Hi:
Little Brain tried hard to find the answer, but no way. The Brain diminished to a tiny bit of brain cells that were not functioning. But when I read the answer, I found out how smartly they were used. good luck, quack - quack

Interesting, challenging and fun, seems like a Braingle teaser to me.

Badger*us*
Aug 23, 2006

Brilliant teaser! Missed just a couple of clues, but was able to interpolate (wow, there's a fifty cent word) to get all of the answers! If this is an original, be proud of your work. Very fun. (2)
bradon182001*us*
Aug 23, 2006

This was fun. Didn't get them all, but enough to keep me trying. Good teaser.
coachpisco*
Aug 23, 2006

It was easy after I looked at the answers.
shawneeo*us*
Aug 23, 2006

Yay! Yay! Yay, Yay, Yaaaaaaay!!!!!

I got them all-ll, I got them all-ll, al-lul, al-lul, I got them al-lulll!!! Weeeeeeee!

OK, but seriously, folks, I really did, but, I had one little bitty thingy: A tic is actually not an arachnid, it's an Acari, a relative of Arachnid. That almost threw me off, coz I knew it wasn't a spider, but fortunately I finally got it.

GREAT teaser, hard, fun, veery diff. and creative, just WONDERFUL, and THANKS!

Aug 23, 2006

Sure was a different sort of puzzle.
I got at least 2 of them.

Would like to see another of this kind.

Challenging test of word power, creativity, and ingenuity! Great puzzle.
azbee123*us*

that was very fun and creative! i loved it!

Aug 23, 2006

A uniquely challenging teaser, definitely a "Braingle qualification" for a teaser. Even this old man had to work on a couple.
MurfQ*ca*
Aug 23, 2006

Great teaser! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I got all but the last one before giving up and looking at the answers.

I have to add, I love the clever title.
Seal eggs = Sea legs
Had me stumped for a bit but after doing the teaser and getting in the groove of it, it hit me and I loved it!
vlermaAus*
Aug 23, 2006

This is truly a great Braingle Brain Teaser. Was very hard for me as they didn't teach phonics when I started school. I got a couple right, but after seeing the answers it was a very doable one. Super job.
Badger*us*
Aug 23, 2006

I have to add that I also liked the title! It threw me off for a bit, as seals don't lay eggs! But MurfQ did an apt explanation. Thanks Shawneeo for making me look up acari vs. arachnids... Didn't know the difference, but got lucky on the answer, I guess. Had already looked for the book on South American Ornithology... Just kidding... I'm not that nerdy, but learned a few things on this Braingler! Thanks again 3-2-1!

Some were easy, some were hard, and all were fun

Aug 23, 2006

Oh My Gosh..I loved this! It was clever to the ultimate. I only got #3, but so wish I'd spent more tiome on it. Rhea??? Couldn't get past the crossword oldy, Emu. Great one.
starnz*us*
Aug 23, 2006

I'd like to see more of these!! I could use the practice!!
SandraBca*
Aug 23, 2006

Bravo! Very clever and original. I enjoyed solving it.
labsmith*um*
Aug 23, 2006

I enjoyed this teaser more than most. Was it hard to create? I hope to see more even though it took me about an hour tocomplete. I got confused on dreidel. I thought you meant one of the letters in that word not knowing that dreidels have words or symbols on them. I kept thinking "If you just picked a word with an 'n' in it, it could easily be Persian Gulf". Oh, well. Some of the others were easy and some were hard but all in all it was a hard teaser and very fun.Thank you. Can I have some more, please?
RRAMMOHAN*in*
Aug 23, 2006

Got a part of #1 and the whole of #2 - blanks for the rest! Whew, these are tough teasers, but very enjoyable!

VERY CLEVER I LIKED IT!!
QrystalAca*
Sep 14, 2006

I loved this!!! Never before has a teaser challenged me in a way that made me want to actually struggle with it to see how far I could get!! I got three, two of them were from partially getting the clues and guessing the rest...

I found #4 first, and quickly, and only because of that I was encouraged to proceed.

I then got #5, just from having aid + ??? + tick + C.

Next was #3, purr + ??? + gulf was enough for me to get it.

I should've gotten #1 next, because I was close, I just didn't "see" and that threw me off! doh!! car + ??? + be + yin + peer?gaze?

I suppose I should've also gotten #2, but all I had was: arc + ??? + owe + leg?

Of course, seeing the answers made it obvious. Really, really good job on this one. I'd love to see more like this!!
QrystalAca*
Sep 14, 2006

oh oh oh -- and I really loved the title of this. I was giggling about the title before I realized how tough the actual teaser was!!
gracieboo*
Jun 04, 2007

I got the first one and that was it. For number 3, I thought it was going to be the Gulf of Meow-ixco! (I have no idea what the names of the letters are on the dreidel...).
lkp68Aus
Jun 06, 2007

This was great fun! I'd get a few on each one and then try to see if anything I remembered from geography class (over 20 years ago) sounded similar...

I got 4 out of 5, so the brain's not dead yet.

Thanks for the fun!
dalfamnestAnz*
Aug 23, 2009

Fun and challenging - very satisfying to have found them all while eschewing thew answers!
avonmaAus*
Aug 24, 2009

I ALMOST got 'em all!
And I did get "Seal Eggs."
FUN! Thanks!

Aug 24, 2009

Missed 3 and 5...didn't have a clue about either the dreidel letter and could only think of meow...too early for my brain! Great teaser!
auntiesisAus*
Aug 24, 2009

I got a few, missed a few. All in all a great teaser, not too hard and not too easy. I really enjoyed it.
Nicky101Aus*
Aug 24, 2009

Really original, and fun! Got stuck on #3; I thought the first sound was "meow" . Five Stars!

Fun but a bit of a groaner.

Aug 25, 2012

It was sort of a good one, but some of the clues I never heard of so could not solve. Never heard of "Indie" or "rhea" Fun trying though
cutebugAus*
Aug 25, 2012

Got 4 of 5,but my brain shouldn't have to work this early in the morning.
gaylewolfAus*
Aug 25, 2012

I LOVED those!!!! I only got 2 but I gave up early! And, I got a few chuckles - thanks for posting!

elentirAus*
Aug 25, 2012

I realize that this was an old comment discussion, but everything I can find suggests acari are a subclass of arachnids. Therefore it is correct to call ticks arachnids.
HABS2933Aca*
Aug 25, 2012

LOVED it! Hard enough to be challenging but not so hard to be impossible. Got them all with a bit of work.
