@rebbel Nice.

We can skip Q, X, Y, and Z because there simply aren’t a lot of animals that start with those letters.

@lucillelucillelucille

(Very good! lol )

Wait…are we now just statng random animals, just because, or is the alphabet repeating with more challenges? lol

Goose.

Coloma's avatar

Nobody posted a ‘Z’ animal..and then skipped right to Yak and then Quail!

Where did Quail come from? lololol

weeveeship's avatar

@coloma I think quail was just thrown in there for fun.

The alphabet is repeating and we are now on E. There are no additional rules other than to try and avoid repeating an animal that was already mentioned.

E is for Egret!

It was my own trend, to skip a few letters, spurred by the Yak/Quail derailment. lol

Damn, double duplicate lol.

lillycoyote's avatar

Gyrfalcon

She only wears that hat to church and although the other girlfalcons are all saying it’s a little ostentatious and over the top, they can’t stop talking about it, that’s how awesome that hat is. They’re all just jealous

daytonamisticrip's avatar

Oh sorry
koala?

weeveeship's avatar

@daytonamisticrip Also already mentioned

Remember, birds, insects, and reptiles also count as animals. However, plants, fungi and bacteria do not.

daytonamisticrip's avatar

I know at least one of these isn’t a duplicate
Kit Fox
Killer Whale
Komodo dragon
Kodiak bear
Kitten

weeveeship's avatar

@daytonamisticrip K=Kit Fox works

(Though I didn’t know there was actually such an animal. I always thought it was just the name of a ‘Mech in Classic Battletech, http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Kit_Fox_%28Uller%29 but I digress)

Lemur

By the way, someone can still use “Komodo Dragon” and “Kodiak Bear” on a future round.

daytonamisticrip's avatar

macaw
I’m done here, I think.

Insects, Birds, Reptiles, Mammals, and Fish all count as animals.
