Abstract: Exoskeletons are a feature of some of the worlds strongest creatures. An Exoskeleton is the stiff covering on the outside of some creatures like the arthropods like scorpions and crustaceans. Having a hard covering on the outside in the form of an exoskeleton is a great defence against external threats. Just like the natural exoskeletons protect some of these animals soft, inner organs from injury, artificially powered exoskeletons have also been incorporated into human lives to provide an excellent survival strategy. An exoskeleton is the external skeleton that supports and protects an animal's body, in contrast to the internal skeleton (endoskeleton) of, for example, a Human. In usage, some of the larger kinds of exoskeletons are known as "shells". Examples of exoskeleton animals include insects such as grasshoppers and cockroaches, and crustaceans such as crabs and lobsters, snails, clams, tusk shells, chitons and nautilus, are also exoskeletons.
