The four innermost planets in the Solar System (Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars) are sometimes called the "terrestrial" planets because of their proximity to Earth ("Terra" in Latin) and their similarity as compact solid bodies with rocky surfaces.

The larger terrestrial planets, Earth and Venus, probably needed tens of millions of years to grow to their current size.

Terrestrial is another word for the rocky inner planets terra in latin is why they called it that!!!
