Many people, especially those with a biology, genetics, or zoology background, have questions about the original created kinds of land animals that went on the Ark during the Flood. How many kinds were there? What defines a kind? How have these kinds speciated to all the species we have today? Well, you can get in-depth answers to all these questions, and more, with a brand-new resource, Extant Ark Kinds: Series 1 volumes 1 and 2.

These books contain a collection of the thoroughly researched and peer-reviewed Answers Research Journal technical papers. These papers give both the methodology and rationale behind the monumental project of determining the Ark kinds (which determined there were probably fewer than 2,000 land-dwelling, air-breathing kinds that went on the Ark, and that’s what we present in an exhibit at the Ark Encounter).

The first volume applies baraminology (the study of created kinds) to the extant (still living) mammalian and avian (bird) kinds, while the second volume looks at the extant amphibian and reptile kinds. And each book is filled with high-quality photographs.

You can order these two volumes, separately or together, from

If you would like to discover more about the Ark kinds at a more layman level, check out Dr. Jean Lightner’s DVD Determining the Ark Kinds or the book, for ages eight and up, How Many Animals Were on the Ark? These two resources are available as a combo pack from our online store.
