The 13 Animals that Start with B Most Relevant

Simon Doyle

Between the animals that start with the letter B Whales, buffaloes, oxen, bison, donkeys, vultures, boas, sea breams, cod and owls stand out. Some of these animals are characterized by being quite large.

An example is the whale, the largest marine animal. The bison also falls into this category, since it is a mammal of large proportions.

In the same order, oxen and buffalo are included, which are animals of great weight and large body structure.

The boa, a very voluminous snake, is added to the group. The vulture also integrates this classification, since it is a bird that can acquire considerable dimensions depending on the species and that, even so, can fly. 

Most important animals starting with B

The whale is an excellent mother with her young. It has holes in its back to breathe out of the water and makes a sound that has been called the whale's song..

In some countries it is subjected to indiscriminate hunting for fun, for which it has been protected. In other parts of the planet it is the source of food for some populations.

2- Buffalo

It is very similar to a bull, but it has a distinctive feature: its spectacular horns, which appear braided and are quite sharp..

Its weight can reach 1000 kilos. It is an animal that can be dangerous to man if he attacks him. This is because it has not been possible to domesticate.
