they are kangaroos that live in the trees, about the size of a koala. Fascinating things! :) They eat the leaves and are mainly in the northern tropical rainforests.

That one with mountain and lowland is quite mistakable..

There is also a mountain and a lowland form of tapirs, anoas and some others...

Loads of more mountain ones like lion, goat, and others, no idea how many of those have a lowland counterpart though. But not a very distinguishable name

Never heard of an 'Antilopine Kangaroo'. I've lived and worked all over Australia and never heard anyone shout "Oh look, there goes an Antilopine Kangaroo!"

lol, I guessed a few things, frogs , other stuff sloths, etc and I have heard of a read Kangaroo so I tried it haha

I admit I have never heard of tree or antilopine .. I guess its not common in Australia, not like dropbears, redbacks, funnel webs, or the snakes that are all quite toxic to us humans if they happen to bite us.

Got few of em...could've added silverback for gorilla-the best clue i guess
Level 82
Jan 30, 2019
I think silverback is just the name of the older gorilla who is leader of the troop, however as pointed out above as it stands tapir is a valid answer, so maybe add cross river for gorilla

Brain dart of the day:

Reading through this quiz quickly I tried "frog" for Hermit.

Double brain dart: when reading your comment I was like: huh I had that thought as well for some reason, why would that be? Had to Google hermit frog to understand the connection :P
