Quizmaster might want to change the Ivory-Billed example for the woodpecker question, since they're probably extinct. While there have been a couple "possible" sightings in the last 15 years, the most recent undisputed sightings date to the early to mid 20th century.

So's the passenger pigeon. Doesn't stop it from being a clue.

Alas. Although, being declared extinct doesn't necessarily mean that it is - it just means that biological science has given up hope in finding a living example. But it the case of the Ivory Billed Woodpecker, my guess is that they made the right call.

You should accept Jellies as an answer for Jellyfish since they aren't actually fish. Otherwise great quiz.

They aren't jelly either. Guinea pig is not a pig and hundreds of other examples don't disqualify the name.

These cnidarians are commonly called both jellyfish and jellies, so both should be accepted.

That might be so, but YurisRevenges argument makes no sense

I've never heard of a fainting goat, but I just looked up some videos of them and they are really funny.

Yes it is in the same family as dolphins, despite being called a killer "whale". It is considered an oceanic dolphin.

I wondered about this as well. Killer whales / orcas are most definitely dolphins, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're not also whales.

- Wikipedia page for 'whale':

"They are an informal grouping within the infraorder Cetacea, which usually excludes dolphins and porpoises."

- Wikipedia page for 'orca':

"The killer whale or orca is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family."

Indian elephants are a subspecies of Asian elephants, along with Sri Lankan elephants and another one that I can't remember.

I hope nobody ever tells a hairy woodpecker it's meant to have feathers. The poor wee soul would be soooo embarrassed 🤭

Can you accept bunny in addition to rabbit? I know it's easy to just type rabbit after but I like the word bunny
