Animal Kingdom

Taxonomic kingdom comprising all living or extinct animals. All animals on earth are found in the animal Kingdom taxonomic classification. Animals are divided into various subcategories to further define them, namely division, class, order, family, genus and species. Each classification matches similar organisms related physically, anatomically or behaviourally in some way. The similarities are closer as you move down the divisions, classes etc until unique species are defined in their own right.
