In response to the question regarding chromosome count for some animals:
You are speaking of chromosome pairs. Humans have 23 pairs or 46. By
the same logic, flies (Drosophila melanogaster, for example) have 8, evening
bats have 46, the same as humans, rinosceri have 84.
Other chromosome pair numbers are:
Silk Moth 56
Sea urchin 42
