How many purple-colored animals can you name? Let me show you ten.
Name a purple fruit and the very first thing that will come to mind will most probably be grapes. How about in the animal kingdom? Can you name any purple-colored animals?
When I tried searching for grape-hued creatures I discovered that many of them are living in the ocean which means that most of us will only get to see them in pictures. Many bottom dwellers come in all sorts of colors, several even in combination like the sea star, sea slugs and their relatives.Try searching for pink, orange, green and blue animals and many images will no doubt be family members of these small sea creatures.
Land animals that also come in many colors include frogs, insects, and birds. Do they also have cousins with purple complexion? See for yourself.
