# Animals we know have a bigger name.

We all know the name of these animals: pigs, Pigeon, Chicken, Coyote, Dove, Sloth bear, Orangutan, but did you know this simple name has a bigger name? Let's start with the pig. The pig scientific name isn't that big it's just sus. No not the Among us game where you call someone sus. It's just sus. Pigeon: Columbidae. Chicken: Gallus gallus domesticus. Coyote: Canis latrans. Dove: Columbidae(Same as Pigeon). Sloth bear: Melursus ursinus. The Orangutan name is my favorite it is called: Pongo X. You may say "but what about a human Scientific name?" Well here is the human scientific name:.................................................................................................................................................................................................... Homo sapiens.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
