Is "ass" the technical name? I think we should remove it otherwise.

Yes, not only is it the technical term for the animal, the animal is the primary definition of the word: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ass

What kind of animal is the "goa" ?

I am not able to find it on the internet.

All, what I could find is the state of india called Goa and its wildlife.

Please provide a link of a picture.

Milk jugs may "secrete milk" but are not warm blooded and do not have fur or bear live young. So that's a hard NO on the snowy milk owl.

Is ape an animal species? It's a branch of the primates.

Level 59
Feb 5, 2018
It doesn't say it has to be a species. It just says it can't be any more specific than a species (so no male, female or young animals and no breeds). It can be less specific.

There is no animal "goa". Goa is a place, and a gaur is the official animal of it. If we're wrong, cite a source?
