Eventually is right, as in after printing a new book each day for thirty
thousand years at least. The number of animal species in existence is far
greater than you imagine. Even if we take only the number of vertebrate
species, which make up a mere 1% or so of the total number of animal
species, I do not think that O'Reilly will run out of animals any time soon.
