Terms for Groups of Animals, Birds and Insects



  • For animal tracks, make a stamp. Remember to make a left and right. And don't use black ink... No prints would be that color, and none would be perfect. Dip the stamp into slightly diluted tacky glue, stamp it where you want, and then dust it with scrapings from an appropriately- colored artist pastel. This way, you'll get variations with every print, which should look more natural.
  • Animals come in different sizes and vary I based on age and type. As a rough guideline, a pig is shorter tha waist high, but above the knee. (under 2 feet high and 3-4 feet long). Cow about shoulder height, about 5 foot 3 inches long). Chickens are about 18 inches tall. Horses are about 6 feet at the shoulder.
