Animals were the creatures of Arda.The Eldar named them "Kelvar" or "lifeforms that move" in contrast to the "Olvar" or "lifeforms that do not move" (such as plants and fungi).The Eldarin Loremasters had categorised the Kelvar into a number of orders including Ramacelvar (bats and birds), Eärcelvar (water beasts), Potili (insects and spiders), Rávatser (amphibians and reptiles), Lausimatwar (Q."Vegetarians"), Oromeriannar (riding and draft animals) and lama raustear (Q."Predators") each order was again divided into various sub-orders and the later Loremasters, such as the learned Númenóreans and their students adapted and modified the High-Eldarin "tengwesta" ("System").The unnatural abominations of Morgoth, the Ulundur usually were not incorporated into this Tengwesta (though the Loremasters sometimes had contentious debates if a beast was a natural creature or rather an abomination).
