Animals that Start with I

An ibex is an animal you’ll learn soon in the following article. But you’ll not only learn about the ibex but also about several other animals you might have not known existed. And each animal will have its definition and the animal will be used in a sentence to further help you understand the animal.


Mammals that start with I

Ibex -wild goat of mountain areas of Eurasia and northern Africa having large recurved horns.

The Dwarves in the last Hobbit movie rode Ibex to climb the hill and reach the enemy.


Ichneumon -northern African mongoose; in ancient times thought to devour crocodile eggs.

As the ichneumon dodges the bite of snake, it bites its neck and thus, dinner as served for the ichneumon.


Impala -African antelope with ridged curved horns; moves with enormous leaps.

As the cheetah accidentally steps on a stick, the impala dashes away and leaps away from the predator.


Indri -large short-tailed lemur of Madagascar having thick silky fur in black and white and fawn.

The indri stays with one partner unless he or she dies. Then they seek another.


Retiles that start with I

Iguana -large herbivorous tropical American arboreal lizards with a spiny crest along the back; used as human food in Central America and South America.

Thanks to its green color, the iguana was able to camouflage and was unseen by the hawk.


Ichthyosaur -any of several marine reptiles of the Mesozoic having a body like a porpoise with dorsal and tail fins and paddle-shaped limbs.

Ichthyosaur, now an extinct dinosaur, slightly resembles a dolphin or a whale.


Ischigualastia -early reptile found in Argentina.

Now an extinct dinosaur, the ischigualastia only known predator was a Saurosuchus.


Birds that start with I

Ibis -wading birds of warm regions having long slender down-curved bills.

Because the ibis has such a long bill, it uses it to search for food and swallows it whole.


Icteridae -American orioles; American blackbirds; bobolinks; meadowlarks.

The icteridae have such strong bills, it allows them to forcefully open gaps to gain food.


Irena -type genus of the Irenidae: fairy bluebirds.

The Irena are blue birds, but with red eyes!


Insects and critters that start with I

Inchworm -small hairless caterpillar having legs on only its front and rear segments; mostly larvae of moths of the family Geometridae.

Lacking legs, the inchworm was easy food for the bird.
