Nice one! Somehow missed the -sters, then got one from each pair, besides two.

what about oyster?

Oyster does not have 7 letters. This quiz is not comprehensive.

Fine suggestion, should be added.

Yes, I tried oyster too, only to realize that it only has six letters.

I've watched too many cooking shows, one of the first ones I got was the Q-one. They are always cooking that. Missed the other one of the pair. They should cook more of those.

Also would've expected turkey to be much higher up. Considering the time of the year.

Staring at them didn't help but then started adding x's (xxxster etc) in place of letters and got them all...albeit with one second to spare!

You could add oyster to the -ster animals

Nice observation! I did think about it, but I liked the trio of seven-letter answers, so limited it to that. :)

Oyster was the first thing I tried before anything else, after realising it was not enough letters it took some effort to get the rodent one, even more to get the marine one and didnt get the farm animal at all... (didnt want go give away much to people that scan comments for answers...)

I grew up lobster fishing. The only one I didn't get.

I just couldn't get past the alphabetical order of a hipster being a definite creature.

Agree with oyster. I think oyster is more common than earwig.

My first thought with the -oon question was loon (4), but I did get the two longer answers.

Likewise. Took me forever to think of Baboon because I couldn't get loon out of my head.

Nice quiz, got stuck on chipmunk for a minute or so until I got it with just over half a minute left

Why wasn't there a 6-letter example that ends in -ster? Oyster

Crossedthe my mind aswell, but decide not to try it. Perhaps as hidden answer, like an easteregg, if that is possible? Unless that screws with the stats maybe.

Iguana also has 6 letters and includes 'ig'. Quite tough under pressure of time!

It has to end in -ig not include it

A bit surprised a lot of people are familiar with a toucan but not a pelican.

Level 43
Jan 25, 2017
The "can" sound is much more prevalent in toucan than pelican. I pronounce it pel-i-ken, so it never came to mind. Where as, two-can jumped right out there.
+1
Level 67
Jan 28, 2023
Toucan and Pelican are pronounced with the same ending with an English pronounciation, so it must be your accent is different

Well looking at your maps one is from the US and the other is from Europe, I agree with jdmorgan and I'm from the US so probably.

I doubt people are unfamiliar with the ones they missed. It is not click the checkbox of the animals you have heard of. You have to come up with them yourself. And pretty sure that more than half of the people have heard of a hamster (which is only at 48 at the moment)

Why do Jetpunkers always conflate "not coming up with an answer in a timed quiz" with "never having heard of the answer". Everyone knows what a pelican is man lol

Is this like The Candyman, where if you say the name five times he will magically appear? Ok, I'll try: Oyster. Oyster. Oyster. Oyster. Oyster.

Rooster is not an animal!

It is a male chicken.

Also a guineapig was not included.

Not impressed!

I just read a comment (presumably from someone who knows how to read) declaring:

"Rooster is not an animal! It is a male chicken."

I have to go lie down right now.

I can't tell you how many times I have come across people who don't think insects and other bugs are animals. I don't know what they think the critters are, but I just leave them with their delusions.

Missed rooster and pelican :/ but not bad at 3:16 am, after just waking up (too high fever to try and go to sleep again, but I guess the brain still works). But was so close, not sure I would ve gotten pelican anytime soon though

The fact that octopus only have 7 letters while there is an 8 letter one annoys me way more than it should.
