Because "fawn" and "nimph" actually sound the same as the correct versions. They asked for the chance to still be correct with an L omitted in the other word. Calm down. Sheesh.

I thought a half goat half man was a Satir. Also, the clue for Leprechaun is a little weird. I would venture that not many think of Leprechauns as fairies.

There are indeed similarities between the (Roman) Satyr and the Faun, but the F clue tells you which one is required. Maybe people don't think of the leprechaun as a fairy, but it is in fact a correct description!

Sorry to be picky back at you, but that's why I put Roman in parentheses, Llew11. The Greek satyr is part horse/man, but in Roman representations it is a man with a goat's ears, tail, legs and horn.

kiwirage, I think you mixed up centaur and satyr. The Greek human-horse hybrid is the centaur. Satyrs in Greek mythology is the goat-human hybrid with the legs, ears, horns, and tail of a goat, and human torso, arms, and head. Satyrs are called fauns in Roman mythology.

No, I didn't mix up centaur and satyr; a centaur in Greek mythology is half-man, half-horse. The satyr in traditional Greek mythology has horse-like features, which is why I said "part horse/man". Early depictions include a horse's tail and ears, among other things. The Romans had fauns, very similar creatures, but with goat-like features. There's a good article about satyrs on wikipedia which describes how confusion between the two became prevalent, to the point of satyrs being commonly referred to as having goat-like features. It's a hot mess, really.

I wish more quizzes contained "hard" or "obscure" answers. Making sure that quizzes are all answered completely by everyone is, IMO, misguided. Getting 100% correct should be the exception, not the rule. Make us earn that 5 points.

I may not remember Taniwha this time, but it'll now be rattling around in the back of my head in the future. Eventually I'll remember it, just like I eventually picked up abattoir for slaughterhouse.

Because alternate spellings often exist for very old words like "sphinx". I thought of "sphynx" first, as well, because I've seen it spelled that way many times, and not in reference to the domestic cat breed.

I've seen rabbits with growths on their heads which resemble antlers, but they are actually tumors caused by the papillomavirus. That could be the basis of the jackalope legends. (Our deer season just closed, and someone in our town killed a six-point doe. That could be a new legend in the making.)

Quetzalcoatl is a deity, not really a "creature". It's not a category of being like the others. If you needed a Q "qilin" would have been a better choice- the dragon/ox/deer hybrid of Chinese mythology.
