Hey there everyone!
 
This thread purpose is to properly categorize Species tags that are lacking the Brown colour (specific to Species).
 
If you come across any Species tag that are still green please mention it below following this provided formatting:
 
Please link your tags like this:  
“@[email protected]”:/tags/pony
 
So it looks like this:  
pony
 
Don’t forget the group the species belong to, ie mammal, bird, reptile, amphibian, fish, arthropod.
 
Regarding fictional species like Pokémon and Digimon, due to their unclear nature they should only imply their primary classes i.e; mammal, bird, reptile, fish, etc. They should not imply actual IRL species as they are their own species.
 
A Staff Member will work on your request as soon as they can, only bump your request if a considerable amount of time has passed.
 
Cheers!

If this is supposed to be a furry site, then taxonomy is important. For starters, tags like “mammal”, “reptile”, “amphibian” have to be present here and preferably be implied by the individual species tags.
 
And the taxonomy doesn’t stop there of course, for example look at this image from Wikipedia regarding canines: https://i.imgur.com/wBVFQmz.png
 
Currently the tag fox implies vulpine. But there are other species that have name which includes the word “fox” but they are not in fact “vulpine” at all, because they are part of a different evolutionary branch of the Caninae subfamily. On e621 foxes are just canine . Therefore there should be no such tag as “vulpine”, just “fox” as a genus name, and under that we have all the different foxes that have the word “Vulpes” as their genus name.
 
There is no need to reinvent the wheel, e621 has all that taxonomy tagging rules already figured out, just check how it’s done there.

EDIT: From simpler things:
 
cougar needs to be set as species
 
EDIT 2: Same for:
 
sergal
 
EDIT 3:
 
chuki - it’s a species of mouse-like rodents created by Roy Arashi (https://twitter.com/RoyArashi, https://www.furaffinity.net/user/roy/
 
furred dragon - for the dragons that are not covered in scales but in fur (so they are not even scalies)
 
EDIT 4:
 
opossum  
rat
 
EDIT 5
 
siamese - breed of domestic cat
 
EDIT 6:
 
scalie
 
next there are two similar but distinct things, so they need descriptions:
 
viper - vipers (latin name: Viperidae) are a family of venomous snakes found in most parts of the world
 
viper (x-com) - alien race from the x-com franchise
 
EDIT 7:
 
poro - creatures from the game League of Legends
 
EDIT 8:
 
crane - family of birds (latin name Gruidae)

A bunch of new species tags:
 
elf  
centaur  
minotaur  
troll  
draconequus  
angel
 
satyr and faun. I’m not an expert, but faun can be probably aliased to satyr, because Wikipedia says that:
 
The Romans identified satyrs with their native nature spirits, fauns. Eventually the distinction between the two was lost entirely.
 
I created a description for satyr based heavily on the description from Derpi
 
Short:
A creature that is mostly human from the waist up, and mostly bipedal animal from the waist down.
 
Detailed:
The character might have animal ears or other minor features that set them apart from full human upper bodies. Satyrs come from Greek mythology, Romans called them fauns.
For similar characters with more than two legs, use centaur instead.
 
Alias:
 
faun -> satyr
 
EDIT:
 
I think there should be a tag for all the species that are partly human but are not actually human. They should be all tagged with an umbrella tag humanoid. Those would be:
 
elf, satyr, centaur, mermaid and fairy
 
I already created the tag humanoid, now only all of the above should imply it. This will enable filtering all those part-human characters easily with just one tag.

I can see that some of those above are done, so I will post those that are not done
 
poro - creatures from the game League of Legends
 
chuki - it’s a species of mouse-like rodents created by Roy Arashi (https://twitter.com/RoyArashi, https://www.furaffinity.net/user/roy/
 
furred dragon - this one is created, but implies “scalie”. I’m not sure how a creature without scales can be scalie. It contradicts the definition. It should imply only dragon and mammal or even just [email protected]
 
faun - all the details are above  
––  
and a new ones:
 
antelope
 
Description for antelope based on Wikipedia:  
Many species of even-toed ruminant indigenous to various regions in Africa and Eurasia. The term is used to describe all members of the family Bovidae that do not fall under the category of sheep, cattle, or goats.
 
impala - type of antelope  
cockroach  
fossa  
monitor lizard  
orca  
porcupine  
rhino  
tapir  
tasmanian devil  
walrus
 
some Pokemons:
 
buizel  
gengar  
pansear  
politoed  
totodile
 
––  
EDIT: Update
 
chinchilla  
monkey  
seal  
whale
 
EDIT 2:
 
giant anteater  
silky anteater  
tamandua
 
anteater - those 3 above should all imply this one (see Wikipedia)
 
EDIT 3:
 
border collie - a dog breed

Creatures from this:  

 
cockatrice  
fae dragon  
lindworm  
sea serpent  
amphithere
 
 
––  
Also there is the term "**drake**" which can mean either wingless dragon or just a synonym to dragon, and there is winged creature type from MTG called that, and also winged creature from Guild Wars called that, so maybe “drake” should be just aliased to “dragon” and wingless dragon should be used for, well, wingless dragons?  
––  
the tag quetzalcoatl is set as species right now but there is a deity with this name. On e621 there is species tag that is just “couatl” which is the name of a species from D&D, and on e621 quetzalcoatl is set as character tag,
 
full
 
On e621 there is also species tag “feathered snake”:
 
full
 
And there is also coatl dragon which is it’s own species from the web browser game Flight Rising
 
To avoid confusion in my opinion it should be like that:
 
Quetzalcoatl - set as character tag  
short description: deity in Mesoamerican culture and literature whose name comes from the Nahuatl language and means “feathered serpent”.  
detailed description: for the species of feathered serpents see feathered serpent, for the species of feathered dragons from the game Flight Rising see coatl dragon (flight rising).
 
**Feathered serpent** - set as species tag  
short description: species of feathered serpents  
detailed description: for the deity from Mesoamerican culture see quetzalcoatl, for the species of serpent-like feathered dragons from the game Flight Rising see coatl dragon (flight rising).
 
**Coatl dragon (flight rising)** - set as species tag  
short description: serpent-like dragon species from the game Flight Rising.  
detailed description: for the deity from Mesoamerican culture see quetzalcoatl, for the species of feathered serpents see feathered serpent.
 
Alias:
 
coatl -> feathered serpent  
couatl -> feathered serpent  
quetzalcoatl (species) -> feathered serpent  
feathered snake -> feathered serpent
 
coatl dragon -> coatl dragon (flight rising)
 
lindwurm -> lindworm (“wurm” is German spelling)
 
chinese dragon -> eastern dragon  
lung dragon -> eastern dragon
 
Implication:
 
coatl dragon (flight rising) -> flight rising
 
feathered serpent -> feathers they don’t have to be visible, so this one not  
feathered serpent -> snake
 
sea serpent -> snake
 
coatl dragon (flight rising) -> dragon
 
wingless dragon -> dragon
 
––  
I have no idea about the one described on that chart as “salamander” as salamander is just a type of real amphibians…
 
EDIT:
 
Also this species:
 
howler monkey
 
implication:
 
howler monkey -> monkey
 
EDIT 2:
 
asari - alien humanoidal species from mass effect
Anonymous #B1D2
I noticed >>1456 was tagged “catgirl”. Is this the correct term to tag them even if they may not be cats?

european polecat or common ferret - those are two names for the same species (Mustela putorius), on Wikipedia it’s under european polecat but on e621 its under common ferret. I don’t know which one should be used, but if its decided then the other should be alised into it.
