How many animals did Moses take on the ark?

Answer: “none.”

This is a trick question. Moses never made an ark to carry animals–it was Noah that did.

But, let’s answer the question: how many of each type of animal did Noah take on the ark?

You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female

Genesis 7:2

Clean animals are okay to eat, such as deer, cows, goats. Unclean animals are not okay to eat, such as pigs, lizards, horses. See Leviticus 11 for the full list.
