This is a sample of animal taxonomic ranks, more specifically, it is Spotted Hyena Taxonomic Rank. Taxonomic rank is the relative position of a group of organisms (a taxon) in a taxonomic hierarchy in biological categorization. Taxonomic ranks include species, genus, family, order, class, phylum, kingdom, domain, and so on. Less generic categories, that is, more particular descriptions of living forms, are subsumed under a certain rank. Above it, each rank is subdivided into more generic categories of creatures and groups of organisms that are connected to one another by the inheritance of characteristics or features from common ancestors and it is typically not essential to describe ranks other than these first two in order to identify a specific organism.
