The horse ones I knew, but I blanked on most of them. Forgot kangaroo (which is misspelled, btw). Didn't know male cat, male pig (thought it was a separate species, frankly), male duck, female donkey, and young pigeon. Swans would have been a good one to put in there-- most people don't know those.

wild boars are not a separate species, they are pigs that are not domesticated or that have become feral.

Not exactly, Kalbahamut. Wild boar are considered a separate species even though they are the ancestors of domestic pigs. Domesticated pigs are sometimes considered a subspecies and sometimes considered a separate species. Domestic pigs which go wild are feral pigs. A boar is the name of a male hog whether wild or domestic, but in the wild boar species there are wild boar sows, wild boar boars, and wild boar piglets. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_boar In Arkansas they are called Razorbacks, and they like to play football. Whoo, pig, sooey!

bothered me that the female cow isn't a heifer.
Nov 6, 2010

Added that answer, but strictly, the term heifer only applies to a young, female cow.

Hahaha! I ut veal too at first just as a joke...but half hoping it would work. Luckily I remembered calf at the last second.

Veal is the meat from a young calf. Light-colored veal has been fed only milk.

Those aren't Kangaroos in the photo btw, theyre Wallabies.
May 23, 2011

Yep. They look like Grey's Wallabies, so they're not only not kangaroos, they're extinct.

add in a female young horse (filly) and a castrated male horse (gelding).
Jun 3, 2011

why would you add in "castrated male horse"

If you ask for the name of a male animal, the correct answer depends on whether it is castrated or breedable. Since the clues were non-specific many of the animals mentioned could have additional words accepted - young females include gilt (pigs), heifer (cattle), and filly (horse). Males which have been castrated include barrow (pigs) steer (cattle), gelding, (horse), and wether (sheep and goats). Young goats are also known as doelings or bucklings depending on gender.

Fun and easy quiz. The only ones I missed were Jenny, Drake and Squab, which I never would have known about. Very interesting.

Technically a caterpillar isn't a young butterfly. They are two completely different insects.

noooo caterpillar are butterfly larvae.
Jun 28, 2012

i agree caterpillars can be moths as well
Aug 31, 2013

moths are nocturnal butterflies, so caterpillar is correct
Feb 18, 2014

a bit more of a distinction than that. moths' wings fold back when relaxed. butterflies can't do that.

Doe, a deer, a female deer. I also got drake from Conjunction Junction. Haha they should put in female dog.

I had to look it up. Is it puffling? I hope so, because it really is a cute name for a cute animal!

Tadpoles and Caterpillars are not young frogs and butterflies, they are the larval stage of those animals. I thought that boar was wrong, too, but I looked it up and was mistaken. Apparently "wild boar" and "boar" have just become synonymous in common usage. Learn something new every day. :)

I was about to argue for pony to be accepted for young horse, but apparently a pony is not what I always believed.

A male cattle could be a bull or a steer, depending on if it has been castrated or not. Similarly, depending on castration, a male horse is either a stallion or a gelding and a male pig is a boar or a barrow.

All of them with 4:02. :) A female cat is called a queen, and a young platypus is called a puggle.

A young dog is a Pup. 'Puppy' is a childish derivative.

I can't figure out why they have "colt" but not "filly". Also, if it were up to me I'd include "ox" and "gelding" also, but I guess we're not wanting to address the topic of animal castration here, are we?

Maybe allow steer for male cattle?
Jun 11, 2014

To be more specific, a young male horse is a colt and a young female horse is a filly.

Anybody else old enough to remember the drake's tail haircuts from the 50s? I think they were also called duck tails.
