When Adam named animals, the Torah mentions three categories: cattle, wild animals, and birds:

"וַיִּקְרָא הָאָדָם שֵׁמוֹת לְכָל־הַבְּהֵמָה וּלְעוֹף הַשָּׁמַיִם וּלְכֹל חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה..."
"And Adam gave names to all the cattle and to the birds of the sky and to all the wild beasts..." Genesis.2.20

How didn't it mention fish and insects, such as the locust or the Leviathan?
