Names of Young Ones
English language has names for males, females, young and old, for both humans and animals. Most of the learners are familiar with the titles for humans. This makes it an interesting process to be familiar with the names of the young ones of the animals too.
There are different kinds of animals living on earth. That means that there are different kinds of baby animals! Some animals lay eggs. Some animals give birth to their babies. Mammals give birth to their babies. Animals look after their young ones till the time the babies grow enough to take care of themselves. Few animals are very large even when they're born. Usually children often say ‘puppy’ instead of ‘pup’ for a baby dog. They also call a baby cat ‘kitty’ instead of ‘kitten.’ A baby wolf or fox can be called either a ‘pup’ or a ‘cub’ and a baby fox can also be called a ‘kit.’ This means that one should learn what the babies of different animals are called.
