Below are the five classes of vertebrates, the Thai term, and the Thai term's relatively direct translation (translation = my translation). You'll notice that birds and fish are pretty simple! Yay!
- Reptile - สัตว์เลื้อยคลาน - animal that crawls
- Amphibian - สัตว์สะเทินบกสะเทินน้ำ - animal that lives on both land and water
- Bird - นก - bird
- Fish - ปลา - fish
- Mammal - สัตว์เลี้ยงลูกด้วยนม - animal that raises young with milk
Does anyone know these translations in other languages? Spanish? Russian? Japanese? etc.? I still think Thai will end up with the coolest translations!
