• Animal
• Mammals
• Birds
• Reptiles. For example:
• dinosaurs
• crocodiles
• Vegetable
• Cultivated
• Wild
• Mineral

In the first (or outermost) level, each \item produces a bullet point, in the next level each \item produces an en-dash, and in the third level, each \item produces an asterisk. Each level is offset further from the left margin than the previous level.
