Thanks for the notification! I was unaware that a) I knew its identity (I thought there could be other species; I am in no shape or form an expert on this creature) and b) that I did not provide that scientific name. But now it's all settled, thank you!

Hi there. Since you know the identity of your organism, please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. This allows the spotting to fully enter the database and become complete, letting groups and individuals use the data and find your spotting. It also takes the spotting off the "unidentified" list. Thank you!

Here's a great Project Noah blog entry that explains the spotting process:

Thank you KatCuff and Karen! This giraffe was begging to be photographed, he didn't move that glance for around a whole minute while my camera struggled to focus in macro mode! :)
