What is a species?

A species is a group of organisms that share common genetic characteristics and are able to interbreed to produce fertile offspring. There are over 5,000 known species of plants and animals on Earth, and scientists are still discovering new species every year.

So many ideas, but can I use the species names for free?

All random species names created with this tool are 100% free to use without any need to provide credit (although we do appreciate the occasional shoutout). Be a little careful though, as there is always a small chance that an idea already belongs to someone else.

Is there a limit to how much I can generate with this random Species Name Generator?

There's thousands of species names in this Species Name Generator, so you won't need to be worried that we'll run out anytime soon. Just have fun with it.
