2 billion species have been identified. To help organize all this biological diversity, animals with similar characteristics are grouped into classes. At Sunset Zoo we exhibit several animal classes including: mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates.

Fish live in water and typically breathe through gills; they are the largest group of vertebrates and were the first backboned animals to appear on Earth. Fish are cold-blooded and use fins to swim. A fish’s age is determined by growth rings found on their scales or small bones in the inner ear, similar to the rings of a tree trunk.
