So are we supposed to just read your mind on some of these? For example, the Harpy Eagle has a very, very similar population distribution and is also NT.

Nice job spotting that. :) Harpy eagle will work now. In most cases, I believe the information is unique enough to prevent multiple valid answers. However, if others are pointed out, I'll be happy to add them as type-ins.

Okay! I just so happen to be interested in Harpy Eagles, so just a coincidence there. But anyway, I've always thought about making a quiz like this but thought it would be too hard to come up with unique answers. Though most of yours certainly are unique. And providing the conservation status is a great idea.

And of course, great SVG

And, actually I just noticed that those little specs near northern Mexico belong to the Jaguar, areas where the Harpy Eagle definitely isn't present.

I don't mean to ruin your plans, but maybe giving part of its scientific classification would help make things more clear (or if you were going to do more of these in the future that would allow for less unique animals). E.g., its order or family.

But just an idea I thought of & figured I'd share

This is a great quiz and I would love to see more like it, but I agree with cathlete here. A little taxonomic guidance or maybe pairing the areas up with their number in the answer grid for alphabetic guidance.

Great ideas! I added numbers to the map that match up with the answer grid, and I added a "class" column to the grid as well. Thanks for the input!

Neat idea. Would you consider accepting Barbary Ape? I know they aren't technically apes but I usually think of them by that name, and their Wikipedia article mentions that they are commonly referred to as such.

Fair enough. Barbary ape will work now, as well as "magot," which wikipedia also gives as a common name. Who knew? :)

Fantastic quiz. It seems for some reason 'monk seal' does not work while just 'seal' is fine. Not sure, if that is intended.

Wonderful, yet fairly difficult quiz. I wonder in many cases why the species haven’t spread out to more land and only appear in tiny dots. I was under the impression that snow leopards were much more threatened. Anyway, nominated.
