Animals in Super Sentai (2013 Edition)

Contrary to popular belief, not many Super Sentai are animal-inspired. Out of the 37 series, there is only about 19 or so series that has animals, mythical creatures or dinosaurs. I have updated this intensively since the first time I posted this in 2008 and plan to make a new post every year when there are more animals added.

If you are looking for the animal from Power Rangers, I am referring to the original intention in Super Sentai. Power Rangers are notorious for changing the animal's identity.
