I knew when I saw that one someone would devolve to the lowest denominator. Too bad we can't even play quizzes without someone being rude or prejudice against other people's opinions.

And in the end, the one who started this looks the most asinine. Congratulations there, Bob!

I'm really annoyed with myself for not getting crow. I knew crows, ravens, magpies, etc. were corvids. I also should have known the mouse. :/

No, an eel is a fish?

Yes. These were all just Latin -> English translations, and I knew eel was Anguilla anguilla, so that was my guess.

Just nitpicking a little, but I think mites and scorpions would also be acceptable answers for the arachnoid question. Great quiz though! :)

Missed murine, anserine and vermian. In hindsight I have seen murine before, Would have got it if it was multiple choice (even with 15 options) the goose one rings no bells whatsoever. And the vermian makes a lot of sense, it nearly sounds the same ( especially if you use a sort of german accent, or tight lips/clenched jaw). I obviously tried things related to vermin but didnt get around to worms.

Interesting stats btw, steep drop from vulpine and down. And avian scored MUCH higher than I would have thought, above porcine and taurine! I thought most people were familiar with porc and red bull ;). As high on the food pyramid as pizza and cola.

(most will know taurus from the zodiac and minotaur I suspect though, but that was less funny :P)
