Three baby animal names sure to make you smile

baby animal names

Puggle. Porcupette. Pup. Believe it or not, these are not made-up words but actual baby animal names. Baby porcupines are referred to as “porcupettes,” and the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center recently started taking care of one.

Puggle is even more interesting. Perhaps it is what you call a puppy pug? Wrong. Puggle is what you call a baby platypus. Although it isn’t as common of a name, these animals have also been referred to as “platypups.” Lastly, “pup,” not to get confused with a baby canine, refers to a baby seal. You can find more fun animal names here.
