About This Quiz

We all know our dogs, cats and horses, but what about those unique animals? Would you be able to name a zorse from an image? Did you even know a zorse existed? Take this quiz to see how many of these A-Z animals you can name!

Which "A" animal is shown here?

Aardvarks are an interesting mesh of several animal parts, such as a pig's snout, a kangaroo's tail and rabbit ears. However, they have little relation to any of those other animals. While they do enjoy a nice meal of ants with their foot-long tongue, the African-based Aardvark is a different species than the South American-based ant eater.


Which "B" animals is shown here?

Arguably the most famous bird in the Galapagos Islands, nearly 50 percent of the world's breeding pair of Blue-Footed Booby live here. Their blue feet are a stunning color similar to beaches throughout the Caribbean. However, one of their most unique traits is creating their ground nests out of their own feces and using their feet to keep the eggs warm.


Which "C" animal is shown here?

Coconut crabs are big. No, we mean really big. As the largest land-living arthropod, these crabs can reach a length of three feet leg-to-leg. How did they get their name? Well, they eat coconuts, of course! Over several days, the crabs dig away at the coconut's fibrous outer shell. Studies show that crabs with access to coconuts grow nearly twice as big as crabs without access to them.


Which "D" animal is shown here?

Dalmatians are known for their spots, but did you know they are born without spots? Dalmations don't normally grow their spots until they are about four weeks old.


Which "E" animal is shown here?

Echidna's are another animal that looks like someone just grabbed pieces off several animals and mixed them together. The Echidna has porcupine sines, a bird peak, a kangaroo pouch and can lay eggs like a reptile. Talk about an interesting mammal!


Which "F" animal is shown here?

Ferrets are all about "business" which also happens to be their animal group name. These weasle-like animals sleep between 14 and 18 hours a day and are the third most popular pet in America. But all you need to know about them is in their name. Mustela putorius furo, Latin for Ferret, means "smelly little thief."


Which "G" animal is shown here?

While a Gibbon might be small in stature, it has some big cousins. The Gibbon is closely related to a gorilla and is a small ape. Both small and light-weight the Gibbon grows between 17 and 25 inches and weighs less than 20 lbs., often half that. Their long arms, flexible shoulders and strong legs are ideal for living in the trees.


Which "H" animal is shown here?

A hedgehog may be one of the cutest animals on the planet and in recent years, they have grown in pet popularity. However, they are still illegal to be owned as a pet in six states - Maine, Arizona, California, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Hawaii - and in New York City. Hedgehogs got their name because they love to hang out around garden hedges and they make a grunting pig-like noise.


Which "I" animal is shown here?

Indri are the largest of the lemur family and found only on Madagascar. Indri spend most of their time in trees and can leap up to 33 feet.


Which "J" animal is shown here?

Which "K" animal is shown here?

Kiwis mate for life and relationships have been known to last for over 20 years. The Kiwi lay eggs that are nearly 20 percent of the laying bird's body-size. This size of egg means the babies have more yolk to live in, allowing them to be born fully-feathered, healthy and strong.


Which "L" animal is shown here?

Bet you thought a liger wasn't real! A liger is the largest cat in the world and has characteristics distinctive to both lions and tigers. A liger is truly a hybrid animal, bred from both a lion and a tiger and they appear to have the best traits of both large felines. From being good swimmers to running up to 50 mph, ligers are awesome. And their roar? They roar both like a lion and a tiger, depending on the situation. Is that cool, or what!


Which "M" animal is shown here?

Manatees prefer warmer climates and shallow waters. However, despite their size and fatty appearance, they have relatively little fat to protect them from cold climates. Their large body is mostly made up of their stomach and intestines.


Which "N" animal is shown here?

Newts are known as a popular ingredient used by witches - more specifically the eye of newt. Newts can reproduce many of their body parts multiple times, such as their limbs, tails, jaws, spinal cords, heart ventricles and, yes, even their eyes. Studies show they can re-grow their eye lenses at least 18 times.


Which "O" animal is shown here?

The Okapi may have features similar to a zebra, but in reality, it is related to the giraffe - without the long neck. This is evident in the Okapi's walk and short horns on males. From being able to lick their ears, stinky feet, and its infrasonic superpowers, the Okapi is one of the most interesting and least-known mammals on the planet.


Which "P" animal is shown here?

The platypus is one of the world's favorite animals. With distinctive traits, such as egg laying, a pouch, and duckbill who wouldn't be obsessed with this creature?

Their bill is so sensitive that they have the ability to hunt with their eyes, ears and nose closed.


Which "Q" animal is shown here?

Small, plump and cute, these birds are popular to hunters and chefs throughout the world. Quail can lay up to 20 eggs at once, live alone, yet flock in the Fall. Their ability to lay more than a dozen eggs at once is a survival skill for the species which are popular prey for most carnivores due to their short flight distance and plump bodies.


Which "R" animal is shown here?

Rattlesnakes are one of the most dangerous snakes in the world, however, despite popular belief, they prefer not to attack humans. Instead, they use their rattle to notify you that you should walk away because they are feeling uncomfortable. Since they cannot regulate their own body temperature, they are often underground in the Summer and only seen in the Fall or Spring.


Which "S" animal is shown here?

A seahorse is an interesting creature which may not look like a fish but actually is. They may also be one of the most loving creatures. Seahorses mate for life, with mating dancing rituals that can last for up to eight hours.


Which "T" animal is shown here?

Many scientists believe the Tapir is one of the few mammals that hasn't changed much over tens of millions of years.


Which "U" animal is shown here?

Uakaris are "ginger" monkeys with a red face. In fact, the redder the face, the more attractive they are to each other. They coexist with up to 100 other uakaris and subsist on fruits and nuts. Their teeth are so strong and sharp, they can smash through hard nut shells most other monkeys can't.


Which "V" animal is shown here?

Vultures are carrion birds that eat prey that is already dead. Over the years, their bodies have developed traits to help with this. For example, their long necks are entirely bare of feathers so they can keep clean while feasting. They have an exceptional immune system which protects them from getting sick while feasting on rotten meat.


Which "W" animal is shown here?

The wallaby is similar to a kangaroo, but smaller. These jumping animals give birth to their young when the Joeys are only about the size of a jelly bean. The Joey will then spend the rest of its childhood growing in the mother's pouch. Due to its size, the Wallaby is prey for many animals, from birds to snakes, humans and other wild animals.


Which "X" animal is shown here?

Despite its size, the X-ray Tetra is a tough fish that can handle the Amazonian waters, both fresh and the saltier ones on the coastline. They get their name from their see-through skin that allows you to see their bones - and even eggs - during breeding season.


Which "Y" animal is shown here?

Yaks are huge creatures that can grow up to 6.5 feet tall and weigh over 2,200 pounds. They are covered in a thick coat of fur that allows them to survive in temperatures down to -40 C in the winter as well as allowing them to swim in frozen waters without affecting their body temperature.
