    For "animals that are five letters long," I expected more insects. Depending on font size.

    I thought that I had typed krypton for the "ends in -on" category and wondered why it wasn't accepted. But then I saw the box and noticed that I hadn't actually typed "krypton" but "kyrpton". It seems that after some years on Sporcle one unconsciously tends to type "kyr" to begin any answer. Guess why.

    Man! I tried squirrel, mouse, rat, vole, sable, mink, marten, ferret, and prairie dog. That little critter sure weaseled his way out of identification...

    Thank you Sporcle admins for publishing my quiz! :)

    Great concept for a quiz. Some of these are just that little bit too obscure I thought.

    I saw you changed it in the archived comments, but maybe you should accept both "damselfly" and "dragonfly." I feel like that difference is disproportionately subtle if you're accepting answers as generic as "dog" and "spider."

    I had no idea what the okapi was. It looked like something made from leftover parts! Now I need to go read about them.

    @Roopledy:After the quiz is published, quizmakers can't edit quizzes anymore. But as this quizmaker, I agree, I would like to see dragonfly accepted, since I couldn' even spell that other one.

    @brcdmd, I don't see people down-voting religion. I see people down-voting those who aggressively misrepresent a fundamental (and almost universally accepted) scientific theory.
