I guess they changed that clue, cause it wasnt in there for me. Guess the clue now is the transferer of bubonic plague.

Couldnt think of anythign but rats for a while, and being f-themed, fly... (but that allready was another answer) got it in the end though. Hopping pest would ve been mucch easier though

I've never heard of a megabat. To me it's always been a flying fox for a fruit bat. When I lived in Australia you could see them flying around at night sometimes. Beautiful animals

Lightning bug? ....

That's a really weird description

It's a regional thing. That's what they are called in my area of the US mid-south. I was in school before I ever heard the word firefly. http://mentalfloss.com/article/66185/regional-breakdown-firefly-vs-lightning-bug (At least QM didn't use peenie wallie.)

Pretty sure 'lightning bug' was used in the movie - Sweet Home Alabama, might be wrong, but I've heard it a few times in movies. Quite like it. In NZ we don't have those, would love to see them.

Flying foxes are but one genus of the megabat (which is a suborder and unlikely to be commonly used (hence it being the lowest scoring clue)). This clue needs updating/clarification - something like 'Bat of the Indian and South Western Pacific oceans.

I thought "they travel in schools" was related to nits/head lice in some way..... like a bug kids pass on at school, didn't catch on it meant fish! Nice quiz :-)

Never heard of a flying squirrel. Down here we have Sugar Gliders, which I think are a marsupial, not a rodent.

Flying squirrels are basically the same thing but rodents, flying lemurs are also similar but are either primates or almost primates.

At first I read the clue as "rodent that glides between tires". All I could think of was fast squirrel. I wasn't far off.

could think of several dutch flatfish (well the names, not their nationalty haha) but only halibot came to mind as an english name (still not bad I think...)

I have heard the word flounder before, but would ve never came up with it.

All the rest I got :)

Ps surprised at how high fawn scored

How about a Fennec (fox), Fossa or French bulldog to pump up the number of questions? They are not that obscure and should get reasonable percentage of correct answers. Maybe even Fire salamander or Frigatebird, but their numbers can be a bit worse.
