Time to start the COUNTDOWN again for the next newests episodes coming on in July. The first episode coming on is "The Great Froggyback Ride". Got it ? And did you hear ? We might have a new Administrator on the Wild Kratts Wiki. His name is German Kaiserreich.
Yes there is. Don't say things like this on them."This category is for animal characters who are pecorans". Because this category should be only for pecoran species not for the Wild Kratts Animal Friends that are pecorans. How many times do I have to tell you ? The Wild Kratts Animal Friends should NOT be put on the same categories as the Real Life Species.
Ok, I see what you mean on the 1st part, I was actually going to change "animal characters" to "animals". On the other half of that note, some of the animal characters were already in those categories during the time I was editing the categories. I'm guessing that they should be moved to their own categories.
On another note, should the last sentence for each animal category be "This category is for animals that are [animal-type].", or "This category contains all [animal-type] that have appeared on Wild Kratts."?
I already removed them from those categories. Now they just need their own categories. Just like you said. And next time when you make a new category make sure you save it to animals instead of characters.
It wasn't easy, but I eventually discovered it through various methods: by looking through several natural and conservation sites such as inaturalist.org, I eventually (after about several years) figured out that the name for mantises in the genus Liturgusa (still working out exactly what that word translates to though) were lichen mantises; while the species' specific name krattorum means "Kratt's" ("-orum" being a suffex [like "-us"] for names). As a slight note, this common (or vernacular) name is mostly based on the translations of the scientific name and, as far as I can figure out, the closest I can find to this species' common name wiki-wise (scientists don't even know the official common name for this species) and for the time being is regarded as such.
For the Amazin' Amazon Adventure. It's coming on April 20, in two weeks. So it is time to start the COUNTDOWN for it. So there are two things I want to ask you about it. When the COUNTDOWN time is up for the episode don't forget to make it say "Amazin' Amazon Adventure has aired." Because you didn't do that with the In Search of the Easter Bunny episode. And which picture do you think should be used for the COUNTDOWN ?
The other one is not the profile picture of the episode, but I think it looks more exciting. What do you think ?
You know I think it's a golden-tailed saphire too. Especially since they live in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela. All of which are a part of the Amazon Rainforest. So it has to be a golden-tailed saphire. Also I noticed the information you added on the episode page. About both the Scarlet Macaw and Bull Shark are going to appear in the episode. And that This will be the 1st episode to officially show an adult black jaguar. You got that from the promo didn't you ?
I actually have a better adult black jaguar picture from the Monkey Mayhem online game. I can add it as soon as I can. Also, do you think the policy said anything about adding information from promos for upcoming episodes?
Well no I guess it doesn't. So I guess it's not against the rules the you added that new information about the new episode. And about the black jaguar picture you added. It's not bad, but it could be more clearer. So we should try to get a better picture from the Amazin' Amazon Adventure. If we can.
Once the episode airs, I can try go get a good image from there. As a minor question, can I also supply the animated and live action animal image for when their pages are made, or did Gonna Go Wild Wild Kratts want to supply the Giant Otter images himself?
When did they show the Creepy Creatures! one hour special in two parts ? I want to know. And did you find out what species of ant it is yet ? And I saw the new animation picture of the Northern House Mosquito. It's not bad.
1. It's true that several of the Wild Kratt specials like "A Creature Christmas", "Creatures of the Deep Sea", and "Creepy Creatures!" were shown as specials on many channels like PBS Kids. However, some channels like TVOKids split them into 2 parts just like "Back in Creature Time". They even have transcripts for both parts (click the following parts for the links: Part 1Part 2). I managed to see the 2nd part (when it was available to see at the time) and saw several animals in the live action version that didn't appear in the original special (more will be listed as soon as I can).
2. The species of the Chinese ant is about to be determined (I should work on that blog about determining unconfirmed species on the show).
I was just about to (sorry for the delay, I was busy with other things and had some minor health issues recently).
When I checked the locations of the mosquito species, it said (as stated on the Northern House Mosquito page) "North of the 39th parallel north in the US, only common house mosquitos (C. pipens) are present, whereas south of the 36th parallel north, only southern house mosquitos (C. quinquefasciatus) are present." (south of the 36th parallel north included the Everglades). Also, I plan to have a picture of the common house mosquito (even though the animated picture for the southern house mosquito looks more like real life one of the common house mosquito).
On a minor related note, not that I'm complaining about it, why is the word "common" removed from the names of several species pages? I can understand your reasons why, but I also know that the words in animal names help distinguish some specific species from other animals (example: if the Common Starfish page was simply labled as Starfish, most people would believe that the page could reffer to any of the many species of starfish in the world [at least the way I see it])
Good you better get a different animation picture because they both can't have the same one. I mean it's like the Northern House Mosquito and the Southern House Mosquito are the same species. And the reason I get ride of the word "common" on species pages is because I don't like it and it's the way the kratt brothers call them on their show. So we should call them that on here too.
About this picture I found that you took. Of a chinses ant. Is there really such a thing ? And did you hear the news ? The next newest wild kratts episode is coming on at March 30th this year. It's called In Search of the Easter Bunny.
There is, I called it that because it’s an ant from China. I don’t exactly know which species it is yet (I’ll inform you when I do), but I do know that they make their nests in trees, likely acrobat ants in the genus Crematogaster. I also was considering posting a blog to distinguish and confirm the species, subspecies, and breeds of animals that appear on the show but haven’t been confirmed which one they are, such as a larva or an egg that has appeared by themselves without an adult stage shown (example: post a photo of the animal on the blog with the name of the episode it was taken from and location the episode took place). Also, thanks for the tip on the new episode.
I knew that ant species appeared in the Pangolin Rescue episode. And I think it's a great idea to create a blog to confirm an unknown species that appeared in an episode. And your most welcome about being informed about the newest episode.
