"What's this?" you ask? Well, scientists like to group animals together by specific features so they can make generalizations about an entire group of animals. Below is a collapsed hierarchy of categories.

Here are a few pointers:

  • Deuterostomes are the higher-level animals, like birds, reptiles, mammals, amphibians, and fish. Protostomes are lower-level animals like bugs and squishy things.
  • Mammals have hair. Sauropsidans have scales and/or feathers.
  • Cetartiodactyls are either whales or animals with hooves. The hooved animals in this group have either two or four toes. This would be your cows, antelopes, sheep, deer, and hippos.
  • Euarchontoglires are mice or men, and their relatives-- other rodents and primates.
  • Pegasoferaean means "wild winged horse". "Wild" refers to the meat-eating dogs, cats, and bears. "Winged" refers to the bats. "Horse" refers to horses, rhinos, and tapirs-- hooved animals with one or three toes.
  • Feraeans ("wild animals") are clawed meat-eaters. Perissodactyls have hooves and usually are vegetarians.
  • Caniformes are dog-shaped. This includes bears and their relatives. Feliformes are cat-shaped.
  • Arctoids are bear-shaped. This includes wolverines, raccoons, and weasels. Canids are dogs and their close relatives, including foxes.
  • Canines are virtually all the same shape and easily confused with one another.
  • Pantherines are big cats that are panther-shaped.
  • Primates are human-shaped, and this includes monkeys.
  • Rodents are furry creatures with buck-teeth for gnawing. Mice, rats, beavers, porcupines. However this does not include rabbits, hares and pikas.
  • Lagomorphs are creatures resembling pikas, hares and rabbits.
  • Avians are birds. Serpents are snakes.
