Your entire perspective is going to change today, my friends.

Because you’re about to learn something that I’m willing to bet a lot of you never thought you would…how do you feel about BETTER NAMES FOR ANIMALS?

Yes, you read that right! And all of us are in for a real treat today, because I personally believe that some animal names are just plain outdated and need to be freshened up.

For example: I’m sure you’re familiar with the manatee, right? That adorable creature sometimes called “the sea cow”? Well, from now on, all manatees will be called FLOATY POTATOES.

Are you ready to see some more? Let’s check them out!

1. The nope rope!

Don’t get near that thing!

2. Also, don’t get near this thing.

Can’t you see those antlers?!?!

3. Now this is a cool name.

It just flows right off the tongue.

4. A very dangerous chicken.

Stay far, far away…Actually, I don’t even know what this is.

5. A creature from the deep.

He’s headed straight for Red Lobster.

6. Awwww, who doesn’t love a manatee?

Or a Floaty Potato, I meant…

7. This one is spot-on!

You know it’s true!

8. There goes the ol’ wobble stick.

They’re kind of cute!

9. That’s when it’s time to RUN.

You better get going!

10. This is kind of horrific, not gonna lie.

And the name ain’t helping, either…

11. They sure are magical!

And colorful, too!

Okay, now it’s your turn.

In the comments, get creative and share some better names for animals that you’ve come up with.

We’d love to hear from you!
