Once again, this quiz is based on original research. It was not easy to make, and there may be errors. Please let me know what you think!

"brown" and "polar" were not accepted for ursidae

I don't think they need to be. You can say "panda", but you don't say "polar".

Where's the Sloth Bear? - haven't checked but I would have thought it would make this list.

If sun bears are on the list (the smallest species of bear), sloth bears definitely should be.

What? No, both are members of the same family, Bovidae, which includes all cloven-hoofed ruminants.

Added sloth bear. Muskoxen are not native to Asia according to the map on the Wikipedia article.

Well, they were, but the recent populations originate from a repopulation project on the Taymyr peninsula.

The muskox may not be native to Asia, but the Takin certainly is and is of similar size. It was once thought to be related to the muskox, but more recent research has destroyed that theory.

I was about to complain about the cassowary, being an oceanian animal, but maybe those on Seram island can qualify as asian...

Fun! Are Cassowaries in Asia though? I thought they were only in Australia.

They are also in New Guinea (which considered weither Asian, Oceanic, or on the border) and a few islands around.

What about the serow tribe and takins? Are they not distinct enough to warrant their own mention? Seems like we get quite specific with Bos. Yet forget an entire tribe and genus that aren't closely related to anything else on the list.

What's your take on the Arabian Oryx? Extinct and re-introduced, but definitely wild and native. :)

Really nice quiz! I dont get why it only got 3stars (maybe they scored low? I only got 22 right but that gave me 4 stars, so I guess people didnt do that well on this quiz)

Perhaps add cassowari as a type-in? Plus maybe it is an idea to drop the "bear" anybody that is typing polar is gonna know the answer, so it is just about extra time. And it is not like the black or brown are (part of) any of the other answers, so no accidental right answers.

It is fine the way it is, but I too nearly gave up on bears, after black didnt work. We are so used to minimal answers being accepted :)

never even heard of the bottom 3, and wouldnt have thought of tapir python and the never remembered sloth bear
