Format of species authority[edit]

The authority for many of these species should not be in parentheses. The page implies that the format has been set up so that all authorities are in parentheses and this should change. Parentheses around a species authority have an important meaning - essentially that the original author did not put them in the genus that is currently in use. --Aranae 06:59, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Fixed. Thanks!--Legionarius 19:22, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Spieces not in Florida[edit]

  • First The Red Wolf used to be in Florida and now they only live in the carolinas.
  • Coyotes don't live in Florida. The Range Map on the coyote page shows florida not red.67.175.231.147 03:31, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
The Red Wolf is a tough call since there has been a release of a pair on St. Vincent Island, Florida. Coyote do currently live throughout Florida in contrast to the range map at that article. Both of these are according Whitaker and Hamilton (1998) Mammals of the Eastern United States. --Aranae 04:05, 11 October 2007 (UTC)


Fox Squirrel?[edit]

The picture that is currently shown for the fox squirrel looks nothing like an actual Sherman fox squirrel (the only kind of fox squirrel found in florida). It is either a Grey Sqirrel with a reddish tint or some other species of fox squirrel. the sherman fox squirrel is larger, has a longer tail compared to its body and almost always has black on its face. It might be some other species of fox squirrel, but to me it looks like a grey squirrel, it even has the characteristic White outline on the tail! look at the picture above it of the grey squirrel, besides the reddish tint of the one labeled fox squirrel, is their any difference? fox squirrel there's a good example of a real sherman fox squirrel, it's completely different. Michael1115 (talk) 20:01, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

It's a Grey Squirrel. Fox squirrels have orange-ish belly fur (Physical Description), whereas Greys have white belly fur. The original uploader even identified it as a Grey. ShootingStar89 (talk) 18:30, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

I am not familiar with Adding photos to articles on Wikipedia, so could someone please help me out here? you can find plenty of decent images with a Google search, and the one we have now is very obviously the wrong sub-species of fox squirrel. Michael1115 (talk) 18:25, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

You bring up a valuable point. This is the wrong subspecies and subspecies of fox squirrels are often quite distinct in their appearance. The same problem arises for S. n. bachmani and several other subspecies. Unfortunately the images that turn up on an image search at google are rarely useable due to copyright. I encourage you to check out WP:Image use policy, and if you have a photo of your own or can find a copyright free image that you'd like to add to the project check out WP:Uploading images. --Aranae (talk) 18:40, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Beach mice "biggest conservation concern"?[edit]

This page lists them as Florida's biggest rodent conservation concern yet the page for the mouse mentions that "The mouse is of least concern to conservationists because it is abundant and widespread"

Florida Panther[edit]

The florida panther is not NT anymore. it is now CR. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ms. Stephens (talkcontribs) 18:24, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

We have it listed as CR at Florida panther, but there's no source for it there. When I go to the IUCN site for Puma concolor, they only mention coryi once and don't give the subspecies a conservation status. I'd say we should change it, but we don't have a reliable source which says what its status is. But we don't have a source to say that it's NT either. Do you know of a reliable source for Florida panther's conservation status?  SchreiberBike | ⌨  20:40, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
This field guide from Florida Natural Areas Inventory lists it as endangered, but they don't say what that is based on and it doesn't seem to claim to be an official status.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  20:48, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
