a bit more of a distinction than that. moths' wings fold back when relaxed. butterflies can't do that.

True, both moths and butterflies are called "caterpillars" when in their larval stage. However, moths are not a type of butterfly, although they are closely related. Since the quiz asks for the "baby" (aka pre-adult) name of butterflies, "caterpillar" is fine. If it was the other way around, and it gave us "caterpillar" and asked what it would end up being, then either butterfly OR moth would work. Unless it specified a caterpillar in a cocoon or in a chrysalis, in which case....well, never mind.

Tadpoles and Caterpillars are not young frogs and butterflies, they are the larval stage of those animals. I thought that boar was wrong, too, but I looked it up and was mistaken. Apparently "wild boar" and "boar" have just become synonymous in common usage. Learn something new every day. :)

A tadpole is a young frog, young meaning early in life.

Larva is basically the baby of that animal. So what's your point?

Seems like a significant difference to me. There's no metamorphosis taking place between goslings and geese. They are always geese. If someone pointed at a caterpillar and said "is that a butterfly?" the answer would be no.

Tadpoles are young frogs, then they are called froglets while they still have their tales. So, tadpole is the correct answer.

Tadpoles... maybe. But it doesn't make sense to me. Again.. if someone pointed at a tadpole and said "is that a frog?" The answer would be "no, that's a tadpole. Some day it will turn in to a frog." And the caterpillar/butterfly distinction is even less ambiguous. There is a dramatic metamorphosis in the latter case. On the other hand, if someone pointed at a calf and asked "is that a cow?" You could straight up just say "yes" without clarification. I would never call a maggot a fly... it simply isn't one. Even if later on the organism that was a maggot transforms into a fly.

I tried bear first and didnt get why it wasnt accepted. Cause it is beer in my language which is the exact same word as used for bear.

As for the other part of your comment I felt the same way. I let it go, but really a caterpillar is not a young butterfly, the first day the butterfly is a butterfly it is a young butterfly. It is the same animal though. But a diferent form/stadium of it. If a young caterpillar is a butterfly it should be able to fly.

I think the maggots are a good example. Noone would call them flies.

(thinking about it I came up with this, hope it makes it clearer and not more confusing. It is like calling a one year old human an adult, just because at one point in his life he will be one does not mean he is one now)>

Or if you make it a fable/childrens story: the squirrel asked the butterfly how long he has been a butterfly. The butterflies' answer will be the number of days since he came out of his chrysalis. "This is my first day as a butterfly, before that I was a caterpillar"

A male cattle could be a bull or a steer, depending on if it has been castrated or not. Similarly, depending on castration, a male horse is either a stallion or a gelding and a male pig is a boar or a barrow.

If it asked for a young human male you would put 'Boy', not Eunuch.

But eunuchs are not common. Most male farm animals are castrated unless raised for breeding stock, so their names are as common if not more so.

I can't figure out why they have "colt" but not "filly". Also, if it were up to me I'd include "ox" and "gelding" also, but I guess we're not wanting to address the topic of animal castration here, are we?

In my language we call a castrated cat a you-know-what-(tom)cat. I think it originated in a cartoon (drawn not animated).

Female deer can also be a Hind - depends on species - e.g. Red Deer are Hinds not Does Also as mentioned above a young frog could also be a Froglet - in-between tadpole and frog - still a young frog

Caterpillar and tadpole are not really young butterflies and frogs respectively. They are larvae and are, I believe, classed separately. Nobody looks at a tadpole and says "oh look, there's a young frog".

I remember my grandpa teaching me this: "What do you call the baby of a jack and a mare? A mule. What do you call the baby of a stallion horse and a jenny? A hinny. What do you call the baby of a mule and a hinny? Nothing."(Mules and hinnys are nearly always sterile.)
