Animals, Page 2

A collection of photos and picture galleries of various animals – high quality and high detail photographs of birds, cats, dogs, insects, spiders and anything else that can move and breathe. What is animal? It is essentially a living organism which feeds on organic matter. It usually has specialized sense organs such as eyes and ears and a nervous system with which it is able to respond rapidly to stimuli from its surrounding, external environment. The word animal is derived from the latin ‘anima’ which means soul or breath, so one could also argue that any animal must also have a ‘soul’ of some kind.
