Felidae Pronunciation

I speak the words "felidae" and "carnivora" in this short video to show the pronunciation of these words. These are scientific words that are part of the subject of taxonomy. Taxonomy is concerned the classification of things including the scientific classification of the species of the world, both animal and plant. It is still a developing science as genetic profiling has refined the process of species classification. Early on, species were classified on appearance, anatomy, geographical range and behavior, things that could be seen with the naked eye. DNA testing digs deeper. In general, modern science (2011) has resulted in a reduction in the species and subspecies of wildcat.
