Just how many animals are there in the Bible? It probably depends on what version of the Bible you are reading. Different versions of the Bible call animals different things. Take for example the cockatrice mentioned before. That animal is only mentioned in the King James Version of the Bible.

So what is a cockatrice? It’s a mythical animal; it was a serpent produced from a cock’s egg. It’s thought that the original Hebrew word was unknown. Not knowing how to tranlate it, the translators used the word cockatrice. A few biologoy lessons later and the newer versions of the Bible interpret the word as “serpent” or “viper.”

Now that is pretty interesting.
