↑ In principle it's the name of the dude who first gives the critter its binomial pedigree. E. g. Turdus merula (L.) is the European blackbird which is common enough, I think, to have been named by the great Linné/Linnaeus (the L.) himself.

As for Paukenschläger, I borrowed it from Jean Ray's novels where it is a recurring name for crazy scientists. (Meaning something like "drum hitter", while Paukenschlägel are tympani mallets.)



This site is exhausting. :|

Nope. It's just that you have to buy the bush dinner and talk to it and such... :)

Estonian workers rescued a dog from freezing waters — and then discovered it was a wolf
  • The men rescued the animal from the Parnu river and took it to a clinic for treatment
  • The "dog", which was revealed to be a wolf, was treated for hypothermia and low blood pressure
  • It was released back into the wild with a radio tracker after making a full recovery
