    CREATE TABLE animal
      idani CHAR(8) NOT NULL,
      numcl CHAR(5) DEFAULT NULL,
      cotypa CHAR(2) NOT NULL ,
      noman VARCHAR(20) DEFAULT NULL,
      race VARCHAR(20) DEFAULT NULL,
      daten DATE DEFAULT NULL,
      sexe CHAR(1) NOT NULL,
      coule VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL,
      steril CHAR(1) DEFAULT 'N',
      taill FLOAT NOT NULL,
      poids FLOAT NOT NULL,
      deced CHAR(1) DEFAULT 'N',
      comme VARCHAR(250) DEFAULT NULL,
      CONSTRAINT animal_idani_pk PRIMARY KEY(idani),
      CONSTRAINT animal_numcl_fk FOREIGN KEY(numcl) REFERENCES parmentier.client(numcl),
