Clown fish can and a few more species of fish can, also limpets can.I checked fish usually are considered animals. So yes some animals can change gender.If you don't believe me than google clownfish changing gender.Clownfish live in the shelter of an anemone, and they never stray very far from their homes. Compared to other fish that travel far and wide, the limited mobility of the clownfish could put a damper on mating. But because clownfish can change sex, they're able to keep their species going. When a male clownfish pairs with another male clownfish (all clownfish are born male), one of them will simply turn female so that the two can spawn. When the female dies, the largest male in the area will take her place by turning into a female. Then, one of the more dominant nonmating males will begin mating with her. This subset of sequential hermaphrodites is known as protandrous hermaphrodites; ones that shift from female to male are known as protogynous hermaphrodites.Nature offers many other species that can swing in either gender direction for the sake of survival, from plants to sea life and even on land. In fact, this has led some Yale scientists to wonder why hermaphroditism doesn't occur more frequently. One of the reasons being explored involves the amount of time it takes to change genders; some specimens can take up to 30 percent of their lifetime to complete the transformation [source: Science Daily]. But even those species still reproduce in numbers sufficient enough to maintain their populations.

Naturally an animal cannot change its gender. Maybe with surgery an animal can, but there is not a single living thing that can naturally change gender.

I heard that there is a type of frog that can change its gender when its in a single gender enviroment. You can also change the gender of turtles but only when they are eggs.
