Do You Know What Animal This Disney Character Actually is?

It's the circle of life! With Disney films like "The Lion King," you're given a cast that is completely made of animals. While many other Disney films follow a cast of mostly humans, you'd be sure to find some animals thrown into the mix. From lions, tigers, and bears, oh my, can you name what kind of animal the Disney character actually is?

The earliest Disney film, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," focused on human characters. With the release of the second film, "Pinocchio," Disney fans were introduced to anthropomorphic characters -- animals that have human characteristics. This film would introduce Jiminy Cricket while later films would bring "Dumbo," "Bambi," and Dalmatians to life.

With all of these characters wandering around these Disney films, could you recognize what animal they are? While it might be obvious that a Dalmatian is a dog and Simba and Mufasa were lions, what was Timon? What was Pumbaa? 

In "The Little Mermaid," was Sebastian a crab or a lobster? What kind of animal was Meeko, Pocahontas' friend in the 1995 film? Can you name all of these characters? While they might be able to talk like a human and have emotions like one, they're most certainly animals!

Do you know what animal these Disney characters are? Let's find out!
