By definition, a state animal is an animal that has been designated by the state's legislature as the official animal of that state. Each state doesn't just have one animal as its representative; some states have state mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and even butterflies. In the same way, they also have state trees, flowers and songs. But we're going to keep it on the animal track. Have you studied the 50 states of the USA enough to name their state animals from a single picture? Let's see!
Some states make it pretty obvious as to which animals they've chosen to represent them. For instance, it's understandable that the state animal of Florida is the dolphin, and the Longhorn is the representative for Texas. You can sometimes be clued in as to what the answer may be by a state's sports team, by the animals they have on their state flags and animals that live in that state in abundance. But not all are that obvious!
We've put some hints in place to help you if you get stuck. They make the answers pretty obvious without making you feel bad for not knowing the answer. So, don't be afraid, because you can definitely ace this quiz! So let's get started!
