Most multicellular organisms have body plans that exhibit an element of symmetry; either radial or bilateral symmetry. Bilateral symmetry refers to organisms which have a single plane of symmetry with each side a mirror image of the other. Although externally these species appear symmetrical, internally, the organs are positioned in an asymmetric manner.
