I'm trying to get the name value from an object. I tried everything but still dont get it. Any ideas?

    Http http = new http();
    HttpRequest request = new HttpRequest();
    HttpResponse response = http.send(request);

    if(response.getStatusCode() == 200) {
        Map<String,Object> results = (Map<String,Object>)
        Object animal = (Object) results.get('animal');

The value of the response: {eats=chicken food, id=1, name=chicken, says=cluck cluck}

I'm trying to get the name value.


The {a=b, c=d, e=f} format tells you that this happens to be a Map. As such, you can cast your animal as:

Map<String, Object> animal = (Map<String, Object>)JSON.deserializeUntyped(response.getBody());

From there, you can get the name value:

String animalName = (String)animal.get('name');
