There are some pretty funny and weird names given to different animals in Africa, especially if you have a look at the Afrikaans language. Afrikaans is a language widely spoken throughout South Africa, Namibia and even in some parts of Botswana.
Below you will see the English animal name, the animal name in Afrikaans... and a translation back to English of that Afrikaans name. Clearly, Afrikaans speaking people have a great sense of humour... and there is just something special about pigs and horses and lazy animals. Enjoy.
