PostSubject: 100 species challenge - need your help! :)   Tue May 07, 2013 4:25 pm

A while ago there was an art challenge going around DeviantArt called "100 species challenge". The aim was to draw a picture (in any technique) of each of the 100 animal species mentioned on a list - there were at least two variants of that list, each had a slightly different species.

I've decided to create such list from scratch and fulfill the challenge according to this version. And this is the part where I'm asking you for help! Very Happy
I'd like to hear your suggestions of species I should draw. But I have a few requirements:
- I want to focus on vertebrates. Therefore I'll divide the list into four equal parts, 25 species each.
- Give your suggestions in this topic - English name (if it exists) of the species (or a subspecies if you chose so) as well as it's scientific name (usually deriving from Latin/Greek) in brackets -> "()" - this way it'll be much easier for me to find photos of the animal.
- And please, try to make it as varied as possible - the greater variety, the better! cheers
EDIT: - Only existing species and historically extinct, no prehistoric ones, please.

I'll edit the list gradually.

If someone else would like to use this list to fulfill this challenge - go ahead! :)

I will suggest more but I really was expecting more contributions too.
I think it is great from Magda to put a STS participation on her project.
If anyones wants to suggest but doesn't know the species name I can easily edit posts and add the information. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Here are a few of my choices, hope they work for you. Very Happy
Chrysocyon brachyurus- Maned wolf
Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep- Ovis canadensis Canadensis
Dendrobates tinctorius- dyeing poison frog

Macropus rufogriseus- red-necked wallaby

Note: I'm not entirely sure if those are completely correct scientific names for them, I got those from the internet so if someone can double check them that would be great.

Very interesting! However I think it's a pity the list not include molluscs, they are so colorful and interesting.
My suggestion for a fish would be Macropinna microstoma - it's a crazy thing :)
Mammal - Moon Bear - Ursus thibetanus
Marsupial mammal - Goodfellow Tree Kangaroo - Dendrolagus goodfellowi
Birds ( it's hard to choose only one)- Wall creeper- (Tichodroma muraria)
and Bearded Tit (Panurus biarmicus)
and maybe one more, just more exotic- Atlantic royal flycatcher (Onychorhynchus swainsoni)
Amphibian - Cave salamander (Proteus anguinus)

Very Happy It's nice play, can't wait to see your drawings Magda bounce

Thanks everyone! Very Happy

cattlecollector - since you gave only a genus names for Kookaburra and Garter snake, I chose the exact species myself :)

Ana - maybe I'll draw some non-vertebrates after I complete this list Wink

I'll start drawing as soon as the list is complete, and I'll be posting finished drawings here.

Only 3 slots for mammals are left - I'll write there the next first 3 mammal species, keep that in mind, please.

You still need some more fish :) I think these would be nice:

- Giant oarfish (also called the king of herrings drunken Regalecus glesne)
-Angler fish, for example Bufoceratias wedli
-Pelican eel Eurypharynx pelecanoides
-Atlantic sailfish, Istiophorus albicans
-and maybe something I wouldn't know how to draw indeed: Psychodelic frogfish Histiophryne psychedelica
And one amphibian too if you still need some :)
-Blessed poison frog (Ranitomeya benedicta)-especially if you would use colors in your drawings too Very Happy

Oh I see you still need some birds Very Happy I think these would be nice:
-Kakapo (Strigops habroptila)
-Agami heron (Agamia agami)
-Southern cassowary (Casuarius casuarius)

As for the mammals, I think, because you like unicorns you may need animal which is connected with the myth of unicorns: the Narwhal (Monodon monoceros) :)

You have no primates on this list, if you want one then maybe draw Silky sifaka (Propithecus candidus)?
And I think at least one owl would be necessary, for example: Sulawesi golden owl (Tyto inexspectata)
And penguins, they are so lovely, maybe Adélie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae)
plus something very adorable: Andean cock-of-the-rock (Rupicola peruvianus)
also, maybe something like King Eider (Somateria spectabilis, praktejder)

Two more fish: Rabbitfish (Chimaera monstrosa) and Lookdown (Selene vomer)

Something from reptiles: Abronia (Abronia graminea)
Alligator snapping turtle (Macrochelys temminckii)
Galapagos marine iguana (Amblyrhynchus cristatus)

OK I write quite too many probably Embarassed I hope others will make suggestions too bounce
