We collected more than 100 animals beginning with the letter Z.
You probably expect to find a Zebra in this list, but it is not here because we use species names rather than a group or common names. The term “zebra” refers to African mammals that are members of the genus Equus. There are three living species: the Grévy's zebra, the Plains zebra, and the Mountain zebra. The common English names of all three species don’t start with the letter “Z” and that’s why they are not included in this list.
Instead of Zebras from Equus genus, this list includes 5 animals that have the term “zebra” as a part of their common English name. They are the Zebra mussel, the Zebra finch, the Zebra dove, the Zebra duiker, and the Zebra-tailed lizard. The term “zebra” as a part of their name originates from coloration resembling the Zebra black-and white stripes pattern.
Since it can be confusing sometimes we made a list of popular animal names starting with the letter “Z”. Here it is: Zebra, Zebra Finch, Zorro, Zebra shark, Zebu, Zokor, Zorilla, Zebra Spitting Cobra.
