Animals in arabic – الْحَيَوَاْنَاْتُ

Most animal names in Arabic have only one gender; either masculine or feminine. The name will be used for both male and female animals regardless of its gender. However, there are also numerous animals that have two versions of their names, one for each gender; albeit the female version are not always used. All the names of animals here written are singulars and in the nominative absolute (indefinite) case.

Determining which animals have two versions of their names for each gender is a horrendous task in Arabic, because of the so much arbitrariness and vagueness in usage.
