Animal classification. Animal Kingdom. Wildlife. Fauna



Classification

Through a classification process, things are ordered, animals in this case, based on traits or characteristics they have in common. As regards the classification of animals, they do not constitute a single group.

In order to classify living beings conveniently, all zoos in the world have agreed to follow guidelines to define living beings. These rules are as follows:

Starting with the larger group, the animal kingdom, these are divided into smaller and smaller categories.

Each animal belongs to a type or phylum, a subtype, a class, a order, to a family and a species.

Classification example for men:

Animal species

A species is a set of very similar living beings, capable of reproducing each other.   Every species has a Latin name, composed of a generic and a specific name.   Thus, the Latin name of man is Homo sapiens. The species tells us exactly what animal we are talking about.
