Glanced at your comment and thought it said Game of Thrones instead of Gardens of Time, and was really confused, cause even though I don't watch GoT I was pretty sure there weren't any crosswalks in it.

How would people automatically know that it's referring to the same kind of crosswalk? If you've never heard it called that, I don't think it's weird to not think of it.

Most crosswalks in America don't have the stripes, it's just two lines to walk between at the intersection. The ones not at an intersection are more likely to have the stripes so drivers are more likely to notice them.

The possum and the opossum are different beasties. Possums are native to Australia (and Papua New Guinea) and opossums are North American critters.

Possums are not considered cute in NZ. They like all land mammals (apart from a couple of species of bat) are an introduced species and are responsible for the destruction of much of our native flaura and fauna. Along with being carriers of bovine tuberculous. They eat around 100,000 tonnes of native forest every night. We invest heavily in eradication programmmes and hope to have killed all 30 Million of them in the next 25 years

And the phrase is "play possum" not "play opossum." Though, in the southern US, where opossums are plenty, they say "play 'possum" and call them 'possums.

I was under the impression both were pronounced the same, or at least that the "o" in "opossum" has so little emphasis it's indistinguishable. Then again, I am from the south.

It is technically called an opossum, but they are very frequently just called "possums." It's sort of like how people often just say "rhino," or "hippo," or "gator," rather than "rhinoceros," "hippopotamus," or "alligator." And the saying is "playing possum," so you wouldn't say "playing opossum" any more than you would call the game "Hungry Hungry Hippopotomuses."

+2
level 66
May 20, 2016
not really a pastime so much as just the way in which they are killed. It's been seen as cruel by a lot of people. So perhaps they need to find a more humane way to kill them. But the seal populations have actually grown in recent years, and they are using every part of the seal, not just killing them for fun.

May 20, 2016
you may or may not be right. but I have definitely heard of cow tipping and I have never heard of fly tipping. how do you tip a fly? Also, the quiz is about mammals, so a fly doesn't really fit

In Britain, at least, fly tipping is a phrase used to describe the illegal dumping of a large(ish) amount of rubbish, usually at a road side or on parkland. The worst offenders tend to be tradesmen who would otherwise have to pay to dispose of their building site waste and householders who can't be bothered to drive to the nearest council facility to get rid of their old furniture and white goods (refrigerators, washing machines etc.) It most definitely doesn't fit the clue!

opposum should work because it's the sub category of the possums, which is actually the species that "plays dead"

It doesnt matter that there is an animal somewhere that is called opposum in some places. The phrase is play possum. So everything else is incorrect.
