I'm generally quite knowledgeable about animals but there are ten on there I have not heard of at all. So now I'm going to enjoy looking them up and learning. Thanks, a very tough quiz

It's not a breed*, it's not necessarily young, it's not necessarily male, it's not necessarily female. *Wikipedia: "There are many different breeds."

Thar? (the Wikipedia author seems to prefer spelling it tahr, although here in New Zealand, where it roams in the high country, it's definitely spelt thar)

I'm from NZ and I spell it Tahr. I think we are trying to get away from the Thar spelling.

Would coon count for this quiz? There's nothing in the description ruling out slang, and coon is a legitimate shortening of raccoon.

What about Topi, Pudu, Oyan and Boky. No offense it's just these quizzes are very hard to make because the full list is very extensive

I looked at a heck of a lot of the answers and thought "WTF is one of them." If you got full marks first time, you're either a zoologist or you cheated. Lol

Or a cruciverbalist. Obscure 4 letter words are our bread and butter.

That said, can we get some love for the spelling variant Cebu?

Just wanted to throw this out there, should mule be on this list? It's not a true species. If this was a 5 letter mammal quiz would tigon or liger be on the list?

"Degu" should be accepted. They are small South American rodents related to chinchillas. See here- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_degu#Prohibited_ownership_in_US_states,_Canadian_provinces,_and_New_Zealand

Fun quiz and one where apparently there are few experts taking it. My guess is that Scrabble players and crossword puzzle fans have the edge.

I know you determined a Scrabble criterium, but I think mara and degu should be included. Maybe.

Scoring a grand total of six on this quiz I cannot claim any expertise on this subject, but is not a boar a male pig? I always thought it was sows and boars based on gender....guess I'll have to look it up.

I still think 'Boar' is not correct. It should be 'Wild Boar' which is not 4 letters. A boar is a male pig.
