great idea

I think it's a lot easier to find pictures with these albums by groups, but I wonder whether this page should exclude mountain goats (which have their own album).

Re: great idea

i was looking for the family of ibex and chamois and realized that they are in the same subfamily.
i know that there is allready a album for mountain goats but at least they belong to the subfamily of caprinae as well... that's why they are in this album.

cheers, flow.

Re: Great one, FLOW ...


i had a look at wikipedia: the desert bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis nelsoni) is part of the subfamily Caprinae.

cheers, flow.
