We collected more than 400 animals beginning with the letter Y.
You probably expect to find a Yak in this list, but it is not here because we use species names rather than a group or common names. The term “yak” refers to large bovines belonging to the genus Bos. There are two known species: the Wild yak and the Domestic yak. Both of the species have common English names that don’t start with the letter “Y” so they are not included in this list.
For the same reason, a Yellowthroat can’t be found in this list. The term “yellowthroat” refers to small birds from the genus Geothlypis. There are 15 species in this genus and none of their common names start with the letter “Y”.
It can be confusing sometimes so we made a list of popular animal names starting with the letter “Y”. Here it is: Yak, Yellow Cobra, Yaki, Yellowhammer, Yellow Bellied Sapsucker, Yellowhead, Yellowthroat, Yellow-Eyed Penguin.
