Prophet Noah, known as Nuh in the Qur'an, is one of many famous prophets of the Abrahamic religions. With the iconic ark that carried his followers and a pair of each animal! Some stories estimate that he may have had 1,500 animals on board his ship from various categories including amphibians, mammals and reptiles.
And We certainly sent Noah to his people, and he remained among them a thousand years minus fifty years, and the flood seized them while they were wrongdoers. But We saved him and the companions of the ship, and We made it a sign for the worlds. (29:14-15)
