How many 'species' on the ark?
Creationists claim that two each of every 'kind' were put on the ark. They do not use the word 'species'. The unknown is this: What exactly is a 'kind'? They use the word 'baramin' and in fact there is a study called 'baraminology', which I think is the attempt to define what a 'baramin' actually is. Wikipedia says baramins are 'created kinds', that is, groups having no common ancestry.
They argue: One 'kind' might be what we would call today a thousand 'species'. For example, the dog 'kind' might include domestic dogs, wolves, coyotes, etc. The cat 'kind' would include, in addition to domestic cats, tigers, lions and hundreds of others.
I can't find any data on how kangaroos got from Mount Ararat all the way to Australia!

What did the carnivores eat?
If there were two of each 'kind' on the ark, what did the lions and tigers eat? Did they slip in a few extra antelopes or Zebras? Are there any real creationists in this group?
