When you hear the word calf, what's the first baby animal that comes to mind? For most people, they would think of a baby cow. Perhaps, surprisingly, a "calf" is the name for lots of baby animals - ranging in size from the cat-sized aardvark to the mighty whale! The word "calf" is also the term used to describe a chunk of ice that breaks from a glacier or iceberg.
But first, let's clarify something...
The word "calf" is used to describe one baby. The word "calves" is used to describe multiples. Some people spell it differently, using the term "calfs" but that is a less common usage.
