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.

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!

I agree with you @AUSCUBA ! The clue would be more accurate if it read "Male Bovine". "Male cow" is blatantly incorrect.

Blatantly incorrect? Hardly.

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

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.

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.

@GymnastPunk: More precise? Sure. More accurate? No. "Cow" has multiple meanings, but from the context it should be clear which one applies.

Snoopy would look good on the seal, but he wouldn't be a good bird. He was really unlucky at flying in the Halloween episode. Remember what happened to his Sopwith Camel?

"Blue whale" could be an acceptable answer for "male cow"

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

No, blue whale wouldn't be an acceptable answer since it is not specifically male. It is true that female whales are called cows, but then the answer would have to be the term for a male whale, which is ... "bull".

I thought the males of them are all bulls so the male of cow is bull just as the femal of bull is cow.

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.

The name of the species is the American Bison, but they're called buffalo too. The name is interchangeable.

Oh, trust me, that clue doesn't give Americans an unfair advantage. State animals aren't really common knowledge to anyone living outside of the state in question. But I agree that there are tons of other clues for badgers. Like a mascot of the yellow house of a certain School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But that would also be hard, most likely.
