Most Underused Animals in Logo Design

Recommended Posts

I thought of another one today, the Wisent. Its basically a European Bison, but there are some physical differences. If Buffalo, NY has a sister-city in Europe it would be cool to see the Wisent Wills. (although the city name would have to be wisent in that case)

Actually found 2 pronghorn logos:

Not bad; not what I had in mind but not bad.

what about the lynx or ocelot?

This of course isn't in American pro sports, but the most successful hockey club in Finland is called Ilves, which means lynx. They've got a pretty old school logo:

Someone was talking about bats. It so happens to be, that for some reason a bat is an old symbol of luck in the city of Valencia, Spain. For that reason, both of their pro soccer teams have a bat on their logos.

A rhino and hippo. I saw a show the other day on Hippos and they are some mean SOB's. Don't let their portly look fool ya. I know when the Baltimore NFL expansion was on the table Baltimore Rhinos was one of the names on the short list. I would not have had a problem with that at all.

I give you the Hutto Hippos!

Hutto High School is in Central Texas.

I think some school has Camels as their nickname, but outside of that, I've never seen any other school or team use Camels.

Other animals (or breeds of animals) I haven't seen too much, if at all:

Parrots

Tarantulas

Deer/Elk (Milwaukee Bucks, WHA's Michigan Stags, as well as a handful of schools are about it)

Goats (Aside from their relative, Rams)

Crabs (Aside from the Lakewood Blue Claws)

Dog (and one Cat) breeds:

Mastiffs

Rottweilers

Pit Bulls:

Maine Coons:

First...that has got to be the biggest :censored:in house kitty I've ever seen.

Second...has this thread now reached the point where it degenerates (as all threads of this type do) into naming animals no one else can think of, or has ever seen?

I used to have a Maine Coon named Phil. He looked exactly like that one!

Don't know of many teams named the Roosters. The only team that comes to mind is The North Adelaide Football Club, a state league Australian football team in South Australia.

Just came up with the ultimate unused sports mascot. The Blue-Footed Boobies.

These would make amazing mascots and merchandise. I'd buy stuff.
