Daily Book Graphics #7 / That's Life!

This is from A Grosset All-Color Guide: The Animal Kingdom published in 1971. This illustration accompanies the introduction and is, of course, meant to represent the diversity of the organisms included in the animal kingdom. It's a wonderfully strange collection of examples. I don't know why the human and monkey both appear as skeletons. And mammals are really over represented, so are vertebrates, Where are the arthropods!?!
