Animal and their homes

Every animal lives in the habitat specific to it. Not all animal can live in about any kind of space. Some stay in cold areas, some in hot and humid areas. Just like different habitats of every animal, so are their homes. Each of the animals construct or find peculiar kind of homes that are best suited for them to live in, albeit temporarily. The type of shelter of every animal broadly depends upon the animal groups it belongs to - bird, fish, reptile, amphibian, mammal or insect. Generally, the shelters of different animals in a particular group are somewhat similar in design, yet will be dissimilar in terms of size and construct. In other words, we all know that all birds are sheltered in nests but then each of the bird’s nest design differs and are peculiar to that specific bird only.

Since every animal has a specific home to it, each of the shelters comes with distinct names too. Dogs stay in kennels, bee in beehives, donkeys in sheds and so on. It is important that kids learn as many shelter names as possible. This is will not only enhance their knowledge but will also help with the right usage of terms. This is an exhaustive list of animals and their shelters to help children learn the correct terms. They will not only learn these names but will also develop an interest in various animal habitats and their homes.
