What about "jenny" for mule and "colt" for pony?
+2
level 48
Jul 11, 2014
Only people who know much about horses are likely to be familiar with the terms "colt" and "jenny" (especially "jenny"), and those people are considerably less likely to be googling the difference between horses and ponies, or mules and donkeys.

I've heard "Jenny" but I don't think I've ever heard of a "Colt".

Jenny makes no sense because it is a female donkey. That's like googling the difference between a person and a girl. It would work if one googled the difference between a jenny and a hinny, or a jack and a jenny. Pony no longer appears on the quiz, but seems to me that colt would make sense if it did. I'm surprised that colt isn't more well-known.

There is no difference between a panther and a jaguar. Panthera is a species which includes lions tigers leopards and jaguars etc. However the word panther is used when talking about leopards and jaguars in different places in the world. For example a black panther in Asia is a leopard while a black panther in the Americas is a jaguar. Panther is also used to describe cougars (other names include Puma, and Mountain lion). All in all there is no difference between a panther and a jaguar as a panther can be a jaguar but can also be a cougar or leopard too.

The difference would be the colour then. Most black panthers retain the markings of a leopard - look closely at some photos and you can still see the 'spots'. It's just that a black panther has had the pattern filled in. And that might be an interesting thing for someone to Google and learn from.

ok, so you can butcher the spelling of a lot of things in jetpunk and still get credit; however, you couldn't accept "wolly mammoth". I know it's only one "o" short, but come on. You know i knew the answer.
+1
level 56
Sep 7, 2018
Yeah, but that's not phonetic. If you were missing an L (i.e., "wooly," it would still sound right, so that's a reasonable misspelling. "Wolly" doesn't sound the same as "woolly," so it's not a likely misspelling. You're basically asking the quizmaster to accept every possible misspelling that is off by one letter, which sounds like a lot of work for QM.

how the hell is a buzzard like a vulture?

level 67
Sep 13, 2018
People read/hear of buzzards feeding on carrion, and the first familiar bird that comes to mind is a vulture. So they associate them without ever knowing what a buzzard looks like.
