While these are mammals, because they are pets, they belong in the pet category.

http://www.projectnoah.org/faq
Although we technically do accept pet photos, it is not our focus. The reason why we created a pet category is because many users share pet photos when they are getting familiar with our website or experimenting with our mobile apps and we wanted to give our users some time to get comfortable and see what our community is all about. Once settled in, we ask that you focus your sights and your cameras on true wildlife. When submitting photos of zoo animals, we ask that you make it clear in your notes. Zoos play a key role in exposing us to a wide variety of plants and animals and many zoos are instrumental in rehabilitating injured animals and protecting endangered species. Sadly, as more species go extinct in the wild, zoos are becoming a last refuge for many plants and animals and it’s important to highlight those efforts and bring awareness to those species. Whilst we do welcome captive animals in zoos and aquariums, our aim is to share wildlife spottings in as natural circumstances as possible, which is why we request that you do not post photographs of animals being used purely for the purpose of entertainment such as dolphins and whales in marine parks and circus animals.
