Well don't I feel dumb? I missed "talon" although 76% of people got it. I got gizzard though.

exactly, really enjoyed this one. Something you COULD all now, but still have to do a bit of thinking and not just typing.

"Crustacean's outer shell" should be changed to be a little more specific, because all that came to mind was exoskeleton (which is still a legitimate solution for the clue).

Actually, an insect's outer cover is properly called a 'cuticle', exo-skeleton is too general a term to be apropriate in this quiz. It's like comparing sharks and humans, both have endo-skeletons, but completely different kinds of endo-skeletons.

really? I know cuticle as the skin right where your nail starts. You could be 100% right though, it is just news to me :)

Got everything except the crustacean shell. The closest I came was "chitin".

Some crustaceans have claws distinguished by pincer and crusher.

I tried to put "gizzard" for the turkey neck skin question, then it popped up for the bird organ one.

As someone who raised turkeys for like seven years, I totally, missed wattle the first time. Technically, the wattle hangs from the throat. I kept getting to complicated and guessing caruncles.

Am I the only one that thought of dewlap instead of wattle?

Carapace is a bit off as it refers to the "upper" portion of the exoskeleton which would be the name of the outer shell in its entirety.

Lovely quiz idea. A crustacean's exoskeleton is also called the 'cuticle'. And it would be great if 'chelae' was accepted for pincers. Thanks x

Accept crop for gizzard too! Also, talons mostly only apply to birds of prey in that they're grasping and sharp-clawed for hunting, definitely not the case with all bird feet.

The crop is where some birds store food before it goes to the gizzard to be ground up. It's a different organ so shouldn't be allowed as an alternate here.

I guess the word claw allready sort of indicates that. The question is not birds feet ( atleast not anymore,,)

Loved this quiz. I only missed three, I think this can be hard enough if you do it in your own language, so I am happy I only missed three. Wattle and carapace I had never heard of, and for flipper I had tried several things.. (fin dorsal fin, fluke which I remember from another quiz as the "tail" of whales) but seeing as (together with the before mentioned two) it is nearly the lowest, I am not the only one that had a hard time with that one. (while the answer is quite obvious)

Now I look at it again, I see wattle and it actually does ring a bell, but in my head it sounds like waddle ( but that is like how a duck walks isnt it?) Ps I LOVE the word talon. I learned at a later age (hardly learned any new words after 12/14) and I ve loved it ever since :)

Flippers are fins that contain bones. On a dolphin the "arms" are pectoral flippers. The tail "fins" have no bones, and are referred to as flukes (each half is a single fluke). xo, a marine biologist

Also, there is a difference in arms and tentacles in squid and octopuses. Octopuses have eight arms, not tentacles, and squid have eight arms and 2 tentacles (the longer ones that only have suckers on the bottom). -marine biologist
