Where would you find an endoskeleton and where would you expect to find an exoskeleton (what kind of animals would have an exoskeleton)? What are their respective roles? What is an endoskeleton made of and how does this compare with an endoskeleton?

endo-skeleton = internal-skeleton (i.e. your bones). exo-skeleton = external-skeleton (i.e. bug shells). The job of the skeleton is to provide shape, structure and protection.

Endoskeleton is the internal body support structure such as bones while the exoskeleton is the external structure which supports body that being shells and scales etc. These are in contrast to the endoskeleton.

Do you mean exoskeleton?
