Dear Colleagues:
     There has been an interesting discussion started on animals and their 
blood groups. I'm curious, are there any related to human blood groups? Do the 
animal blood groups have their own nomenclature? I would imagine that some 
animals do have human blood groups. As a kid I remember reading about how 
Harvey in merry old England did the first blood transfusions of sheep to 
humans. Sometimes it worked (matched blood groups), often it didn't. Take 
care...John
