Did You Know?
The lion is the most popular national animal in the world.
A nation can have an animal, tree, bird, or an object as its national symbol. For example, the Bald Eagle is the national animal of the United States of America. It was adopted as a symbol of national significance by the Continental Congress on June 20th 1782. The design of the Bald Eagle holding 13 arrows, and a 13-leaf olive branch has been the same since its inception.

National symbols are extremely important, as they represent certain aspects which are considered to be of national significance for the country and its people. These symbols may or may not appear on the national flag, emblem, or on the coat of arms. It is essential to understand that national symbols should never be confused with less formal symbols that are usually associated with cliches.

Now we move on the various national animals of countries around the world.
