    How do you say "animal print" in Spanish, such as a shirt or purse with animal print? I've tried to find and figure out a good translation...but nothing sounds right.

    Thank so much.

    Aunque por aquí en el Río de la Plata también se dice "me compré una remera de animal print", sin traducir.
    Creo que es porque es más general ya que al decir "estampado de leopardo/zebra/tigre" es un estampado específico.

    I agree with deuruguay. At least, in Argentina, we also keep the term in English.

    Ja ja ja ja ja ja how funny, in Chile and Argentina they say it in english.

    In México we say it "estampado de animalitos" (in diminutive almost always).

    Por "estampado de animalitos" yo entiendo otra cosa, algo como esto.

    This phrase makes me think of footprints or animal tracks, rather than animal print. Does it refer to both, though? (Just asking...obviously if I knew all the answers, I wouldn't have started the thread! :) )

    Tienes razón Leona. De hecho, hasta antes de ver sus links, yo pensé que a eso se refería Screamingautumn.

    Entonces, a lo que ella se refiere específicamente, en México le llamamos "estampado de...". Bolsa con "estampade de tigre", tapete con "estampado de cebra", cartera con "estampado de leopardo", etc.
