Many thanks for this!

I had thought a few times it would eventually come in very handy to have compilations like the one you made, at least for the most loved species.

Stickied :)

 :o  This is exactly what I've been looking for.  I hope someday I will able to put the info to good use!
There was a young lass from Madras
Who had a magnificent ass
It was not round and pink
as you might think
But had ears and a tail, and ate grass.
