Offhand, I would guess the sitatunga, with three vowels.

explorer, the sitatunga has four vowels not three as you stated.
Carl, annelidous is one name with five vowels but there is others that were not even mention, yet.

Very good Ncarl, the college education pay off. LOL

There still another one that lives inside this great country with five vowels inside its one word name.

Aye-Aye they are ugly little lemur type animals. That would be my guess if we are counting the sometimes "y" rule.

buckeye, very good but my question above didn't have the to the letter y listed.

Great job Greenhead! You nailed it! Sequoia has every vowel that I listed above inside its name.
I didn't think anyone would get it.

In Hawaii they have a lot of animals with many vowels, one is a small fish. I think it is called Humuhumukunukuapua'a

I'd choose "aeolius", an atmospheric dispersion or air pollution model.

In south to central Africa coexisting with the reedbuck, blubuck, and brushbuck is the aeiobuck. Naw that's probably not right!

I thinkPAShooter has it right. His answer has eleven vowels in it. Although I read the question to call for the most DIFFERENT vowels, it actually asked for the most total vowels.

Explorer, I don't know all the German, French. Chinese, Japanese, Hawaiian, Cherokee or Apache words. Sorry about that.

Gary - I stand corrected. Thank you, and a +1 for you. Sequoia is apparently an English word, or at least an English corruption of a Cherokee word.
