Here is the top five sites. I am here to show you the websites with out-dated taxonomy. Do not be discouraged to browse them, but do not use them if you want to learn taxonomy. Use Taxonomy in Flux (TiF) instead. It might be advanced, but it gets the point across.

Warning: angry me up ahead...

I was looking up the diet of the Crested Guan when I stumbled upon this website..

http://www.globalspecies.org/

I thought "hey, I'm going to check out the Aves section...."

Lo and behold, look what I stumbled upon when I saw under the Ciconiiformes section.

Let's just say, this outdated taxonomy is from the early 90s. Yep. It's Sibley-Monroe. In fact, you can check it out here: no. 7, no. 8 and no. 9

For starters... WHY?

Why are you using TAXONOMY from the 90s?

How ignorant can you get?

Have you been living under a damn rock?

You are worse than Animal Diversity Web (ADW)!

Oh-ho-ho-ho... it gets even better...

Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) used to use this shoddy taxonomy, but it eventually updated.

Now why don't you update yours, Myers Enterprizes? Get with the program, for Chrissake!
