Zoology (rarely spelled zoölogy) is the biological discipline which involves the study of non-human animals.

The word zoology comes from Greek ζῴον, zoon ("animal"), and λογία, -logy ("the study of"), from λόγος, word, speech.

The pronunciation of "zoology" is [zoʊˈɑləʤɪ], however it is common to hear this word mispronounced as [zuˈɑləʤɪ], due to the familiarity of the word "zoo" which is an abbreviation of "zoological garden."
