Top Level HeadingQuestions
General Species (We provided the common and scientific name of the species.) 
Taxonomy post-Rodentia (suborder, family, subfamily, genus) 
What does it eat? General group: carnivore, herbivore, omnivore 
How does it eat? (hunter, ambush predator, scavenger, herbivore) 
Specifically, what does it eat, and indicate amount of force needed. e.g., nuts, need large forces; or insects, small forces needed; or large mammals, small forces needed but need tearing action 
Does it store food or eat its food immediately? 
Does it eat continuously or gorge occasionally? 
What eats it? Relative size of predators (smaller, larger, same) 
How does the predator hunt it? (aerial, stalker/sit and wait, surface chaser, can descend to burrow, can climb trees) 
Does the type of predator shift as this species ages/matures? 
Temporal Activity What time of day is it active? Time of year? Does it hibernate? 
Social Is it social or solitary? If social, does it live with family groups or groups of non-relatives? (This may indicate the amount of aggressive interactions it engages in regularly.) 
Location What is its biogeographic range? 
Does it migrate? If so, to where and when? 
Movement Typically, is it moving quickly or slowly? 
Does it have any movements that might require power/force, and if so, what movements? 
Reproduction Does it have one or multiple reproductive episodes in its life? 
What is the typical clutch size; i.e., how many babies per reproductive episode? 
Other Any other special adaptations?
