Animals that Start with X: Animals with the letter X comprise: Xanthippe’s Shrew as well as the xolo (a breed of dog) and the The leaf-toed gecko of Xantus (a kind of lizard) and fish like the X-ray Tetra and xestus the sabretooth blenny, and birds like Xantus’ Hummingbird as well as the xeme.

For each animal below, I begin with an alphabetical listing of names commonly used in bold. Then I provide the alphabetical listing of names for animals that begin with x boldly italics. For any genus having more than one species, I only include the name of the genus (plus the species number in the parenthesis).

Animals that Start with X

If you’re interested to know what the species belonging to the genus are, you can try search for the genus’s name on Wikipedia or the IUCN Redlist. I’ve also added a few higher classifications such as that of the superorder Xenarthra (that includes sloths, anteaters, and the armadillos). For any genus with only one species within it I’ve included the complete scientific name as well as the common name, if one exists. There is also an additional list of dinosaurs beginning with x and some other animals from the prehistoric period that begin with x!

We’ve compiled an alphabetical listing of animals that begin at the letter X. There are some animal names that start with this letter and some of the animals are in reference to a specific set of species. These animals are spread across the globe and each is distinct and distinctive. We’ve also added an interesting information about their habits, behavior as well as their behavior. so that you are able to get a better understanding of them.
