List of animal names
Many animals, particularly domesticated, have been given specific names for males, females, young, and groups. The best known source of many of the bizarre words used for collective groupings of animals is The Book of Saint Albans, an essay on hunting published in 1486 and attributed to Dame Juliana Berners.[1] Most terms used here may be found in common dictionaries and general information web sites.[2][3][4] Generic terms[edit] Terms by species or taxon[edit] See also[edit] Notes[edit] Jump up ^ The term "flange" was originally used to denote a group of baboons in a Not the Nine O'Clock News comedy sketch entitled "Gerald the Intelligent Gorilla" where it was used for comic effect.

What Does The Book Of Revelation Really Mean? This is the first installment of a three-part series. We’ve survived Harold Camping. We survived Y2K, albeit with less distress than our ancestors survived Y1K. Nevertheless, most Christian bookstores devote entire sections to the sort of “Bible Prophecy” literature that uses the Book of Revelation, among other biblical literature, to tell us that we are currently living in the last days. Here’s the truth: no academic interpreter of Revelation understands the book as a roadmap for the future, much less as telling contemporary Christians that these are the last days. What makes biblical scholars so certain that Revelation does not provide a roadmap for the future? First, the book itself insists that it’s addressed to a specific group of churches to speak to their own circumstances. A revelation (Greek: apokalypsis) of [or from] Jesus Christ, which God gave by means of him to show his [God’s? Working back, we observe several things. This Blogger’s Books and Other Items from...

11 Little-Known Words for Specific Family Members The words we use for family members in English are specific about some things, and vague about others. Our vocabulary marks a distinction between our mother and her sisters (some languages use one word for mother and maternal aunts), but doesn't say whether siblings are older or younger (some languages have different words for brother and sister depending on their age relative to you). We lack words that pick out particular family members (we have "cousin," but what about child-of-my-father's-brother?) as well as certain general terms (we have "siblings" for brothers-and-sisters, but what about nieces-and-nephews?) If you look hard enough, you can find some words to help fill in the gaps. 1. Child of your paternal uncle. 2. Your mother's brother. 3. Your nieces and nephews. 4. Your father's sister. 5. Your mother's sister. 6. Your father's brother. 7. Your mother's brother. 8. Your half-brother from the same mother. 9. Full brother, sharing both parents. 10. 11. *Oops.

(However, several nonvenomous species have similar coloration, including the scarlet snake, genus Cemophora, some of the kingsnakes and milk snakes, genus Lampropeltis, and the shovelnose snakes, genus Chionactis.) Most species of coral snake are small in size. Behavior[edit] Coral snake showing typically reclusive behavior of hiding under rotting wood. Coral snakes vary widely in their behavior, but most are very elusive, fossorial snakes which spend the vast majority of their time buried beneath the ground or in the leaf litter of a rainforest floor, coming to the surface only when it rains or during breeding season. Like all elapid snakes, coral snakes possess a pair of small fangs to deliver their venom (some coral snakes are rear fanged). Distribution[edit] New World coral snakes exist in the southern range of many temperate U.S. states. Old World[edit]

Historians Rank the “Most Important” Books on the Crusades | Andrew Holt, Ph.D. “As I write these words, it is nearly time to light the lamps; my pen moves slowly over the paper and I feel myself almost too drowsy to write as the words escape me. I have to use foreign names and I am compelled to describe in detail a mass of events which occurred in rapid succession; the result is that the main body of the history and the continuous narrative are bound to become disjointed because of interruptions. Ah well, “’tis no cause for anger” to those at least who read my work with good will. Provided here are the responses of several medieval historians who were asked to provide a list of the top ten “most important” books on the crusades. All contributions were added on July 27, 2017 unless otherwise noted. See also: The Most Influential Crusade Historians Contributors The Lists Alfred J. Coming soon.

Animal Adjectives Animal Adjectives While there are other forms of adjectives for animals, by far the greater majority of such words end in -ine; thus the following list deals excusively with this type. The -ine suffix comes from the Latin -inus and forms terms meaning 'of or relating to' or 'of the nature of'. Some of these words are sometimes even used in reference to people: how often have you heard of a woman moving with feline grace, for instance? Note that some animals share the same adjective, for example, badgers, ermines, ferrets, etc. are all musteline, while other animals can be descibed by more than one adjective.

Protected Tigers, Burning Bright Wildlife Conservation SocietyA tigress and her two cubs, via a camera trap in Thailand’s Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary. Tigers have delivered a bit of holiday cheer: populations are on the upswing, it turns out, in some protected areas in India and Thailand. In a field often dominated by news of felled forests and population declines, wildlife conservationists have taken heart from this development, while noting that tigers have a long, long way to go if they are to claw their way off the endangered species list. “If the conditions are right, tiger populations can recover, though there’s still plenty of challenges,” said Cristián Samper, the president and chief executive of the Wildlife Conservation Society. At the start of the 20th century, tigers numbered around 100,000 and occupied forests from Turkey to Russia to Indonesia. The Wildlife Conservation Society first homed in on the tiger problem in the 1960s, starting with India. But not all tigers can be saved.
