Ha! I was trying to put tree, bull, and dwarf together to figure out an animal.
Isn't a frog considered an amphibian though. I guess it is still an animal though Oh well, I will try to do better next time.
Good one!

Wow !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I clicked on the contributor (Princeford93) and got this reply:

"The Braingle user that you clicked on no longer exists."

Man !!! ... BEWARE !!!!

When "Jake's Software" censures you (assuming that's what might have happened) .... sometimes ....

you REALLY get CENSURED !!!!

I put "Jake's Software" in quotes because Jake sez ... "It's not me who's doing it, it's my software".

Anyway ... I enjoyed this contribution a lot ... and gave it top marks (votes).

So ..... I hope all of you are voting. !!

Cheers .... YLADS ...

I got hung up on "Short African" as I was thinking "Pygmy" and not dwarf. ....

Wasn't sure what to do with this one, looked for words "in" the phrases.
Maybe the question should have been: What different species of one animal is represented "by" the following phrases?
Oh well, blame it on Monday.

Thank you, HABS and jaycr.

Nice, longer, more analytical comments.

Thanks for taking my advice - if you did so.

And if you "didn't so" thanks for coming up with it on your own.

It makes the thread more interesting and, therefore, more of a "draw" for more readers and commenters.

And, that's "growth" and that's what we need.


YLADS (certainly !!)

I had a frog stuck in my throat and must have dislodged my head, because I was completely lost on this one. Oh well, better luck tomorrow.
