Name These Animals Solution.

  • 1.
    Mouse. A nice easy one to start with. I hope you got it straight away.
  • 2.
    Fly. Okay it’s a zip, but zips are found in different places and this zip is from a pair of pants  (okay, I should have included the pants!) so it’s a fly.
  • 3.
    Butterfly. You may have worked this one out before number 2. Or maybe not.
  • 4.
    Mussels. Different spelling but pronounced the same way as muscles.
  • 5.
    Cane toad. It’s a walking cane being towed. Easy!
  • 6.
    Cricket. Bet you got this one straight away!
  • 7.
    Python. Pie plus thong. I should have got rid of the letter “g” as I did with the “t’ in raft (see number 22).
  • 8.
    Crane. It’s letter k’s falling as rain so k-rain. Hmmm, a bit of a cheat!
  • 9.
    Toucans. Two cans! Too easy!
  • 10.
    Elephant. This is my favourite. I know it has an animal in it already but I still like it. A leaf in the shape of an “L” so it is an L-leaf and then an ant. L-leaf ant.
  • 11.
    Monkey. “M” on key = M on key = Monkey.
  • 12.
    Possum. P O S sum – get it?!
  • 13.
    Frog. This is a difficult one to illustrate. How do you draw fog? It’s an “R” in fog. So “f R og”.
  • 14.
    Lynx. Links in a chain – different spelling but same pronunciation.
  • 15.
    Lion. It’s simply a line – which sounds like Lion.
  • 16.
    Tiger. Tie + gr = tiger.
  • 17.
    Collie. It’s a cauliflower which is often shortened to “cauli”.
  • 18.
    Boxer. Obvious? (It’s a type of dog).
  • 19.
    Slug. Slang for a bullet.
  • 20.
    Dog. It’s a god (Egyptian) in a mirror so you reverse god and it becomes dog.
  • 21.
    Cow. Another mirror one. It’s a wok reversed to become kow which sounds like cow.
  • 22.
    Donkey. You need to know a little cricketing history to get this one. Donald “Don” Bradman was a famous cricketer. This is his key. So Don key.
  • 23.
    Flamingo. Another tricky one to illustrate. It’s “go” on fire. So flaming go – flamingo.
  • 24.
    Giraffe. A raft with a “G” on it – so g-raft. But the Tea (“T”) has floated away so its a g-raf.
  • 25.
    Snail. A nail in the shape of an “S” = s-nail
