This paper proposes a machine vision system suitable for the automatic
classification of animal species. Edge tracking and silhouette
encapsulation using s- psi coding is used to match the outline shape of the
animal against a normalised library. An experimental system is described,
and results from initial tests are reported. The proposed system has great
potential for a low-cost, robust system to remotely monitor or classify
