Not much, what's gnu with you?
Great teaser...got them all, but I cheated...I eliminated the spaces between the words and looked at the line of letters!

neomajic**

Good Teaser! I got all of them. A Gnu is like a yak. I remember as a kid there was a tv program called "the Great Space Coaster", and in it there a character named "Gary Gnu", who was of course a Gnu.

GNU is also a heavily used term in the UNIX/Open Source arena.

GNU: def. Recursive acronymn for "GNU's Not UNIX!"

I take it that I am retarded. Am I the only one who missed cat? And I missed camel but there were people who said that they missed that one too. YEA! I only missed two out of eight. 75%.

Awesome challenge! Got everything but the "gnu".

You can read no 9 as tomcat. Crossword puzzlers would have no trouble with gnu, even though its an old word(1777)

Jan 06, 2007

For those of you having trouble with this kind of puzzle, write the sentence out with no spaces and then try to forget what it says. Works almost every time.
Pizzazz2uAus*
Jan 06, 2007

Totally Awesome teaser! Enjoy the challenge of finding the answer to ANY and ALL of the different teasers. Keep up with the animal scheme and maybe throw in a twist or two You have to attack and make your interest in these puzzles Don't expect the answers to just fal into your laps. Look up those questional clues and find those answers.
bradon182001*us*
Jan 06, 2007

Thanks for the tip enjaytee. I'll remember that for the future, since I had a lot of trouble with this one. Great teaser, btw, made me really work my brain.

I, too, missed lion. I think the capital "I" really throws people off.

Anyway, nice teaser!

ONCE AGAIN, AND AS USUAL, I AM THE NEY SAYER.

ABSOLUTELY NO CHALLENGE. WITHIN A STRING OF LETTERS, PICK OUT THE NAMES OF ANIMALS, HOW TOUGH IS THAT?


SORRY, BUT BORING

Jan 06, 2007

A year later and I still liked this one. Didn't get lion but that's a comment on my memory, not the teaser!

Jan 06, 2007

I really like these. As a teacher I have been using these kinds of exercises for fun things to do when you get your work done. I didn't get "gnu" either even though I knew what a gnu is.

I got all of them except for Gnu--I've never even heard of that animal!

Easy and fun teaser. The sentences themselves have a certain understated hilarity to them.

That was fun really enjoyable,give us more.
sand_rat
Jan 06, 2007

I really, really, really, really loved this. It was pretty easy for me, but I enjoyed it so much! I thought it was Gnut, because I have never heard of a Gnu or a Gnut (which is probably non existant)
QrystalAca*
Jan 07, 2007

I found this teaser enjoyable, and not too easy to be over too quickly. I found all the animals, getting better at finding them as I progressed. Gnu was the toughest, but eventually I did find it. Yay!
spoiledrotten*
Jan 07, 2007

I liked it i thought it was sort of challenging but then again ya know I am sort of a blonde so everything is challenging......lol

Jan 07, 2007

No matter I many times I read clue 2, I just couldn't find gnu Great teaser
wordmama*
Jan 08, 2007

I got them all in about a minute, but I've said before the language category is usually my strong suit... very enjoyable even if easy. Thanks for the fun, metallicman!

I got them all. It took a little while on # 2, but perserverance paid off and I got it. Good One!

Jan 06, 2013

I got them all! Good teaser - I like the addition of "gnu," which was a nice contrast to the rest of them, which were common animals. I only know the word gnu because it's great for Scrabble.
