Dugongs and Manatees are NOT the same. The most obvious physical difference between the two is the tail. Manatee's have a flat, disk shaped tail whilst dugongs have a fluked tail that looks like a dolphin tail.

Mallard is not correct. It's a specific species, both male and female... and it doesn't start with 'd'.

You need to change the dinosaur description. The world is only about 10, 000 years old, not 65 million or 300 million.

But those who believe it also believe there was never any such thing as a dinosaur. So the question would have to be removed entirely.

HELLO ALL.

I think the reason why many you know a sea-cow to be a manatee is because that is an Atlantic/Caribbean creature, whereas the dugong is and Indo-Pacific creature.

Where I live I've only known dugongs and was excited to see this in the quiz.

The Southern Giant Darner (starts with D) is the fastest type of dragonfly.

I tried "darner" again this time for "dragonfly." Darners are the largest and fastest kind of dragonfly.

Wow, never knew dragonflies hunted mosquitoes. No wonder I couldn't get that one xP

They hunt pretty much anything their own size or below that moves. They're often even cannibalistic!

I have never seen a dog (of any breed) in a fire station. Is it a US thing?

I guess, but historically, Dalmatians helped calm the Fire Horses down since they were used to horses. Also, dogs can sniff out people in the fire.

I've also never connected dogs of any sort with fire stations, and I'm a volunteer firefighter. I just guessed away at dog breeds that start with D, but I still didn't get it.

I'm sure he was probably thinking of animals that hunt or move in packs, like wolves, but that's not what kind of a pack animal donkeys are.

Although you were clearly looking for dragonfly, glad that damselfly is an acceptable type-in.

Level 53
Jun 24, 2020
You need to give a better explanation for donkey, and I don't think "drake" was very appropriate since there must of been many more choices.

I thought "pack animal" meant an animal that is part of a pack - such as wolf. It's too ambiguous. You mean a beast of burden.

Doe is also a female rabbit, kangaroo and probably some others in addition to deer.
