Dammit, just when I got that "Narwhals" song out of my head, you have to go and mention narwhals again. It's causing such commotion!

I am tempted to look it up, but I have willpower (well a combo of that and being lazy, works great not to get addicted to stuff, if going to the supermarket (or more darker places) to get what you crave is more trouble than it is worth.

Only thing that is hasnt worked for so far is quizsites haha (and games to an extent) but well you dont have to leave the house for that. If I had to go yo the library to go on jetpunk, I certainly wouldnt have spend the crazy amount of hours on here I have now. Which us atleast 5 hours per day for the last 11 months. (And many days a lot longer than that). Well minus 1 or 2 months when I was very ill.

I know a lot about animals, so usually the animal quizzes aren't too hard for me. This one was!

Never heard of nutria and nene over here (europe) and I missed needlefish though I have heard of it. But this was indeed the tougher one of the series.

One would think that "naked" was just a description of the mole rat. One would think.

So as not to be accused of nitpicking, I won't point out the spelling mistake in one of the clues :-)

I'll point it out. In "it's name" it's not "it's", it's "its". (In "it's not", it's "it's" as it's supposed to be.)

He/she (the above nit) is right, it's "its", not "it's", in "despite its name".

Seven out of the first nine, then absolutely flummoxed by the last six. Looking at the eight I missed, I wouldn't have got many of them. A few possibly but that's a tough quiz.

"Despite it's name it's not a toad" - is more confusing than helpful. More or less same for ""naked" sea slug".

Got nudibranch, they are beautiful, go check them out! Never heard of nene and nutria. Didnt get needlefish and nematode, though it was on the tip of my tongue. Well not literally thankfully!

I only got nudibranch due to the recently released “True Facts about the Nudibranch”; how serendipitous!

Out of all the animal letter quizzes, this was by far the hardest and most confusing.
