List of animals

Chinese_animals Marquez hometown rejects name change:
ARACATACA, Colombia — Life did not imitate art when this town where Gabriel Garcia Marquez was born and first heard the ghost stories that would inform the "magical realism" of his novels, rejected a proposal to change its name to honor him. Fewer than the required 7,400 voters showed up for a referendum, which had been pushed by the local government to rename the community as Aracataca-Macondo

Analytical Language of John Wilkins, Jorge Luis Borges describes "a certain Chinese encyclopedia," the Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge, in which it is written that animals are divided into:

1. those that belong to the Emperor,
2. embalmed ones,
3. those that are trained,
4. suckling pigs,
5. mermaids,
6. fabulous ones,
7. stray dogs,
8. those included in the present classification,
9. those that tremble as if they were mad,
10. innumerable ones,
11. those drawn with a very fine camelhair brush,
12. others,
13. those that have just broken a flower vase,
14. those that from a long way off look like flies.
