PLEASE SEE ALL THE INDIVIDUAL DROP-DOWN MENUS and NEW SUB-MENUS
This page has been reorganised under the general heading of WILDLIFE and now excludes BIRDS which have their own pages and sub-pages. I have added (Nov 2104) a Raccoon taken by Becky. I’ve never seen one, though they are around and they are a problem for the ground-nesting parrots in the National Park. There’s nowhere else it comfortable fits. Here is perfect!
The WILDLIFE drop-down menus otherwise remain as before:
- MARINE LIFE + new sub-menus dedicated to WHALES & DOLPHINS - MANATEES - SHELLS & CORALS - REEF FISH – SHARKS & RAYS – STARFISH & CO – BONEFISH - and more…
- MISC WILDLIFE (all other terrestrials) + sub-menu for ABACO BARBS (wild horses). You’ll find LAND CRABS, CURLY TAIL LIZARDS, POTCAKES, ABACO BOAS, BAHAMAS HUTIAS, PRAYING MANTIS & a TARANTULA (Ground Spider)
- FLORA – I appreciate this is not strictly a conventional wildlife category, but the plants and trees are wild and alive, are they not?
- ABACO WILDLIFE CHARITY LINKS with eezi-2-uze links to joining, support and donation pages. This page is quite often updated and expanded
PUTTING THE FAMILY IN ORDER
Puzzled by the whole wildlife CLASS, Order, Family, Genus, Species thing? Puzzle no longer. My blogging friend STANDING OUT IN MY FIELD explains the whole thing with copious examples at PUTTING THE FAMILY IN ORDER Say goodbye to taxonomy misery now; say hello to “I think you’ll find you are referring to a genus, not a species” – and lose friends fast! Here are her simple diagrams to demonstrate to system (props to SOIMF)
