I was impressed with the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, as it had a verse that mentioned the name of the animal. Is there a book that simulates this idea, i.e. a book that quotes the verse of all the different animals mentioned somewhere in Tana"ch?

  • I think Prof. Feliks's book (I think it's called Hatzomeach V'hachay Shebamishna) does so for mishnayos, but not for Tanach. – msh210 Jul 4 '14 at 5:14
  • @sh210 Prof. Feliks has a similar book for Tanakh, called חי וצומח בתורה, which has been translated into English – הנער הזה Jul 4 '14 at 5:35

    @msh210 Indeed, the wild animals volume was released earlier this year, and is excellent. – magicker72 Nov 4 '15 at 18:28

The Torah Encyclopedia of the Animal Kingdom by R. Dr. Natan Slifkin seems to be exactly what you are looking for. It contains a chapter on each of 26 animals, filled with verses that mention the animals as well as statements of the Sages about the animals. It also has lots of other information, plus it has plenty of high quality photographs accompanying each animal.

You can read the chapters on the leopard and the hyrax for free, here and here.

    Note that this is only the first volume of a planned multi-volume work. – Joel K Jan 25 at 4:15
