Different Animals 

Let’s know the different names of animal body parts.  

Explanation: 

Body parts of Animals:

Animals with a Tail and Horns 

Most of the animals have a tail on their bodies. Some animals also have horns along with their tails. The animals use their horns to break tree branches and fight their enemies.  

Many animals have hard structures, called horns, growing from their heads. Most horned animals also have hooves. Sheep, cattle, goats, and antelopes are some of the most common horned animals.

Animals with Tails 

Some animals, like tigers, do not have horns but have a tail. The tails help these animals keep away insects and flies. Some animals, like monkeys, use tails to balance their bodies.  

The tails of most animals have one or more uses. Tails help many animals to move. As a monkey swings through the trees, its tail grabs branches to keep it from falling.  

A squirrel uses its tail to balance and steer as it leaps through the air.
