Dataset Information

Additional Information

A simple database containing 17 Boolean-valued attributes. The "type" attribute appears to be the class attribute. Here is a breakdown of which animals are in which type: (I find it unusual that there are 2 instances of "frog" and one of "girl"!)

Has Missing Values?
