Animal Parts

Animals have special parts that help them grow and live. Read about them below!

  • Tails

    Cows and horses have long tails. The tails help the animals swat away insects.

  • Udders

    Female mammals have a special body part called an udder. This is where milk
    is made. Farmers use milking machines to remove the milk from some mammals. People can drink this milk.

  • Split Hooves

    A hoof is an animal toe with a thick, hard covering. Split hooves help animals balance better on soft ground. Pigs, cattle, sheep, and goats all have split hooves.

  • Wool

    Sheep grow heavy coats called wool. In warm weather, too much wool makes them too hot. Farmers cut the wool off the sheep to keep that from happening.
