How many animals were on the ark?

Genesis 6
19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.
20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.
 21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.

Genesis 7
2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

From these passages we learn the Noah was to bring.

  • two of every sort, male and female
  • fowls
  • cattle
  • creeping thing
  • seven of every clean beast (male and female)
  • two of every unclean beast
  • fowls of the air also seven (male and female)
Every breed of dog can be created from about 10 basic breeds

Every breed of chicken we have today origionated from the red jungle fowl and the grey jungle fowl.
