The United States is quite massive. So much, in fact, that it is highly ranked among the most diverse and fascinating places in the entire world. This goes double for the animals we can find in this great nation, which vary so incredibly much between each of the states. There are 432 species of mammals, over 800 types of birds, and 100,000 species of insects alone. It is safe to say there are some impressive creatures within the United States, so narrowing that down to just ten is quite difficult to do indeed. We did that, though, so here are ten of the most impressive, interesting animals to check out in the US.
The Chicken Turtle is recognized by its long, striped neck, and is a medium-sized aquatic turtle located within shallow ponds, lakes, and some swamps in the southeastern United States. These turtles have around 15-20 years to live.
The Pygmy Rabbit, though incredibly cute, is also rather tiny in size. Measuring only around 9 to 12 inches in length, these are the smallest rabbits to inhabit the planet. They tend to live within the mountains of the western United States.
