Animal Diversity Web

  • Different types of content
  • Broken maps feature, can't restrict search to content type

Have you ever wondered what a snow leopard skull looks like? Or what the song of the white-fronted parrot sounds like? You can have those questions (plus a thousand more) answered by the Animal Diversity Web, a website presented by the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology. This website includes a large amount of information about species within the animal kingdom, and this information takes the form of text, photos, specimens (such as skulls), and animal sounds. Users can search the database by animal name; however, one cannot restrict one’s search to a specific content type (such as to search only the animal sounds). The website also contains some additional educational content such as a glossary and brief articles on topics such as scientific names. With so much content to explore, the Animal Diversity Web makes it easy to unleash the zoologist in all of us.
