I tried to do a search to see if anyone had defined it. You wouldn't believe the number of times "fids" is generally used :roflmao: it was easier to ask lmao

Would that make reptiles "rids"?

I'll let my old fart ball python Lazarus know. It'll give him an ego boost to hear he's considered fanged :laughing2:

A while back I used to think Fids was a scientific name for bird stuff, like avids.
But no, it just means feathered kids :p

I had initially thought the same and then tried to figure out if it was only used for certain species or what, and it never made sense :roflmao:

There used to be a doodah on the site that when you hovered over some words or abbreviations, a box pooped up with the "meaning". Like for PFLB (peach-face lovebird), and fids was one of those, which is how I knew what it was as I hadn't heard or seen the term before joining AA ;)

I really miss that it was super helpful and helped me to learn a lot of species abbreviations as well.

I think we may have lost it in one of the updates possibly. I'm not sure if that's why since I wasn't active for a few years and when I came back it had changed.

Yes at the end of 2019.
I don't think we can have it anymore.

That's a shame but it was lovely to have it while we did.
