What is the Creation Orchard?

The following pages introduce a Baramin Taxonomy through the Natanzera Classification System with suggested Baramins from many different authors.

Animal Taxonomy and Classification

Includes both vertebrate and invertebrate animals. Animals are defined as: having eukaryotic cells (with a nucleus), heterotrophic ingestion (ingests food rather than producing it), and lacking cell walls (the cells can join together to form tissues, organs, and systems).

Plant Classification

Including flowering, conifer, ferns, and mosses. Plants are typically defined as multi-cellular organisms which lack locomotion and have eukaryotic cells, cell walls, and chloroplasts which allow for photosynthesis. It contains spore, cone, and flower producing organisms.

Fungus Classification

Fungus are spore producing items which include mushrooms, yeast, and molds. They do not produce their own energy through photosynthesis, but instead derive nutrients from the organic matter of plants and animals. They can be unicellular, multi-cellular, or even multi-nucleated.


Includes Algae, Protozoa, and Bacteria.

Prokaryote Classification

Prokaryotes do not contain a nucleus.
