How do insect legs work? Especially the really small ones that are thinner than human hair? Are they moved by muscles just like peoples?
Thanks.

Insects have exoskeletons rather than endoskeletons. Insects' muscles are on the inside of their hollow, cylindrical skeleton - rather than like us where the muscles are on the outside of inner skeletons.

Was there something else you wanted to know? Size? Did you know our muscles are merely large bundles of microscopic strands?

That answers my question.
Thanks.
