LauraM Posted October 2, 2013 Report Share Posted October 2, 2013 The English language has many idioms that involve animals in some way. Some of them are quite colorful. What are some of the ones you have heard of and that are your favorites?Here are a few for starters."The lion's share" -- The larger or better part of something. "He got the lion's share of the attention at the party.""Let sleeping dogs lie" -- Avoid starting trouble, or leave something as it is."He was going to bring up the topic at the meeting, but he decided to let sleeping dogs lie." "Let the cat out of the bag" -- Telling a secret."We weren't going to announce the trip, but my cousin let the cat out of the bag."Please add to the list!
