    Canine, Feline, Bovine etc

    We're having a bit of a brainstorming evening and have got onto the subject of animal families(?) or whatever you would call them. So far we have the following:

    Dogs = Canine
    Cats = Feline
    Cows = Bovine
    Sheep = Ovine
    Pigs = Porcine
    Bears = Ursine

    Anybody know any others? Also does anbody know what the proper name for these type of names are, i.e is it a classification or something like that?
