100 Animals

by Rabbi Katy Z. Allen

My next three lists provide a peek at the more-than-human world, based on the Five Kingdom system of classification. Today's list is of 100 animals, chosen as they came to mind. If you decide to create your own list, there are estimated to be more than 1,200,000 animal species on Earth, most of them insects. With another 10,000 discovered each year, you will have plenty to choose from. This list of animals, together with the lists to come, give just a a hint of the complexity of the ecosystems we inhabit.
