Just recently I’ve been pondering over a certain question, that being how one might classify the creatures of Thra?
On Earth we’ve created classes for our planet’s many species, terms such as Reptile, Mammal and Avian to name a few.
Now of course I don’t doubt that certain creatures on Thra could be placed in such groupings, however.. what about those that can’t? Like a Nebrie for instance, how do you suppose you’d classify such a beast? As an amphibian because of it’s semi-aquatic lifestyle? or as an insect for it’s grublike appearance. Or maybe.. neither.
I guess what I’m getting at here is that to be able to correctly label these things someone might need to come up with a few new classes? To really know said individual would most likely have to study each species with great detail, examining every aspect of its biology, comparing it to what humans know of the animals they share their planet with today.
None the less, just a curious idea I thought I’d share~
