Welcome! In all likelihood, you've reached this webpage because you're in need of generating a number of random animals. That's exactly what the Random Animal Generator does. The process to do so is quite simple. The first step is to choose the desired number of animals to be generated, then click the "generate" button. This will bring up a random sample of the number of animals requested. It may not seem obvious why anyone would need to generate a list of random animals, but below you'll find a few of the more common reasons others have used this free online tool in the past.
Animals can be interesting and there are a lot of animals for which you're likely not familiar. A great way to discover new and interesting animals is to have random ones appear before you. This can lead to you doing more research on the ones you have not come across before allowing you to expand your knowledge of the different types of animals on this planet.
If you're a teacher or need a homeschool project for your child, having them do a report on an animal is a great way to give a lesson while sparking their interest in nature. A fun way to do this is by randomly assigning the animal instead of letting them choose one they already know. The child is much more likely to end up having to research an animal they know little about which will force them to dig a little deeper than if they chose the animal report on their own. They may even find a new favorite animal!
Using the Random Animal Generator is a great way to play a game of animal charades with your friends. While some of the animals will be easy to mime, others will present quite the challenge. If you and your friends enjoy the game of charades, you'll love animal charades as well.
