Also, I had to group all the antelopes together. There are about 100 different species of them, and they are very loosely related to each other.

I went into this quiz getting ready to name all the dik-diks, impalas, elands, and springboks I could think of... was glad that wasn't necessary. Also took me far too long to understand why Hippo wasn't being accepted.

@Malbaby Actually no. The genus Equus evolved in North America, but the species Equus ferus, the one that humans domesticated, evolved in the steppes of Eurasia. There was a subspecies that “returned” to North America. All that was only possible due to the land bridge connecting what is today Alaska and Siberia. Interesting side fact: The North American population of wild horses was hunted to extinction in prehistoric times, which is why the natives had never seen those animals before the Europeans arrived.

Can't exactly agree with that reasoning sulfuratus, if the Equus evolved in North America then horses are originally native to North America not Africa. (sorry I deleted my first comment by mistake)

They are deceptively light. They are mostly air (like a balloon). But no, seriously, they should definitely be added

They can be found in the Answer Stats. Those excluded seem to be the ones that would give away the name of the animal.

Please, when you provide some imperial units in the instructions, give us also the metric equivalent. More and more people here come from countries that don't use the imperial system. Thanks!

Are hippos not native to Africa? I would think they could easily get over 100 pounds.
