Welcome to my animal alphabet series! If you’ve looked around my site, then you know I love animals. When I was a kid we used to play the animal alphabet game when we went on a road trip. One person would say, “I went on safari and I saw an Alligator.” The next would say “I went on safari and I saw an Alligator and a Bear”. We each added one animal in turn until we got through the whole alphabet, or somebody couldn’t remember one of the names in the list. Of course nobody could think of any animals that start with N. (Can you?) But there were some other hard ones too. So in honor of that game, I’ve started my own list of animals a-z.

About my Animal Alphabet
For this collection of A-Z Animals, I’m only using one-word English common names. They’re the best for the animal alphabet game and they’re also the best if you’re making a collection of animal letters to help kids learn their letters! Sometimes they are names for a single species like the Narwhal (a whale with a giant “unicorn horn”!) Sometimes they are more general words that refer to a group of animals, like Crocodile. (there are actually about 15 different species of crocodiles in the world!) But both are great for any list of animals A to Z! So let’s dive in!
Alphabet Animals A to Z
This collection of animals that start with each letter of the alphabet is a work in progress so I will link the posts as I create them!
