    This is such a cool thread!! Very well done and thought out!
    Just one teensy edit though, my avatar is an endangered red wolf (Canis rufus), not a coyote. I’ve been involved with the Red Wolf recovery program so I understand how easy it is to get the two mixed up!! Thank you!

    Zoochatters apparently need to spend more time looking at pinniped photos because I knew what they were right away, just not which of the two species ;)

    So that's what it was. I could never tell (then again, I just realised the other day that @lintworm 's avatar was a Shoebill).

    I knew they were Northern Elephant Seals right away, though.

    I tought they were some kind of sea lions or fur seals (another of the various matters that ThylacineAlive accused me to have an opinion off when I never pronounced about this item). Really are you able to distinguish elephant seals from this photo??? :eek:

    I've split the taxonomic discussion off to the other thread (linked below) for now, in order to keep this thread on track.

    THANKS Chli :*

    If for me, you can also delete the entire taxonomy thread split (there are also a former, in-use taxonomy thread, and no need of a duplicate :) )
