Man is a social animal. We are surrounded by many other animals, some friendly, some ferocious, some are dangerous, while some are domestic. Some even become our pets! Simply said, an animal is a living thing that can move and breathe on its own. 

Every animal has unique characteristics and features. Every animal has distinct looks, eyes, nose, ears and structures. There may be changes in the skin pattern, color and body strength. Also, there are different types of animals such as herbivores, carnivores and omnivores that are classified based on what they eat to live.



The animals which eat only plants are called herbivores. Best examples of herbivores are cow, goat, deer, etc.




An animal which feeds on another animals are called carnivores. Best examples for carnivores are lion, tiger etc.




An animal that eats a variety of food, both plants and animals are called omnivores. Best examples for omnivores are bear, rats, pigs etc.
