His horns are huge. If you rephrased it as huge animal with horns there would be no issue. Now the huge can refer both to the horns or the animal. (The rhino's horns are tiny compared to the rest of him)

Foxes are still hunted in Britain, just not with dogs and also it's not necessarily the aristocracy who do the hunting.

For the "Q" bird... I tried typing in something close to "Quetzalcoatl" and got NO CREDIT !!! why not? My spelling might have been off by a letter somewhere ... but that's one hell of a word to spell correctly!! Challenging quiz! I got a 96% by missing that one Q-bird.

Woah! What the hell is that weird appendage? I'm really straining my brain to try to figure out the advantage imparted by that thing that would have made them evolve like that. The girl zebus think it looks sexy?

Like camels and Brahmin cattle it is fat tissue. It helps with minimizing heat distribution in their bodies, which is a good thing in arid lands.

Not sure but does Ibex qualify for African antelope / car?
+2
Level 57
Mar 8, 2018
No because there's no car called an Ibex, and also the ibex isn't really an antelope, it's a goat. And it lives in the Alps.
+1
Level 76
Mar 14, 2018
I think you're probably right that it shouldn't be included, but -

Ibex car - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibex_(vehicle)

Ibex African antelope - https://www.livescience.com/28102-ibex.html

(end of first paragraph)

Both are a little tenuous

Can u also accept "dewgong" for dugong?

I was going to say that tamarin should be accepted for T too, but then I saw "huge eyes".

Tarsiers look creepy as heck because of their giant eyes. I wouldn't want to see one in real life.
