I will list all the Latin animal group names I know (without searching the net) and you dear readers can add to the list in comments or do your own post.
I’ll give a hearty congratulations (I hear you say “Wow really Lou? You’re so very very generous”) to the most interesting or informative comment on the subject.
OK let’s start with the easy ones that almost everyone knows -
..then the next level -
- Lupine – wolf
- Ovine – sheep
- Ursine – bear
- Porcine – pig
- Equine - horse
- Piscine – fish
OK now it’s getting tough but I can think of at least one more -
- Asinine - donkey
Aha a more obscure one just popped into my head. I must admit I only know this one because I remember my teacher telling us when I was about 10 and for some reason it stuck in my head -
- Aquiline – eagle
OK consider yourself challenged all you brainiacs out there to come up with more. There are hundreds and hundreds so put your thinking caps on. Use the net if you must though that somewhat takes the fun out of it.
