Nicely done, but just curious, why the "or insect"?

I Liked it. Fun..and required some thinking.

Hmmm... That was interesting... TOTALLY confused me, but, not everything's about me (at least mostly not everything) lol.... Like I said, I didn't get it... I didn't understand the directions really but that might be because I'm not as smart as I wish I was... *sigh* oh well, it was a gr8 teaser all the same!

um..... isn't an insect an animal too?
rachellanders**
Feb 01, 2006

It was fun to try and figure it out. I don't really get anagrams.
kimberlykayAus**
Feb 01, 2006

I gave up pretty quickly. I agree with others...the "insect" reference was very misleading.
Good job though.
chidam11Ain*
Feb 01, 2006

It given animal OR insect.So i did'nt feel it would be confusing.

Oops sorry for the gramatical error in the previous comment.

I also gave up too easily ... I guess I should have tried it when I wasn't in the middle of a Sudoku puzzle ...

Cool anagram, didn't get the last one though
vlermaAus*
Feb 01, 2006

What a nice job. Had to peek at first answer and then got the 4th, but tooo oooo oooo lazy I guess to get the other two. Had too many things going on this AM. Keep them coming tho, these are fun.

Like, doka13, I did not understand the directions. After seeing the solution I understood. An example would have been very helpful.
Vigo95Aus*
Feb 01, 2006

i got the first two easily in two seconds . the fourth took alittle longer . number thre tricked me because i thought maybe this was the insect . it wasn't! i gave up and looked at the answers . loved it !!!
rainbirdbrain*
Feb 01, 2006

I thought the directions were clear. I got all four, but it took me several minutes. For anagrams, I write all the letters in a circle. One of them I looked at it and looked at it and couldn't get it, then I did something else for a bit. Then as soon as I glanced at it again I got it! Great teaser, keep them coming!

That's the way I like them.

The only thing "lame" that has anything to do with this teaser is the comment that chupashuevos just made. How sad it is that you have to waste your time bashing others just because you haven't got enough sense to use your brain at least once a day.

I agree with KimKay People just need to just have fun with these games. anyway great teaser. I enjoyed it 2

chupashuevos can go suck an egg if he wants to but i think his comments were just silly to entertain himself . that's okay !

For some reason I found this teaser difficult. Maybe I didn't give myself enough time to study it, I don't know. Good job.

I love this kind of teaser. I couldn't get antelope. I just geve up too soon, I guess.

Apr 01, 2007

hmmmmmm .... insect??? thats what threw me off... unless the octupus is an insect.... maybe you're confusing it with a spider, they both have 8 legs lol anyhoo---keep me coming - me likey....

Pizzazz2uAus*
Apr 01, 2007

Easy, but quite fun to work out! Keep up the terrific work! I know of quite a few youngsters, who enjoy solving these anagrams. Working crosswords daily make anagrams come easy to me. But, I am sure that Braingle will not turn down many anagram teasers from submitters....
breathesunshineAus*
Apr 01, 2007

This was fun and easy. Sometimes just writing the letters down in a different order helps.

Tricky but fun, got 'em all
j9mattfieldAus*

I usually cruise through anagrams, but this one was tough for me. Good work.
QrystalAca*
May 03, 2007

I had a lot of fun working through this teaser! 1, 2, and 4 I got just by looking at them for a few moments, but 3 really had me struggling... I was writing the letters in a whole bunch of different orders, and never coming anywhere close! The fact that it starts with a vowel and then a consonant blend always seems to throw me off, but I'm learning! Anyways, it was when I wrote "soupoct" and finally saw the "oct" that everything came clear.
lukasiwicz*

Gee, I really wanted to see what chupashuevos submitted that drew all the flak, but I can't find his/her comment anywhere.
elentirAus*
Apr 06, 2010

Not sure why you needed to specify 'or insect' when they are also animals. It's no different than saying 'animal or mammal'.

Otherwise - fun teaser! Thanks!

Interesting and easy

Very nice, I needed a pencil and paper, but with a little patience I got 3 of them.

why does everyone think octopus was hard, it was the only one i got?
crocodiletca*
Apr 06, 2010

I didn't get octopus. Great job!
EliosAus*
Apr 06, 2010

Ooh, nice one! I, too, got all but octopus. My brain insisted on putting the S and C together, and I just couldn't shake it.

That was fun. I did not get the last one though.

sorry for duplicate!
thecatladycac**
Apr 07, 2013

Got them all fairly easily - when I do anagrams, I write all of the consonants on one line, and all of the vowels on a line below, then let my brain figure out how they go together! It usually works! Thanks for the nice teaser!
