List of animals on letter B

Baboon

Baboon

Type of animal science: Anatomy, behavior, classification, ecology, evolution
Fields of study: Anthropology, ecology, ethology, evolutionary science, human origins, systematics (taxonomy), wildlife ecology, zoology
Baboons are among the most widespread and adaptable of monkeys. Their behavior, ecology, and evolutionary history may shed light on human origins.

Badger

Badger

Type of animal science: Behavior, classification, reproduction
Fields of study: Anatomy, classification
Badger is a part of Weasel family.

Bat

Bat

Type of animal science: Classification
Fields of study: Anatomy, ecology, physiology, wildlife ecology, zoology
Over nine hundred species of bats have been identified, classified in the general order Chiroptera, the second largest order of mammals.

Bear

Bear

Type of animal science: Classification
Fields of study: Anatomy, conservation biology, evolutionary science, wildlife ecology, zoology
Bears are large mammals making up the family Ursidae, that have adapted to habitats as diverse as the sea ice of the Arctic and the bamboo forests of China.

Beaver

Beaver

Type of animal science: Classification, ecology
Fields of study: Ecology, systematics (taxonomy), wildlife ecology, zoology
Beavers were almost wiped out in North America by the fur trade in the nineteenth century. Now thriving in many areas, beavers are a keystone species in their ecosystem because their activities modify habitats dramatically.

Bee

Bee

Type of animal science: Classification
Fields of study: Anatomy, entomology, invertebrate biology
Over ten thousand species of bees form the order Hymenoptera. Honeybees, the best known, produce honey and beeswax.

Beetle

Beetle

Type of animal science:Anatomy, behavior, classification, ecology, geography, reproduction
Fields of study: Anatomy, ecology, entomology, reproduction science, zoology
Over 300,000 species of beetles have been identified, classified in the general order Coleoptera, the largest order of animals in the insect world. Beetles constitute more than 40 percent of the 700,000 known insect species.

Brachiosaurus

Brachiosaurus

Type of animal science: Classification, evolution
Fields of study: Anatomy, ecology, evolutionary science, paleontology, systematics (taxonomy)
Brachiosaurus was a quadrupedal, herbivorous dinosaur whose role as a high browser in Late Jurassic ecosystems was similar to that of the giraffe today.

Butterflies and moths

Butterflies and moths

Type of animal science:Classification
Fields of study: Anatomy, entomology, evolutionary science, invertebrate biology, physiology
Approximately 17,000 species of butterflies and 153,000 species of moths have been classified in the general order Lepidoptera (insects with scaly wings). They exhibit an incredible variety of color, pattern, shape, and size, as well as the ability to adapt to almost every climate.
