Animals Names Starting With S

They are more than 32 animals names starting with S that I can found so far and in the list below I was starting with salamander, salmon and end with swan. Check out the table list below to see all the animals names that start with S plus they scientific names.

Salmon is the common name for several species of fish in the family Salmonidae. Other fish in the same family include trout, char, grayling and whitefish. Salmon are native to tributaries of the North Atlantic (genus Salmo) and Pacific Ocean (genus Oncorhynchus).

Salmon is a range of pale pinkish-orange to light pink colors, named after the color of salmon flesh. The web color salmon is displayed at right. The first recorded use of salmon as a color name in English was in 1776.

Some salmon migrate several thousand miles from the time they leave the rivers as juveniles until they return as adults. A chinook salmon tagged in the central Aleutian Islands and recovered a year later in the Salmon River, Idaho, had traveled about 3,500 miles; a steelhead trout tagged south of Kiska Island (western Aleutians) was recovered about six months and 2,200 miles later in the Wynoochee River, Washington. 

Swans are birds of the family Anatidae within the genus Cygnus. The swans' close relatives include the geese and ducks. Swans are grouped with the closely related geese in the subfamily Anserinae where they form the tribe Cygnini.

Swans are more commonly found in the northern hemisphere, although some reside in Australia, New Zealand, and South America. The vast majority of swans, however, are found in the northern United States, Canada, and Alaska. They are commonly found on lakes and rivers.

Believe it or not, swans can sleep on either land or the water. They have the option of sleeping while standing on one leg or while floating in the water.
