no more weird than ladybug. I'm guessing around 50% aren't ladies, and they don't bite, so are not bugs

Nah ladybugs look nothing like a bird. Like, not even a little. Sorry, Brits, that's just weird. Americans got you on that one.

in america we can't call them ladybirds for fear of confusing them with former first lady lbj

It's what it's known as in New Zealand, and quite a few other countries.

They are called ladybirds in Ireland too, what are they called in your part of the world?

yeah a lady bug. That's what we call them in the USA.

OK, how come that's a bald eagle if it's got so much hair on its head?

Level 80
Mar 11, 2018
Wikipedia: Bald eagles are not actually bald; the name derives from an older meaning of the word, "white headed".

Should probably accept "greylag goose" for the goose one, given that that also begins with G, and is a more precise description of the animal shown.

Aaaagh Kea ! I was convinced it was a Kakapo :(

At least you were right geographically.

Level 68
May 23, 2022
I knew what a Kea was, but wasn't about to get it from the photo alone.

After Kookaburra didn't take, I pretty much gave up on that one. I was also in the (slightly broader) general geographic area, but no dice.

They should've just slapped a picture of a kiwi bird on there instead

no animal with X? since Unicorn works the scope is so broad that Xenomorph could be a chance :)

I think it's a joke because there's no country that starts with x, but idk

Couldn't the choices for K & V be a little more a part of today's world?

Could K be Kiwi, Kangaroo, Koala, Kingfisher, or Komodo Dragon ??

Could V be an animal that is living now rather than one 70 million years ago ---> like Vulture, Viper, Vicuna or Vole ??

I'm wondering what the JetPunk guidelines are for ever changing questions in a Quiz like this?

How does it all work here?

+11
Level 87
Mar 12, 2018
Keas are very much "a part of today's world." And now you've learned something! Really, the V question wasn't hard.

And the guidelines are what are expressed in the quiz description. I wouldn't say that a quiz like this is "ever changing."

+7
Level 82
Mar 12, 2018
Keas would have struggled to acquire such a love for ripping apart windscreen wipers if they weren't part of today's world...
+11
Level 71
Mar 14, 2018
Also, keas love those metallic wrappers prepared hotdogs and hamburgers come in; I do NOT understand why ski resorts were actually selling them that way! Thankfully, I got my burger out of the wrapper before the kea made off with it. // For those of you that enjoy learning a little something with your quiz-taking, keas are the only alpine parrot in the world! They are native to New Zealand, and look much greener than this picture shows when they're viewed against the snow! And oh yeah – they like shiny things :-)
+2
Level 73
Aug 12, 2018
Yeah, the v one wasn't hard, unless all you could think of was "veloster," which I believe is some sort of Hyundai.

Thanks, Samiamco. I'm one of those who is grateful for the extra tidbits in the comments. I assumed the Kea was another tropical bird.

Aug 12, 2018
The last time I was in New Zealand I was on the road to Milford Sound and stopped for a photograph. A mischievous kea, ready in waiting, swooped down out of the tree and began pulling the long rubber strip off the top of my car. Trying to shoo it away was futile - it thought it was a hilarious game. I had to get in the car and start driving away, reaching 30kph before it finally let go and flew off, defeated, the rubber strip tumbling to the ground behind my car. Had to turn the car around, pick up the strip and attach it back on to the car...

Unicorn should be replaced/removed or you should specify that there are imaginary animals.

May 23, 2022
How long did you spend trying to think of a real animal that looked like a horse and had a single horn? I scoured my “U” encyclopedia Britannica for hours with the quiz paused. Well then I found my answer! The unicornfish! Now, it didn’t look like a horse at all in the photo, but I’ll be darned, it worked! And it even accepted it as a type-in without “fish”. Maybe they should change the photo to one that looks more like a fish and less like a horse, though.

Urchin or umbrellabird would be good if you’re looking for an actual animal. Or if you’re looking for something a little more out there you could do the Uakari.

Got 23! Stumped on Kea and Impala (should have know that but I kept typing in Ibex).

I am not so hot about the extinct/mythological critters but it was still a nice quiz and the pictures of the horse and wolf were nice as was the funny ostrich!

Level 87
Aug 13, 2018
Kakapo should be acceptable for the "K". they are nearly identical and without showing it in flight there is no decent way to determine the difference. I wasted a good minute trying different spellings.
+3
Level 31
Nov 16, 2020
What @idontkn?????? Kakapo look nothing like Kea. Kakapo are huge, (the largest parrot) can't fly, are way fluffier, and have way different beaks along with many other visual differences. Look it up if you need. They dont look alike apart from the colour. If you excepted Kakapo for Kea it would be like accepting Emu for Ostrich, or Leopard for Jaguar.
+1
Level 67
May 23, 2022
Ah, the advantage of being from New Zealand and seeing kea in the mountains. Just to let you know, from the photo it is immediately obvious to the trained eye it is a kea. A kakapo is a ground parrot that cannot fly and has a fluffy face. Kea have been known to attack sheep!

I am no expert, but I watched enough Crocodile Hunter as a child to suspect that the alligator in the picture is actually a crocodile. Google Lens seems to agree. Could any specialist confirm?

What on earth is a ladybird? Have you ever seen a bird before?
+1
Level 59
May 24, 2022
Back to "ladybird" versus "ladybug." Although I am not a Brit, I favor the term "ladybird." These insects are beetles, not bugs. They were called "ladybirds" long before they were called "ladybugs." This is another example of an animal name that underwent mutation after the English crossed the pond. Perhaps it was bad grog on the way over, or something. Same sort of mess happened with buzzards, elk, and so forth. "Two countries divided by a common language," in Shaw's apt description.
