We collected more than 1110 animals beginning with the letter H.
You probably expect to find a Hyena in this list, but it is not here because we use species names rather than a group or common names. The term “hyena” refers to feliform mammals belonging to the family Hyaenidae. There are four extant species exist: the Spotted hyena, the Brown hyena, the Striped hyena, and the Aardwolf. None of these hyena species' English name starts with the letter “H” and can’t be found in this list.
A different example is with a Hare. The term “hare” refers to mammals belonging to the genus Lepus. Members of the Lepus genus are considered true hares and differ from rabbits which make up the rest of the Leporidae family. There are 33 species of hares exist today among which are several species that are called "jackrabbits", but classed as hares rather than rabbits. Among such variety only the Hainan hare is included in this list because its English name starts with the letter “H”.
It is quite confusing sometimes so we made a list of popular animal names starting with the letter “H”. Here it is: Horse, Hippopotamus, Hare, Hyena, Hummingbird, Heron, Horned grebe, Hartebeest, Hornbill, Harbor seal, Hedgehog, Hamster, Hyacinth Macaw, House finch, Hawk.
