WP:CETA capitalisation discussion[edit]

Prehensile Penis?[edit]

This unusual musculature should be described in some detail for all aquatic mammals, as a correct body positioning in the water (for successful copulation) may be more difficult to obtain.

Etymology section edit[edit]

According to Wiktionary, the term epithet, as used in biology, does not apply to the Animal Kingdom. It is appropriate for all other kingdoms but for animals the term 'specific name' should be used instead of 'specific epithet'. I have edited the section accordingly.Probing Mind (talk) 09:02, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Size at birth[edit]

'At birth both sexes are about the same size,...' I think the exclusion some numbers here make this sentence shallow in content.
