I'm not 100% percent sure, but could XML be more appropiate to model
this kind of info

       <animal id="001"></animal>
	<name>Little Santa's Helper</name>
			<attribute name="height" unit="cm">100</height>		</attribute>	
			<attribute name="speed" unit="km/h"/>

Of course, the schema could be organized around species, breed, etc..
not individual animals. XML gives you more power to deal with
semi-structured info, imo.

Just trying to think outside the box :)
