This quiz prompted me to look up the difference between a tarsier and a bushbaby, as I'd always assumed they were the same thing. Thank you, Quizmaster - got to learn something new and also look at lots of adorable photos of bushbabies :)

Bushbaby sounds sweet, our translation for tarsier is ghost-animal (or ghoul/phantom etc). Btw I always mix em up with ayeayes which we call finger-animal (and funnily the name tarsier comes from the long tarsal bones), because well they look even creepier haha. Both are lemuroideae btw.

Edit:ah and I just found out lemur is actually ghost in latin (wait I think I knew that already, but completely forgotten it)

The mountain background is there for a reason. Secondly, domestic goats are a little thin and don't have a lot of fur, unlike the mountain goat. Learned that from living in the Sub-Himalayas, where the Himalayan mountain goat is different from the above two, too.

it's still a goat. why not insist on naming the subspecies of giraffe if the quiz is that pedantic?

Despite the name, the mountain goat is of a different genus. The closest they get is that they're of the same subfamily, but that's shared with animals like sheep or ibex.

@hirsutebodkin ... Is the prarie dog a type of dog? I actually would have gotten full marks if "squirrel" was accepted, since the animal is a type of ground squirrel.

Strange indeed. It looks like its face had been blurred out, so as to make it unrecognizable.

Which is why in French, we have a saying that says "blind as a mole" (instead of bat in English).

If I had to guess, they have a very good sense of smell. They probably find other moles this way.

Except a mountain goat is not actually a goat (i.e., a member of the genus Capra), despite its name.

"Tarsus monkey" is also correct for "tarsier." It is so named for it's prominent tarsus bone.

Every kid learns it's at the beginning of the dictionary because of the double A.

People should learn, not insist on everyone else accepting what is wrong.

Jaguars can be black, but then they are typically called black panthers. To add confusion, leopards can also be all black and be called a panther.

Usually, though, jaguars look like the above image
