We’ve curated a list of twenty animals that begin with P and some fun facts about them.

These fishes haven’t undergone many changes since the cretaceous period. Paddlefish are large freshwater fishes that can get up to seven feet long. Despite their size, these fishes feed on zooplankton alone.
Pademelons are marsupials that can be found in Australia. They are closely related to wallabies and kangaroos but are solitary animals. They are nocturnal, so they only come out to eat berries, leaves, and grasses at night.
Peacocks are notable for their bright tail feathers and intricate mating dances. They also have eyespots on those feathers, called ocelli, to dissuade predators.
Fun Fact: A group of Peacocks is called a pride or an ostentation.
