View Full Version : Animal Question

07-17-2011, 09:24 PM
I am in a bit of a hole right now and I really think it is adding to my writer's block if not causing it entirely....lol.

My current (novel) manuscript deals with reincarnations of certain Egyptian Gods. I want to incorporate each God's animal counterpart into the present incarnation. Problem is...I don't know some of the particulars of the animals attributes.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to find out some of the technical aspects of certain animals (sight, smell, hearing, etc)?
I thought about going to the local vet office, but I thought I would try some groups first. Vets are busy enough than taking time out to answer these kinds of questions...lol.

Thanks in advance!

What kind of animals are you looking for?

07-17-2011, 11:24 PM
Dogs, cats, reptiles (crocs and snakes) and cows.

It would seem to me that a good place to start for those kinds of basics would be wikipedia.

And remember that dogs and jackals aren't the same critter. ;)

I would also suggest that you need to decide whether to use the real attributes or the attributes as ancient Egyptians understood them
