I need to make a huge list of possible traits for all pet types. So if you can help me in coming up with physical and decorative traits for the more common pet types, thatd be appreciated.
Example:
Cat
Physical
Feline Paw (hand)
Feline Eyes (eyes)
Teeth (face)
Decorative
Tail (tail) Long tail, Short tail ,Stub tail ,Crooked tail
Whiskers (face) Tiny whiskers, Short whiskers, Long whiskers, Droopy whiskers, Curly whiskers, White whiskers, Grey Whiskers, Black whiskers
Coat Pattern (body) Striped, Spotted, Mottled, Calico, Tabby, Mitted
Coat Color (body) Brown, Black, White, Orange, Gray, Cream, Golden, Dark-brown, Light-brown, Silver
Hair Length (body) Short haired, Long haired, Hairless, Wirehaired, Scraggly haired, Thick haired

Mockingbird
Physical
Avian Claw (hand)
Avian Eyes (eyes)
Beak (face)
Avian Wings
Decorative
FeatherColor: Brown, Grey, White, Silver
FeatherPattern: Speckled, Mottled, Plain, ark-grey
WingSize: Small-winged
Beak: Pointy-beaked


Try to stick to all "real" possible alternatives, especially if the pet exists irl. Also, physical traits can overlap with pets from the same type of egg. Most of this for Cat, would be the same for Leopard etc. I usually just adapt where necessary to make it fit that particular type of feline.
See http://silvanosrosvalin.googlepages.com/petinformation for pet types.
I also use wikipedia a lot for animal info.


Pet types I still need:
Slimy green (now done)
Rich brown (other than cat) (now done)
Red speckled (now done)
Foggy grey
Splotched yellow
Orange fuzzy
Orange moss covered
Coral
Sofy fuzzy

If you want to help, list which youre going to do in a reply below so that others can pick something else. You can also post your output here.

First attempt:

Slimy Green

hole (ears) (that sounds funny)
reptilian eyes (eyes)
gills (face)
Feet: webbed (frog), clawed (chameleon, toad(?)), finned (salamander, newt), unformed (tadpole), glob-toed (I don't know the word, it's for frogs, toads, salamanders, newts with the round toes)
Eyes: reptilian, inset, outset (bulging)
Tongue: globbed, long, short
Tail (tadpole, newt, chameleon, salamander): stubby, short, long, muscular (as for chameleon?)
Body: lithe, sinuous, fat (toad), finned (you can get some pretty insane salamanders/newts), slow (not quite the word, but as for a cold-blooded reptile who is still warming up)
Body pattern: <colour>-striped, <colour>-spotted, brightly-coloured, <colour>-coloured, mottled, speckled
(all the reptiles can take just about any colour/pattern)
Body texture: scaly, slimy, warty, smooth, wet
