Alpine Ibex[edit]

Well, I am not that kind of expert in Ibex . I did the pictures at the “Hellabrunn Tierpark” (Zoo of Munich) and the booklet say “Alpensteinbock” and this is German for “Capra ibex ibex”. If something is not correct, I am not to blame. Wath do you think?

I have only a little “Das Lexikon der Tierwelt” and I had a look at the “”Nubische Steinbock”. There I can only read: “see Alpensteinbock” and in that place it say only that the Nubische Steinbock has littler horns and “black and white legs”. Pardon my bad english, it is about 30 years that I don’t write this language. Cheers up!

Dann habe ich Deine Fotos angeguckt und festgestellt, dass Du in Wikipedia (Germany) präsent bist. Also Du bist Deutscher und kannst also Deutsch … wozu habe ich mich mit Englisch abgerackert? Ciao --Nino Barbieri 09:01, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Oh, sorry.Deutsch is natürlich einfacher. In München gibts sowohl Alpensteinböcke, als auch Nubische Steinböcke. Das ist sicher ein Nubischer Steinbock (C. i nubiana). (Die sind hinten bei den Pinguinen und da sind auch Mantelpaviane mit im Gehege drin.)--Altaileopard 21:14, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Altaileopard!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

buff crested bustard[edit]

Bustard-photo

Hi, Ltshears. Are you shure, that this photo is a red crested bustard (E. ruficrista)? All literature I know, says, that ruficrista has no black neck-line as it is seen for example in the black-bellied bustard (Lissotis melanogaster). If I don´t answer, please make a notice on my talk page. Thank you very much.--Altaileopard (talk) 18:36, 2 July 2010 (UTC) Okay, I think I got it. It is probably the species gindiana, which is sometimes considered to be conspecific.--Altaileopard (talk) 18:41, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

please read here http://www.oaklandzoo.org/animals/birds/buff-crested-bustard/ ... The male of this species does have a black stripe down the front the neck.. yes i am sure, i took this photo at the cincinnati zoo and the sign on the exhibit said it was this species.. from what i can tell this is the only species of bustard that the cincinnati zoo has. i always take a photo of the zoo sign in front of the exhibit, it said buff crested bustard , species name Eupodotis ruficrista, unless they have at some point renamed that species i am not sure, but that was what the sign said..From what i can tell, it is a subspecies of E. ruficrista..I looked up the 2 species on isis species holdings and cincinnati zoo only shows as having the Lophotis ruficrista and not the Lophotis gindiana.so not sure why the the sign refered to it as buff crested. --Ltshears (talk) 19:57, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your kind and informative answer, but I think you may have not recognized my second comment:
Lophotis.png
"Okay, I think I got it. It is probably the species gindiana, which is sometimes considered to be conspecific."
The buff-crested bustard (Eupodotis gindiana) was (is) sometimes included in the red-crested bustard (Eupodotis ruficistra). In this case Eupodotis ruficistra gindiana would be the full name and the description of the zoo is right. But today both are usually believed to represent two different species. (E. gindiana and E. ruficistra and the remaining E. ruficistra have no neck stripe. I am not a bustard-specialist and therefore I was a bit confused. Sorry for your effort. PS: here is a map of the genus Eupodotis (=Lophotis).--Altaileopard (talk) 07:38, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
Thank You.. I will leave it listed as is i suppose since the species i believe is red crested.. I did come across other images online of this species with the line down the neck. and from what i am reading, males have the stripe, females do not? thanks again --74.138.54.70 05:04, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
Ähhh..... I hope I didn´t confuse you and I also hope you did not missunderstood me. I try to make it easy! The common name is in any case buff-crested bustard, but more important is the classification and the scientific name. And there are two possibilities:
1.)It is a subspecies of the red crested bustard (E. ruficistra): Then E. ruficistra gindiana would be the right name for your animal
2.)It is a seperate species. In this case E. gindiana would be the right name.
As it is treated as a seperate species in Wikipedia (and in Josep del Hoyo, Andrew Elliot, Jordi Sargatal: Handbook of the Birds of the World. Volume 3, Hoatzin to Auks), I would recomend the second possibilty for the sorting in commons.
So I think we should place it in the Category:Eupodotis gindiana. --Altaileopard (talk) 08:48, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Wild boar Map has some errors[edit]

Ireland and Scotland should definately be included.

This map File:Sus scrofa range map.jpg of the historic range of the Wild boar appears to have some errors in it. I does not include either Scotland or Ireland, where there where definitely native Wild Boar populations. I believe they still exist in Scotland, but are currently extinct in Ireland (but that doesn't matter for this map, as it is about the historic range of the species). Since you created it I thought you would be able to alter it, thanks. --86.42.213.43 00:48, 16 November 2010 (UTC) User:Hibernian

Hi Hibernian. I will definitely check historic occurences of Sus scorfa in Scotland and Ireland. --Altaileopard (talk) 09:51, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi Altaileopard, have you made any progress on this? I can definitely assure you that Wild Boar lived wild in Ireland and Scotland since the Stone Age. For instance Wild Boar hunting occurs in many ancient legends from the Celtic Iron Age period (~2,500 years ago). Check the Mythology, religion, history and fiction section of the Wild Boar article, although it contains only a very brief overview of the subject, Wild Boars are mentioned in almost every Irish Myth from the Iron age and Middle ages, that I've read. It was a very common feature of Irish culture for millennia, which is presumably why they have now been hunted to extinction. People have tried to reintroduce them, but the Irish government has declared them to be a pest to agriculture, so it is illegal to release them and all that are found are shot (http://www.biodiversityireland.ie/wild-boar-in-ireland/). The situation is similar in Scotland (http://www.treesforlife.org.uk/forest/species/wildboar.html). Anyway, I have updated the map to include Ireland and Scotland and have it on my computer (I also cleaned up some other areas of the map, such as including Luxemburg, which was left blank, etc), but I don't know how to upload it. I know how to upload pictures normally, but I don't know how to "update" an already existing picture. I'd appreciate if you could contact me on my Wikipedia user talk page about this, as I very rarely check the Commons, thanks. --86.42.210.43 19:22, 28 December 2010 (UTC) User:Hibernian

Ok I've gone ahead and uploaded an updated version. --Hibernian (talk) 17:45, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
Hi Hiberinan. Sorry for not replying, but I was in a hurry when I read the message before the last one. So I missed the last sentence and did not come back to you. Thank you very much for uploading a new file.--Altaileopard (talk) 11:11, 17 April 2011 (UTC)


Wild boar in the Phillippines[edit]

Hi Altaileopard, I don't know if this is the proper way to post a comment for you as this is the first time I've tried. Anyway, I just wanted to note that your map doesn't show there being any wild boars in the Philippines. I can guarantee that wild pigs are still found throughout the Philippines pretty much everywhere there is natural forest. The animals are heavily hunted and several of the endemic species are now threated or endangered. Here is one example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visayan_Warty_Pig Maybe you could update your map to reflect the presence of wild boars in the Philippines? Thanks!

Hi. There are wild pigs on the Phillippines, however they belong to different species like Sus philippensis ect. They should not be included in a map regarding Sus scrofa. Cheers,--Altaileopard (talk) 21:40, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

File:Germans collage.jpg[edit]

Hi. You changed Otto Hahn to Jürgen Klinsmann on this picture. To use a picture of a sportsperson is OK I tinhk - but why Klinsmann? And why such a bad image? There are much more legendary sportspersons, so Franz Beckenbauer, Wolfgang Graf Berghe von Trips, Gottfried von Cramm, Birgit Fischer, Steffi Graf, Sepp Herberger, Reiner Klimke, Emanuel Lasker, Rosi Mittermaier, Uwe Seeler and most of all Fritz Walter and Max Schmeling. Fischer, Graf and Mittermaier also would be as Females do something for the much less Females on the picture. So it would be great, if you could change here to an other person. Marcus Cyron (talk) 19:12, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

There is probably no particular reason for Klinsmann, but he was an important player and also coach in the german national sport football. He also looks quite german in my opinion. Moreover, I would use a colored image, since there are already a lot of black and white images in the picture. Since there are already two female models to represent "modern germans", I think a male sportsman is reasonable. I also like the fact, that he wears the trikot, so that you can see, it is actually a fotballer. I think the quality of the image is not very good, but okay. In general, I think the picture for english people is a good balanced example of a mixture of people. The germans looked a bit grey, compared to that.

Please e-mail at ns@nathist.dk. If you prefer to write in German, it is fine. I read German well.

Also do you have a version of the file that is suitable for print?

Looking forward to your reply.

Best

Nina Editor of Natur og Museum.
