By default the Gif images are not supported in android react native app. You need to set the following code to display the gif images.

Open your android/app/build.gradle file add the following code:

open android/app/build.gradle add the following  code 

dependencies: { 
     // For animated GIF support
    compile 'com.facebook.fresco:animated-base-support:0.11.0'  
    // For WebP support, including animated WebP
    compile 'com.facebook.fresco:animated-gif:0.11.0'  
    compile 'com.facebook.fresco:animated-webp:0.11.0' 
    compile  'com.facebook.fresco:webpsupport:0.11.0'  

Then you need to bundle the app again.
