    Need Help With Animal Words...

    Hi, teachers:

    I'm trying to compile lists of animal words. And I'm planning to include two categories:

    1. adjectives end with suffix "-ine", the ones I've collected so far are as follows:
    asinine, swine, feline, equiline, canine, equine, ovine, bovine, taurine.
    Any other ones apart from these??

    2. List of " Animal in general-Animal plural--female anmial -baby animal ", this may sound confusing to you, the following is an example:

    "tiger, tigers, tigress, xxx " (I don't know the word for "baby tigers")
    "ox, oxen, cow, xxx" (don't know the word for "baby oxen", either)
    "goose, geese, goose, gosling"

    I'm not making a complete list of all animals. I only need help with animals with variants in female, plural and baby forms. I remember coming across quite a lot of "baby animal words" end with the suffix "-ling", but can't recall the exact animals in question.

    Apologies for so many questions and thanks in advance to all answerers.:)

    Exactly what I've been looking for. Thanks a million, Mr.Raymott.

    Way more "-nine" adjectives than I thought. Appalling.
