Shouldn't this specify just livestock, rather than large mammals, since what is considered large is very subjective? Many dogs, for example, are larger than many goats, but they aren't included.

It was inconceivable that camel wasn't on the list, so I tried dromedary and bactrian separately, which shouldn't have been necessary. Given that there are feral herds of water buffalo in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Tunisia, Argentina, Colombia, Guyana, Suriname, Brazil, and Uruguay, I wonder if they don't qualify as "partially domesticated".

Bactrian and Dromedary camels are two separate species that were domesticated separately. Putting just camel as an answer for both would negate that fact. Water buffalo have been domesticated in several areas. Many different domesticated species have wild populations. This does not negate the fact that the animals are domesticated. Think of feral pigs as an example.

Maybe you could have the answer fields for the camels read "____ Camel" so we know to enter the species

I like the reduction in ambiguity by relying on a source for the information, and this is indeed a fun piece of trivia to know. However, because of how people usually use these common names (especially in the case of camels), it doesn't make for a very fun quiz without a breadcrumb to indicate it. My suggestion would be accept Camel|Dromedary for the answer "Camel (dromedary)", since nearly all camels are dromedaries, and as a hint that there is more than one type of camel on the quiz.

I gave up when the first domesticated animal I guess - bison - was not on here.

By technicality if that’s the logic you’re using neither are most of the animals on this list lol. I’d redo the instructions at the very minimum because there is wholeheartedly too many contradictions in this quiz.

If you want to split hairs about the difference between bactrian camels and dromedary camels, or banteng and domestic cattle, suggest change the name of the quiz to "Unique wild animals and when they were domesticated", rather than the current focus on "large domesticated mammals" which implies generic names such as sheep, cow and camel.

Not sure what is meant by "not including tame". The source shown lists horse, dromedary and yak as "tame" (and possibly others - stopped comparing after those three).

The source at this time has two separate tables, one for "Domesticated animals" and one for "Tame and partially domesticated animals", which is surely the distinction the quiz maker is using (independent of the "Degree and type of domestication column").
