I had a feeling this wouldn't be suitable for Wikifur. :) My reasoning is that, animals being so important to the fandom, it's appropriate to cover the science of how they change over time, and how they came to be as they are today. Evolution puts limits on exactly what animal forms are naturally possible at a point in time, so it's also a handy guide for anyone who wants, for example, to simulate natural realism.

The usual policy on topics like this is that just because it's an animal related topic doesn't automatically qualify it for a WikiFur article. If the information it would include is substantially the same as one would find on non-furry sources, such as Wikipedia, then it probably shouldn't have an article here. If there are parts, aspects or angles of the topic that are unique to or relate specifically to furrydom, then it's okay to have an article that includes those along with enough non-furry information to provide context. Does that answer your question? --mwalimu 20:53, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
What mwalimu said. It's not that we don't care about evolution, just that it's not specifically a furry topic. There's no point in us maintaining a separate page if there is nothing in particular that furry fans can add. If any pages linked to it (which they don't), then we could just direct the users to Wikipedia's article, which is always going to be better. --GreenReaper(talk) 22:51, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
