Nice one! Somehow missed the -sters, then got one from each pair, besides two.

I've watched too many cooking shows, one of the first ones I got was the Q-one. They are always cooking that. Missed the other one of the pair. They should cook more of those.

Also would've expected turkey to be much higher up. Considering the time of the year.

Staring at them didn't help but then started adding x's (xxxster etc) in place of letters and got them all...albeit with one second to spare!

Nice observation! I did think about it, but I liked the trio of seven-letter answers, so limited it to that. :)

My first thought with the -oon question was loon (4), but I did get the two longer answers.

Likewise. Took me forever to think of Baboon because I couldn't get loon out of my head.

Why wasn't there a 6-letter example that ends in -ster? Oyster

Great Quiz, took me forever to think of chipmunk, because we don't have any in the UK, mind you we are short on baboons too...

A bit surprised a lot of people are familiar with a toucan but not a pelican.

The "can" sound is much more prevalent in toucan than pelican. I pronounce it pel-i-ken, so it never came to mind. Where as, two-can jumped right out there.

Rooster is not an animal! It is a male chicken. Also a guineapig was not included. Not impressed!
