Is a bluebottle a jellyfish? Those things sting...
Nov 3, 2012
They are like jellyfish, but not quite. The sting from a box jellyfish, on the other hand, is said to be so painful, victims scream in pain even while unconscious.

Bowerbird should also be accepted for New Guinea bird with spectacular markings and elaborate mating displays. Many have spectacular markings and have some of the most interesting mating displays of any bird.
Nov 3, 2012
Totally agree. That was what I put in first.
Oct 31, 2013
Bowerbird will work now.

Male cow is like saying male woman. Cow is the female bovine or cattle and bull is male. The female sex of the follwing are all cows: elephants, Buffalo, Bison, Elk, Moose, Caribou, Domesticated Bovine, Whales, Rhinoceroses and Walruses,
Nov 3, 2012
But we know what is meant by the term "male cow"! By the way....we also know what is meant by "male woman", but that's another story!
Nov 3, 2012
I agree with you @AUSCUBA ! The clue would be more accurate if it read "Male Bovine". "Male cow" is blatantly incorrect.
Nov 3, 2012
Blatantly incorrect? Hardly.

2. More generally, any domestic bovine regardless of sex or age.

Nov 5, 2012
I have to disagree with you Quizmaster. In fact the definition you list is the very reason why "cow" is not accurate in describing a female bovine. It uses the word "generally" which indicates that while most people use the term "cow" universally, it doesn't mean it is technically correct.
Nov 5, 2012
Born and raised in Dairy farm country in Northern Wisconsin, I feel as though I am qualified to comment on this subject. The animal species is a Bovine or Cattle (pl). Generally speaking, they are called cows or a herd of cows even when bulls are among them. But techically speaking, they are bovine. A cow is a female bovine and a bull is a male bovine, not a male cow...technically.
Nov 6, 2012
@GymnastPunk: More precise? Sure. More accurate? No. "Cow" has multiple meanings, but from the context it should be clear which one applies.
Jun 23, 2013
How do you spell pedantic again?
Dec 15, 2014
"Blue whale" could be an acceptable answer for "male cow"
Nov 5, 2012
I'm with JDWI on this one. A herd of cattle is often called "cows" even with bulls in there. And I don't know about any of you but I instantly knew the answer when I saw "male cow" (I wasn't thinking of any whale either). I think the quizmaster can safely keep it exactly how it is

You must be a hoot at parties

I'm surprised not that many people know blackbird. It was one of the first ones I got!
Nov 3, 2012
Bird should be accepted for a mammal that flies, as well as bat.
Nov 4, 2012
Er...birds arent mammals
Nov 4, 2012
The quiz asked for animals, not specifically mammals.
Apr 3, 2013
But the clue "Flying mammal" does...
Apr 5, 2013
Guess "Sherlock" isn't too keen on the clues....
Mar 22, 2014
Yeah...Larry Bird
Nov 6, 2012
If he ever left the ground, maybe. :)
Jun 28, 2013
16/20! not bad for a fifth grader. I only missed Blackbird, Bonobo, Bird-of-Paradise, & for some stupid reason, Bass!
May 2, 2013
i'm a 3rd grader and i got all 20 with 1:30 left. BABOOSH!
Dec 28, 2014
Take these broken wings and learn TO fly, not learn in fly
May 13, 2013
May 14, 2013
I don't know what the Blackbird clue was trying to say. I kept thinking of "Take these broken wings" song by Mr. Mister
May 13, 2014
It's from the song of the same name on the Beatles' White Album
Jul 15, 2014
Venomous is spelled wrong on the quiz. And buffalo aren't bison.
Aug 1, 2013
Fixed the spelling of venomous. I've spelled it wrong at least 10 times on this site at some point! But if you don't think that Americans call bison "buffalo", then you haven't spent much time there.
Aug 2, 2013
I am actually so mad at myself for missing "bat." You have no idea how much time I wasted trying to think of that one.
Jan 18, 2014
I'm surprised beaver isn't on here while some much less common animals are...

"Baboon" for close chimpanzee relative?
Aug 21, 2014
Surely there could be a better clue than that for badger, especially for those of us who are not American
Nov 23, 2014
It's kind of hilarious that I spent forever trying to remember the name of sugar gliders, because that's what the "flying mammal" clue made me think of, but never once considered "bat."
Jan 16, 2015
To trick people up, you should add Blob Fish.
