In a world full of mediocre jokes and hackneyed puns, there’s one category that’ll never get banal. Yup, it’s animal puns! And how could it ever get boring if there are around 8.7 million animal species on our planet, and a funny pun must be appointed to each of them! And, although Screaming Hairy Armadillo or Paradoxical Frog already sounds like the beginnings of a clever pun, those are actual animal names, and we’re not here to make fun of them. So instead, check out our list of these peachy animal puns; there are so many, you could use a different one each day for the better part of the year!

Starting with such classics as an alligator in a vest and a definition of Hamsterdam to such wild ones as season’s greetings from a llama, this list covers all of the most popular animal species, celebrations, day-to-day happenings, and many more. Theoretically, you could make a DIY table calendar with a hilarious pun selected for each of the upcoming festivities, for instance, National Badger Day or National Lemon Cream Pie Day. Both are very real, and you can definitely commemorate them with a unique pun or two. 

By now, you know what comes next - our directions for you to scroll on down below to reveal the awesome puns that we’ve gathered! After you’ve tamed your giggles, be sure to vote for the most hilarious puns, and don’t be shy to share this article, dedicated to animal puns, with your friends. You might even start your own monthly or weekly celebration - a Share A Pun Day!
