This will be a running list of the animals we spot around our house so once I identify them I don’t have to look them up again. Forgive me if my classifications and identifications are wrong. I’m open to any corrections to my attempt at being a zoologist.

Gastropods & Worms – Animals that have no legs, with the exception of snakes.

Birds – Animals that have two legs, and generally fly.

Amphibians & Reptiles – Animals with four legs, or no legs (snakes), but with a lack of hair.

Mammals – Animals with four legs, and hair. Not counting the friends who come over walking upright.

Insects – Animals with six legs.

Arachnids – Animals with eight legs.
