How to remove spaces between items in an R list

I create a list animalList by using list() function. When displaying the list, there're unequal spaces among items in the list. How can I make them appear the same in size? For example: I have the following script


animalList <- list(c("Chicken","Dog","Cat","Monkey","Pig","Ant"))
#> [[1]]
#> [1] "Chicken" "Dog"     "Cat"     "Monkey"  "Pig"     "Ant"
#> List of 1
#>  $ : chr [1:6] "Chicken" "Dog" "Cat" "Monkey" ...
animalList <- list("Chicken","Dog","Cat","Monkey","Pig","Ant")
#> List of 6
#>  $ : chr "Chicken"
#>  $ : chr "Dog"
#>  $ : chr "Cat"
#>  $ : chr "Monkey"
#>  $ : chr "Pig"
#>  $ : chr "Ant"

This appears to be just how the list prints in R. It is not intended to be used in a paper or presentation.

dat2 <-   tibble(aa  = c("Chicken", "Dog", "Cat", "Monkey", "Pig", "Ant"))

will give you a totally different print-out.

What are you trying to achieve with the list? Typically an R output is formatted in some way for presentation.
