Classification - Identification

The classification, common names and scientific names are based on 'Taxonomy in Flux (TiF)' by John H. Boyd III.

The identification of subspecies is based on location only in most of cases, and is therefore unreliable, inconsistent or even meaningless. It is added for purpose of fun only.

If you find errors, please contact site owner.

Our Policies

  • Our collections only comprise photographs of the living creatures we have actually encountered by chance. None of them was taken automatically.
  • We don't use any bait, scent, artificial roost, audio devices or other unfair method to lure birds or animals except for some rare cases marked with relevant icons (We often talk / whistle to them with our own organs though).
  • Except for 'chained mammals' section, our collections do not include any animal in captivity. They may include, however, domesticated mammals freely walking, wandering or reposing at the time of our encounter.
  • Similarly, you will only find plants and fungi growing wild. Rare exceptions include farm products like finger millet or rape flowers.
