Spanish Animal Words: English to Spanish Translations

This page is perfect for English speakers looking to learn some new Spanish animal words. Each section of the page has translations listed from English to Spanish, so you can easily look up the animal you wish to say.

First in line you'll find the list of English to Spanish animal words, followed by the same words organized into three groups - land, sea, and air. Below this, you'll find several sentences that can help teach you how to use the animal words in normal conversation. Last, there's a video you can watch which reads aloud many of the animal words, that should help you with your pronunciation. (Because it can be hard to know how things are spoken, just from reading a webpage).
