Awesome quiz with great pictures! This makes me want to go to Australia.

I want to hug the koala and run in horror from all of the others. Fun quiz!

@gwukelic- You and me both. @giveupyet- Thanks!

@Hejman: Come clean. How much of the inspiration for this quiz came from the comments on Sporcle Crossing? :)
Apr 11th, 2011 at 04:18 GMT
@BombaySapphire- Some, but I actually had several of the picture files for this before Sporcle Crossing was published. Of course, Sporcle Crossing sat in the user contributed section for about a year, so putting it together still might have been the inspiration for this. Actually, I was either going to do this next or amphibians and, really, amphibians was just going to be a bunch of frogs and toads so I went here instead!

Well, given that I had just started to make this very quiz myself you would have thought I could have done a bit better than just over half... You have thought of a good few I'd forgotten about Hejman, nicely done. Surely this needs publishing??? Now to save up for those flights

@sproutcm- Thanks for the editor's pick!

How about accepting Tasmanian tiger for Thylacine? That's the term I'm more familiar with anyway.
Apr 11th, 2011 at 17:46 GMT
In my defense, I was suffering from a cuteness overload. The kangaroo is making the same face as my cat when I try to take his picture.
Apr 11th, 2011 at 19:05 GMT
@sean2088- I wasn't aware of that. Now that I'm educated, I'll be happy to add it.
Apr 11th, 2011 at 20:24 GMT
Could you also accept Tasmanian wolf for Thylacine? That's the name I've usually used. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thylacine
Apr 11th, 2011 at 21:26 GMT
Considering the Thylacine has been extinct for 100 years, I'm certainly learning a lot about it today!

Curse you potaroo. I would have got them all if it wasn't for you. Somehow I got marsupials confused with primates and started guessing aye-aye and bushbaby. Cool to see the monito del monte. It's my favourite South American marsupial.

Good that it accedpts Tasmanian Tiger for Thylacine

What's the difference between opossum and possum?
May 16th, 2011 at 02:17 GMT
@Treverbeast454- Well the 'O' of course! I believe the distinction is one of geography and that possum is used in Australia and opossum in North America (except for the phrase 'playing possum'). The word opossum is Algonquin for "white beast".

If it's not in "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport", I probably won't know it.

Good thing I saw potoroos on the TV last night.

I so want a Wombat for a pet.

If you had asked me to "name as many marsupials as you can" (with no photos) I think I'd have gotten the exact same 5 right.
Jun 1st, 2011 at 05:28 GMT
Treverbeast 454--You may well ask. They are indeed two different creatures. The North American opossum is a ground-dwelling marsupial belonging to the order Didelphimorphia. The Australian possum is a tree-dwelling marsupial belonging to the order Diprotodontia.

Couldn't recognize a bandicoot that wasn't orange, wearing blue jeans and hawking Playstations.

Quolls are adorable!!! As are bilbies, remember seeing them scoot around in Taronga in Sydney!
Jun 1st, 2011 at 06:19 GMT
Why do they all look so shocked?
Jun 1st, 2011 at 07:03 GMT
I like the way that the Tasmanian 'devil' is the only one that is snarling at the photographer, whereas the kangaroo appears to have fallen in love with the same.

Greatest kangaroo picture...ever.

Ha Ha. I actually typed "basselope". (For all you Bloom County fans)

isnt a platypus a marsupial?
Jun 1st, 2011 at 12:45 GMT
Half of these names look like characters from a bad fantasy novel.
Jun 1st, 2011 at 13:01 GMT
Weezer, you need to watch more Phineas & Ferb -- a platypus is a mammal!
Jun 1st, 2011 at 13:02 GMT
I would like to see Crash Bandicoot as a bonus answer.

I wanna Quoll...please please please!
Jun 1st, 2011 at 13:25 GMT
I remember the Tasmanian Devil looking a lot different than that. Blaldeloobalablllah!!!!!
Jun 1st, 2011 at 13:41 GMT
Platypus is an egg-laying mammal. "Oh, Perry. There you are."
Jun 1st, 2011 at 13:48 GMT
I want a Quoll.
Jun 1st, 2011 at 14:04 GMT
The quoll looks cute there, but trust me, you don't want one. They're carnivores, they're related to the Tasmanian Devil and they have a very annoying bark. Imagine waking up to this every morning: http://site.daftgadgets.com/blog1/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Quoll-Bark1.jpg
Jun 1st, 2011 at 14:10 GMT
Well that was humbling!
Jun 1st, 2011 at 14:17 GMT
I want a bilby. And a quoll. And a wombat. And a koala. And a monito del monte. And a....

One of my favorite bands sing about tales of girls, and boys, and marsupials. The cutest of the marsupials!
