Feels odd to refer to an angel as an "animal." Not sure I can make a solid argument for excluding it, though.

Agreed. It's a creature, but not an animal.

I agree... though I think including a Hindu deity feels just as strange to me.

Piping shrike and swan are on state emblems in Australia not a national emblem. Very misleading.

The quiz doesn't ask what the national emblems are. It asks which animals appear on the coat of arms.

On the national coat of arms an Emu and Kangaroo are holding up a shield which has a Piping Shrike, Swan, and Lion.

I can't believe no country has a bear of any sort on their flag. Seems like a missed opportunity.

Maybe because it's the only marsupial on here, but Kangaroos aren't mammals.

Level 77

Marsupials belong to the Class Mammalia. They are mammals.

Would be just as wrong as saying that a rabbit isn't a mammal because it's a rodent.
+15
Level 74

No, that would be even more wrong. Rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents.

Marlin? But I typed swordfish and it didn't accept it. That's not cool.

They aren't the same thing. They belong to different families.

So they do. Thanks.

But, I would argue that if you can be right with either turtle or tortoise, you should also be right with marlin or swordfish (or sailfish.)

Maybe add buzzard as a type-in for vulture? (Apparently in other places "Buzzard" refers to a type of hawk, but in the US it's common to use "buzzard" and "vulture" interchangeably)

Guatemala (quetzal) and Kenya (rooster) in the birds section should be flipped since Q is before R alphabetically.
