Baby animal names

2015年6月26日 | 2 コメント

You probably know that we call baby dogs "puppies" in English, and baby cats "kittens," but do you know the names for other baby animals?

1. Chick

Baby birds are called "chicks."

2. Calf

Baby cows are called "calves."

Awwww....so cute! Cows have such beautiful eyes.

3. Cub

We call many baby animals "cubs." For example:

Bear cubs

Lion cubs

Tiger cubs

4. Kit

Baby foxes are "kits."

5. Fawn

Baby deer are "fawns."

6. Piglet

Baby pigs are "piglets."

7. Lamb

Baby sheep are "lambs."

8. Foal, filly (female)

Baby horses are called "foals," and if they're female they are sometimes called "fillies." 

*By the way, English has many, many names for horses. I can think of 11, depending on the age and the gender of the horse.

9. Kid

Last but not least, one of my favorite animals! Baby goats are called "kids."
