I think this should be renamed because we need simple names because their some people out there who might not what "Feline" means.

@Baby Luigi: "Avian reptiles"? What? Do you even know what you're talking about? Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Dinosaurs aren't even reptiles. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Um, yes they are definitely reptiles. You're confusing "lizards" with "reptiles" (dinosaurs are NOT lizards). Wikipedia: "Although the word dinosaur means "terrible lizard", the name is somewhat misleading, as dinosaurs are not lizards. Instead, they represent a separate group of reptiles"

Reptilia is actually a paraphyletic group that excludes bird but includes dinosaurs - but then Dinosauria itself does include Aves, meaning birds are dinosaurs, and dinos are reptiles, but birds aren't reptiles. It's pretty screwy, and most scientists actually avoid paraphyletic groupings for that reason (and other, more sciency reasons, but I'll skip those details), preferring to stick to monophyletic groups like Sauropsida ("lizard faces", which doesn't exclude birds from the otherwise reptilian group). Here's a picture I made for a class last year that shows all the relevant groupings. (Squamata is where the lizards and snakes are, btw; Testudines is turtles, but their exact placement is still up for debate.) - Walkazo 22:27, 5 September 2013 (EDT)
Very interesting. Who'd knew I would know a bit about bird taxonomy in a Mario encyclopedia? Thanks for the education. Birds fascinate me. I wish I could study birds all day, especially in the field.
