Is a bluebottle a jellyfish? Those things sting...

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.

Totally agree. That was what I put in first.

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,

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.

"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

I'm surprised not that many people know blackbird. It was one of the first ones I got!

Bird should be accepted for a mammal that flies, as well as bat.

Take these broken wings and learn TO fly, not learn in fly

I don't know what the Blackbird clue was trying to say. I kept thinking of "Take these broken wings" song by Mr. Mister

It's from the song of the same name on the Beatles' White Album

Venomous is spelled wrong on the quiz. And buffalo aren't bison.
Aug 1, 2013
Quizmaster
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.

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.

"Baboon" for close chimpanzee relative?

Surely there could be a better clue than that for badger, especially for those of us who are not American
