10 Least Popular Animals Whose Names Start with The Letter P

They may not be as popular as their cousins, but these animals whose names start with the letter P are simply awesome in their on right.

Aside from Pig, penguin, panda, pigeon, pelican, puma, panther, pug…. the animal Kingdom offers as with other awesome animals whose names start with the letter P. Here is a list of what I consider, least-known “P” animals.

Puffin

Puffins are stocky penguin-like seabirds inhabiting open sea, steep cliffs and islands of the North Atlantic Ocean and North Pacific Ocean. All three extant species (Horned Puffin, Tufted Puffin, and Atlantic Puffin) have large beaks, short-wings and short-tails, wide webbed feet, and generally sporting black and white plumage. These pelagic seabirds average 30 cm long and weigh 345 – 488g. Generally, males are bigger than females. Puffins are excellent divers, feeding mostly on sand eels, fish larvae and other aquatic invertebrates.

Pademelon

A pademelon is a small marsupial found inhabiting dense forests of Queensland , New South Wales, Tasmania and parts of New Guinea. Majority of the seven known species have dark-brown upperparts and red-brown underparts. It has relatively short tail and legs. Adult males which are bigger than females average around 1 – 1.2 m long, including the tail and can weigh up to 12 kg. This solitary and nocturnal animal, feeds on green grasses, green shoots and herbs.

Ptarmigan

This odd bird changes its plumage color thrice in a year. It sports a brownish with dark stripes plumage in summer, grayish color in fall and white during winter. Its diet includes: leaves, berries and sometimes other small insects.

    they are least known animals. i hope they should be protected by the government where these animals live so that they will not become endangered species.
