Abstract  As an inseparable part of language, animal idioms, which are produced in particular historical conditions and cultural environment, possess strong national characteristics and distinctive cultural connotations. They do not only have the superficial meaning but also imply the national cultural information on a deep level. Through the comparative study on the source of the animal idioms and the comparison of their various forms and connotations, this paper analyzes the reasons that cause the cultural differences between Chinese and English animal idioms, including historical conditions, religious beliefs, geographical environment and customs. This paper aims at analyzing the cultural differences through the animal idioms so that people can get a more comprehensive understanding about the animal idioms and the cultural meanings conveyed by them.
Key words: animal idioms; comparative analysis; cultural differences

Ⅰ. Introduction
 
With the profound development of the economic globalization and regional economic integration, the cultural communication between Chinese and western countries has become more and more important. Therefore, to understand the cultural differences between them is essential. Both Chinese and English have a long history, and the image of their idioms is implied, humorous, elegant and brief but vivid. These idioms are in close relation with the cultural tradition and reflect the cultural characteristics and information of the very nation. Hence, the English and Chinese idioms, especially the animal idioms, embody the great cultural differences between the two cultures.
Back in the 1920s, Smith published the book Word and Idioms, which became the representative of early research on idioms. Australian scholar Fernando published Idioms and Idiomaticity, thus helping push the research of communicative function of language to a newer and more outstanding position.
Some foreign linguists classify the animal idioms according to the animals’ behaviors. In the book Cool Cats, Top Dogs, and Other Beastly Expressions, Ammer sorts animal idioms into those about pets, birds, farm animals, park animals and animals in water. 从动物习语看中西方文化差异:http://www.lwfree.cn/yingyu/20190929/40143.html
