    @Ian Tait: Ian, Entomophagy is a fantastic idea for a new collection. I suspect Katja would be interested also: http://eol.org/users/35200 . She's renowned for her insect recipes. Do you want to share your photos via Flickr or iNaturalist (http://eol.org/info/contribute#Third)?

    Hi there, I'm a bit of a newbie here and at the moment my main focus is to set up a collection of mangrove species in the PhangNga region of Thailand. But over the last few years I have collected photos and information on edible insects (entomophagy) here in SE Asia which seems to fit well into your community. I will set up the collection in the near future if you are interested.

    @Yan Wong: Oops, this was keeping track of marine stats based on the WoRMS hierarchy. I think the WoRMS connector was redone and we forgot to update the code for this page. I'll put in a ticket to get this done. Thanks!

    @Nicole Yancy-Bowzer: Well, if we aren't animals, then we certainly aren't vertebrates, because all vertebrates are animals. And if we're not animals, then we're not amniotes...and we're definitely not mammals! I hope my jest is obvious. I agree with you that the issue is semantic; what I mean is it depends on if you're asking a taxonomist or, say, a philosopher. Botanists have the same argument with chefs that insist upon categorizing tomatoes, cucumbers, etc. as vegetables and not fruit. I say that we are animals, and we should be proud of it!

    Nicole Yancy-Bowzer commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    There is a debate concerning humans being animals. In the Webster dictionary, animals are defined as living creatures not human or plant. Another view point is that humans belong to the Animalia Kingdom deeming humans as animals. The rebuttal to this argument is that when the word animal came to language, humans were assumed to be their own alternative species therefore not classified as an animal. After such time, the Animalia Kingdom was derived from the same Latin word. The word animal derives from a Latin word animalia meaning "of breath" however, now we have learned not all animals have a breath. Others believe that these 6 kingdoms classify living organisms by their characteristic similarities and since humans poses mental characteristics not found in other animals, there would have been a seventh kingdom if our technology today existed when the kingdoms were created. The question of the day is, since humans belong to the Animalia Kingdom, are they indeed animals or by technical definition of the word animal, can we be classified as an Animalia but not an animal until we change the definition in the dictionary?
