Note 1: Please link any further additions to the proper Latin names, like this: [[Carassius auratus|Goldfish]]- this will link us to the way non-domesticated animal species are handled. Popular names can be put on a redirect, eg goldfish. OTOH, try to alphabetise this list according to popular names
