Animal Families & Genera
Animal Families and Genera is a subcategory which illustrates a sub-grouping of animals based on their taxonomic families and genera. Animal Families is the sixth of eight biological taxonomic ranks, and specifically refers to a grouping or sub grouping of animals. On the order of biological ranks, Families are between Order and Genus. Animal families are more specific than an animal order or class, yet not as specific as animal genus. Common animal families include domesticated animals such as dogs, cats and turtles, as well as a wide variety of other animals including bears, snakes, and whales. The following collections have been organized to better understand and browse Animals by Families and Genera.
