Once a species is studied, these type of questions should be relatively easy to answer, but not all of them are. In fact, usually researchers working with a species know all about it, but do not know any proper channel to share this information in a binary computer(&parsing)-friendly format. We encountered problems when looking for simple phenotypic information about some species. Thus we developed Traitpedia, a collaborative repository to gather many traits for an increasing number of species (currently 675 species; last updated on 24th April 2019).
You can query the entry of any species in the Traitpedia by using as query its TaxID, Species name or Common name.
