Introduction to Animals

When studying English, you will most likely come across a large number of animals, each with its unique name. There are many different animal types, and learning the names of these species by types, such as mammals, reptiles, birds, and insects, is generally easier. You might also be interested in learning animal names based on their habitats, such as farm animals, jungle creatures, and pets. Some people prefer to memorise animal names in alphabetical order. Learning the names of animals in English, regardless of the method you use, is a vital component of your education.

Animals move, ingest organic substances, have impulses, and are thoughtless beings. There are approximately one million animal species known to exist. Animals' bodies and organ structures allow them to adapt to their surroundings. Hair and feathers are not found on the bodies of aquatic creatures, although they are found on the bodies of most land-based species.

Everyone enjoys animals, whether they are kept as pets, in a zoo, or visited on a farm.

Animals can be categorised into the following basic categories:

  • Pets

  • Farm & Domestic Animals

  • Wild Animals

  • Birds
