Animals That Start With Y

Are you in search of some intriguing animals whose name starts with the letter “Y”? We already know about yaks and yapacas, but let’s take a look at some of the less well-known ones.

The yellow-bellied marmot is a small mammal native to North America. During winter, they snuggle up in their dens whereas during summer they feed on things such as nuts, fruits, grasses and mushrooms.

The yellow-billed cuckoo is an eye-catching bird found in South America that has its wings shrouded in black and a striking yellow beak – it mainly feeds on insects such as caterpillars and grasshoppers.

The yellow-footed rock wallaby is a marsupial from Australia that can be found near rocky areas where it consumes vegetation. And not to forget the yellowhammer – these sparrows inhabit Europe and Africa, leaping from tree branches while seeking out seeds or bugs for meals.

Finally, there’s the gorgeous yellow tang fish which inhabits tropical reefs around the world and dines on plankton and algae. This species plays an indispensable role in preserving coral reefs.
