Animal-faces in Barks-stories / April, May and June

One june 6, 2003, I asked if anyone ever attempted to make a list of
the different animal-faces in Duckburg, apart from the well-known 
dog-faces, pig-faces, chicken(?)-faces (like Gyro) and rat-faces.

You can see some results below. In these results, I've decided to 
include non-Duckburgians and rat-faces.

The reason for including non-Duckburgians is that I find the variety 
of animal-face more important than their location.
The reason for including rat-faces is that they are scarce, and 
sometimes it's discussable if they really are rat-faces.

Thanks to Nils Klartekst (4 stories), Frank Bubacz (6 stories), and 
Roy Kooijman (1 story).

Additions and corrections are welcome, of course.

Frank Bubacz notes that last not least there also live human beings in 
Duckburg. That's a different matter, though I would find it interesting 
to see a complete list of Barks-stories with real humans. I think that 
would be nice as another trivia-quiz. (Unless such a list already is
available, of course.)
