Baby Animals!

Baby animals are perfect for Baby's room. Just about the only thing that can hold a candle to the cuteness of a little baby person is a little baby animal. We're big fans of art by Cathy Walters, who manages to put heart and soul into each little lifelike critter she paints. Meghann O'Hara is another favorite: her whimsical interpretations of little creatures add a pop of color and personality to a nursery's walls.

The two pieces of art we've included here are of a pair of bunnies (Cathy Walters) and a puppy (Meghann O'Hara). You probably already knew that a baby rabbit is called a bunny and a baby dog is called a puppy. But here are some other baby animal names that might come as a surprise. They sure surprised us!

A baby ant is called an antling.

A baby clam is called a larva.

A baby crocodile is called a hatchling (so is a baby dinosaur!).

A baby fish is called a fry.

A baby gerbil is called a pup.

A baby ox is called a stot.

A baby platypus is called a puggle.

Those are just a few of our favorite baby animal names. You can find many, many more at zooborns.com, which even includes a picture of each one. You could make a matching game out of the names and challenge a friend to see how much he or she knows about baby animals!
