Hi again!

I`ve puzzled the next one rather long, and Im pretty stuck with it:

Code:
void loadAnimals(const vector<Animal*> *animals, const char* filename)
{
  ...
  ...
  // open file, etc.
  ...
  Animal *animal = NULL;
  // bunch of code to read animal data from the file.
  // the animal`s type (inheritance) is determined here
  // this part works fine.
  // for example,     animal = new Dog();

  // puzzled about this
  animals->push_back(*animal);  // won`t compile
  // animals->push_back(&animal);  // won`t compile
}

how do I push the object into the vector?
