There are so many different species of animals in this world, some of them widely familiar, and some of them not so popular. However, they are all quite awesome. I am a huge animal lover and I find them the most extraordinary of creatures, every single one. So here’s a list of 10 interesting animals I have selected for you, if you would like to learn something more.
This interesting species belongs to the family of wildcats whose adult size is medium. They are characteristic for their luminous eyes and the tips of black hair on top of their ears. They can be mostly found in Europe, Asia and North America, especially in dense forests on a higher altitude.
These awesome animals are part of the horse family. They are widely recognized for their unique black and white stripes. An interesting fact is that the pattern of the stripes is different with every single animal, no two are exactly the same. Oh, and if you have been wondering whether a zebra is black with white stripes or vice versa, it has been scientifically proven that the zebra’s background color is black. Mystery solved!
Mountain lions, also known as cougars, pumas or panthers. Although they are called mountain lions, they are more similar to the domestic cat than they are to the lion. However, they are still pretty large and dangerous. But, they usually don’t attack humans unless their territory is being violated. Their native continents are the North and South America.
The elephant is the largest mammal and animal at all which lives on land. They are one of the most intelligent animals in the world, they use various ways to communicate, and have been known to show some feelings such as empathy. This massive species is either vulnerable or endangered, which is bad news because they are the only survivors of their family which primarily included mammoths and mastodons.
This is a subspecies of the lynx that is mostly found in Europe and Asia, and that is where its name comes from.
Black Bear Cubs
These cute little cubs belong to the species of American Black Bears. This animal is most commonly found in North America, and forests are their natural habitat. They usually live for about 18 years, and an interesting and well-known feature they possess is the winter hibernation they enter sometime in October.
These awesome colorful parrots actually belong to the Rainbow Lorikeet species, a type of Australasian parrot which can usually be found in rainforests. They are characterized by their bright lively colors and an interesting thing about them is that they usually travel in pairs.
The wolf is the ancestor of human’s best friend, the dog, and a pretty impressive animal, in my opinion. They are quite intelligent, although not to the level dogs have attained, but still, they can learn fast. They lack the reliability of dogs though, which is normal, seeing as the dog is a domesticated animal and the wolf is not.
Horses are one of the most beautiful animals humans have ever domesticated. Intelligent and proud, they have served humans since around 4000 B.C. and they are one of the most loyal animals. Fun fact about horses – they are incredibly alert and can sleep both standing up and lying down.
The arctic hare, or commonly known as the polar rabbit, can be found in the northernmost parts of the world, such as Greenland and Canada.
