Is there any sight more majestic than 30 tonnes of whale launching itself 10 metres into the sky? Great pictures!
Aug 1st, 2011 at 23:02 GMT
Urgent need of an animal tag please! Another great one LTH - thanks.
Aug 2nd, 2011 at 02:02 GMT
@sufradley, your wish is my command.
Aug 2nd, 2011 at 16:10 GMT
Since there is only one type of dolphin in your quiz, please accept "dolphin"? You take "seal" for Harbor Seal, even though there are multiple types of seals, and "porpoise" for Harbor Porpoise.

@imclala, I originally accepted dolphin by itself and I was making a few tweaks here and there and didn't realize I had unknowingly removed that answer. Thanks for saying something.
Aug 2nd, 2011 at 21:13 GMT
That leopard seal is going to give me nightmares.
Aug 3rd, 2011 at 00:57 GMT
For some reason, "Beluga" is not being accepted unless you put a space after it.
Aug 3rd, 2011 at 21:15 GMT
No freshwater mammals? I was hoping for a beaver or something.
Aug 4th, 2011 at 08:34 GMT
I didn't get Dugong - were all those years playing Pokemon for nothing?
Aug 4th, 2011 at 19:11 GMT
@catcherj, by definition, marine mammals dwell in the sea or depend on the sea for subsistence.
Aug 5th, 2011 at 02:36 GMT
Wonderful! Oh, how I love a good animal quiz.

Dugong? Learn something new every day. And I've always wanted to know why a Narwhal isn't a Narwhale.
Aug 9th, 2011 at 04:12 GMT
Is that the narwhal that shows up when the internet crashes and Sporcle goes down? (You know, Stubby?) I love me a good animal quiz! Great work, LTH.
Aug 9th, 2011 at 04:18 GMT
No Steller's Sea Cow?
Aug 9th, 2011 at 04:40 GMT
this thing just makes me realize how lazy the pokemon people were in making names...
Aug 9th, 2011 at 04:40 GMT
I've been lucky enough to have observed 12 varieties of cetacean in the wild. I've also seen quite a few other animals featured in this quiz. Nice to see this quiz published.
Aug 9th, 2011 at 04:44 GMT
I didn't get the right whale.
Aug 9th, 2011 at 05:08 GMT
Did anybody get either of the "mrweebl" songs stuck in their head?
Aug 9th, 2011 at 05:24 GMT
@The_Road_Guy: The name apparently comes from ancient Icelandic ("náhvalr").
Aug 9th, 2011 at 05:34 GMT
Shoot! I picked the WRONG whale!
Aug 9th, 2011 at 05:51 GMT
I thought only sea lions had ear flaps and seals had ear holes. So imagine my surprise to see two animals with ear flaps, and only one is a sea lion. Where did I go wrong?
Aug 9th, 2011 at 06:24 GMT
I tried "Dewgong" several times before I remembered it's spelled "dugong". Damn you Pokemon.
Aug 9th, 2011 at 06:55 GMT
My elementary school study of whales paid off. Side note: Apparently Grey Seal isn't a thing. Just an Elton John song.
Aug 9th, 2011 at 07:16 GMT
@worm0110, thats weird, I typed Dugong first.
Aug 9th, 2011 at 09:21 GMT
Excellent. Although I admit I'm sad that 'gay shark' wasn't accepted for dolphin. ;)
Aug 9th, 2011 at 10:30 GMT
My only annoyance on this quiz was that harbour seal was got by just typing seal, while the others needed to be more specific, if one needs to be specific to species they all should be.

No baleen whale?
Aug 9th, 2011 at 11:36 GMT
I'm surprised someone hasn't complained: "If you accept Whales you should accept Scotland and Northern Ireland too!" or have I just played too many Geography quizzes lately?!
Aug 9th, 2011 at 12:04 GMT
I've never heard of a brown fur seal or an elephant seal, and I felt like those were weirdly specific, as opposed to all the others.

right on the doot with 1 sec to go
Aug 9th, 2011 at 12:49 GMT
This is very 1800's but I tried cachalot before sperm whale... which is the state animal of CT even though I don't know how they live here. Long Island Sound is New York's sewer.
Aug 9th, 2011 at 13:30 GMT
I was shocked a few years ago to learn that a "killer whale" is in fact a large member of the dolphin family.
Aug 9th, 2011 at 13:40 GMT
I don't know if they ever helped my kids, but by using Flash Cards all those years ago sure helped me with IDing the Narwhal. I guess one might say those Flash Cards served a porpoise. n'yuk, n'yuk, n'yuk.......
Aug 9th, 2011 at 14:03 GMT
Aah I typed Dewgong so Many times I hate you pokemon By some wierd miracle i typed Manatee first Also I Thought Manatee(Sea Cow)and Dugong were the same thing but i guess you learn something new every day Finally arent Narwhals amazing coz i cant get the song out of my head now Great Quiz Can you do more like this plz
Aug 9th, 2011 at 14:10 GMT
I've heard of an elephant seal before, but I don't think I've ever seen a picture of one until now. That is one apt name.
Aug 9th, 2011 at 14:14 GMT
NARWHALS 4 LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Aug 9th, 2011 at 14:30 GMT
No platypus? Now I'm sad...
Aug 9th, 2011 at 14:31 GMT
Difficult, i do not know the variations of whales unfortunately, really good quiz, i'm off to update my knowledge on marine mammals...
Aug 9th, 2011 at 14:48 GMT
