    In curiosity, does anyone on Baldo’s block on a Jaguar (the car, not the wild cat)?

    Probably not.

    The teacher is at fault. Both she and Baldo are using the word ‘family’ in a specific and restricted sense, just not the same one. As teacher and questioner she should have made her meaning clearer. This is why we have terms like ‘genus’ and ‘species’ etc.

    But the taxonomic rank right above genus IS “family”! She has given the genus and species and is asking for the taxonomic Family. What other word should she use when the correct word is Family?

    (The answer, by the way, is Family Felidae)

    Felidae, or in common parlance, the cat family.

    Genus and species were dangerous for my H.S. biology teacher – he’d sidetrack himself into discussing Roadrunner cartoons. My favorite name joke from the series was when the Coyote tried to catch the Roadrunner with a Burmese tiger trap, and caught a Burmese tiger (Surprisius surprisius).

    Shouldn’t it be (Surprisius Tigerus) instead?

    I’ll bet that Gracie could answer that question.

    I checked with Gracie. It is Panthera tigris. The Burmese and Balinese subspecies are extinct, the Sumatran is endangered, Bengal is threatened, and even the Siberian` needs help.

    The teacher is at fault….

    Why? The students should know what “family” means in the context of the class.
