The process of classification led to the creation of scientific names of the animals.

Certain rules have to be followed to write the scientific names of animals:

  • The name of the genus begins with a capital letter.
  • The name of the species begins with a small letter.
  • When printed, the scientific name is given in italics.
  • When written by hand, the genus name and the species name have to be underlined separately.
