VIDEO BY JAMES SPENCER | POST BY TOMMY MUELLER
"ANIMALS ARE AMAZING. THE ANIMAL KINGDOM IS THE LARGEST AND MOST DIVERSE OUT OF THE FIVE KINGDOMS OF LIVING THINGS. SO FAR, OVER 2 MILLION SPECIES HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED."
For this week's blog post, I decided to review a video called Animals are Amazing by James Spencer. Mr. Spencer dives into the Animal Kingdom, defining terms genus and species.
- genus – a principal taxonomic category that ranks above species and below family, and is denoted by a capitalized Latin name, e.g., Leo.
- species – a group of living organisms consisting of similar individuals capable of exchanging genes or interbreeding. The species is the principal natural taxonomic unit, ranking below a genus and denoted by a Latin binomial, e.g., Homo sapiens.
