    Please help

    Hi everyone,
    What do we call in English the expressions like the following which have the same pattern:
    as wild as a tiger
    as stubborn as a mule
    as weak as a kitten
    as sick as a dog
    as scared as a rabbit
    …….
    Please help me with the name of theses types of idioms.
    Thanks
