You should combine the rwo words and then try to rearrange the words to form a name of an animal.

Very nice. #5 threw me tho. Tried to come up with an insect for one answer as I couldn't get anything put together. Wombat was easy so I should have known it was a somewhat exotic animal, but that's what made it a great teaser. Great work chidam11.

I enjoyed this one. On the easy side but passed the 'put a smile on my face in the morning' test.

i don't understand . yesterday's cryptograph was two question marks and so is today's. i got all the answers today and yesterday it might as well have been chinese .
i know this is all my opinion but i was wondering who and how do they determine the difficulty level ?

I got the first three in five minutes, completely gave up on number four, and just got plain lazy on number five. I would have worked on number four until the cows came home, but would have eventually got number five. Wombat??? I probably heard of this creature on some ancient edition of National Geographic many, many years ago. Very Good.
jaydecoAus*
Feb 08, 2006

I got all but the last two..

Awesome teaser!
Vigo95Aus*
Feb 08, 2006

i was having trouble at first with number 5 then i tried writing the letters backward as a whole word to see if the change sparked my brain and it did immediately . so i hope that may help others

i only got elephant and buffalo..probably because those are the easiest !! o well fun teaser and very good!!
FulanitoGM*sv*
Feb 08, 2006

I got all 5! "Wolverine" gave me the most trouble, but I started mixing the letters around, like chidam said, and I came up with it that way. Good one! Went on my favorites...

#5 is "wine lover" surely - that's got to be a type of animal.

Feb 08, 2006

that was hard!!! I kinda got 1 or 2 of them... o well... but it was pretty good...
kimberlykayAus**
Feb 08, 2006

Okay, I liked this one too. My only problem is that, once again, it stated that it could be animal or insect. It seems to me that it is hard enough without trying to determine which of the two it could be. On a couple I struggled more b/c I kept thinking that maybe it was an insect. Anyway, that's neither here nor there, this was still a good teaser. Thanks for your hard work!

nice. it took two of us working on it, but we got it eventually. most of them we got on dumb luck, though.

I really liked this, I got it really fast to which made my day!

KK...not only that, but an insect, by definition, is an animal!

Feb 09, 2007

good one!! I got the first 4 and then couldn't get my mind away from "weevil" Surprised at myself, too, since wolverine is our state animal!

Feb 09, 2007

insects...are...animals...
lrrbttrfly*
Feb 09, 2007

Fun, but was easy. Had first four done in less than a minute. Took a few seconds over a minute to get number 5.
OldChinaHand**
Feb 09, 2007

Yeah, this was fun, but the last one lost me, I got it, but said no since I was thinking X-men,Wolverine, not a real animal. Oh, well. it was good teaser.
katjojoAus*
Feb 09, 2007

Not your "everyday" animals.
Good One!! Made you think.
coachpisco*

Wombat was the tough one.

am new to this, didnt get any, sowi
bradon182001*us*
Feb 09, 2007

Not as easy as I thought it would be. Good teaser. Made me think and I still didn't get them all.
enjaytee
Feb 09, 2007

In anagrams I always write it backwards first and then just look at it for a minute and often it will jump out. If you get right into rearranging letters then all you think about is the arranging. Just a hint to help,,,,,,
Pizzazz2uAus*
Feb 09, 2007

I have to admit, Wombat was a tough one! Fantastic teaser! Keep up the superb work!
campfirecutieAus*
Feb 09, 2007

#5 made me work but it was worth it because I got all of them!! Great job!! Keep them coming!!
doeheadAus*
Feb 09, 2007

Quite easy.If you didn,t get that one ,you must not have gotten past 6th grade.

Is a 'wolverine' a small wolver?

Feb 09, 2007

I think difficulty is hard to rate because it really depends on where a person's mind takes you. Mine went with Wiz's "Wine Lover", also!
GREAT fun, Chidam!
auntiesisAus*
Feb 09, 2007

Fun, fun, fun. I like these because they make you think. Good work.

I got only 1 & 3; hearing wombat & wolverine for the first time; glad i didn't waste my time for them:-)

cloughmeAws*
Feb 09, 2007

Well done! A bit easy, but fun nevertheless.

Keep it up!
Trishgal*us*
Feb 09, 2007

got them all besides #5 i liked this teaser, made me think, yet was not too hard. i was kinda stuck on #5 being some type of weevil . THX. send another
QrystalAca*
Feb 09, 2007

Schweet. That was fun, and I got them all. My tactic is just to jumble the letters around in semi-pronouncible ways, and see if it reminds me of what I'm supposed to be looking for.

For example:
4. Bow, Mat
mabwot
wombat!

The one that took the longest (6 jumbles) was wolverine, and the shortest (1 jumble!) was gazelle, because the first syllable that came to mind was "gaz" which made it pretty easy.

Anyways, I'm starting to really like anagrams!! Moooooorrrrrre please!
cassiemarkAus*

Very good
ViaTunisi*
Feb 09, 2007

Pretty easy, although the mention of "an insect" in the introduction was a bit tricky.
breathesunshineAus*
Feb 09, 2007

I got all 5 in a matter of minutes. I do the same with these that a couple others mentioned, change the sequence of the letters around until something clicks. Great puzzle!
Synlapse*

Got first 4 easily. I'm from Michigan and I can't believe I had trouble with wolverine.
speedqueenkmwAus*
Feb 10, 2007

Really love these and I got them all but why did you say could be an insect when they were all animals?
wordmama*
Feb 10, 2007

Doehead, that was a rude comment. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses....

I found the mention of insects in the instructions unnecessary and distracting--hence, missed wolverine but enjoyed getting the first four.
lmurray*cn*
Feb 10, 2007

BU TAI CUO (NOT TOO BAD)

EASY TO BE SURE, BUT I DOUBT MANY PRE-MIDDLE SCHOOLERS WOULD HAVE GOTTEN ALL OF THESE.

WOMBAT WAS THE EASIEST, ALMOST INSTANTANEOUS.
HScott13Aen*
Feb 12, 2007

Got the first four no problem. Got too sidetracked trying to make a type of owl or weevil out of the 5th.
suprfrek96Aus*

The last one got me.

Good Job!

Feb 11, 2010

I got them all except wolverine.
sunnybonghits*
Feb 11, 2010

Sorry, but this was kind of dumb. The two words had nothing to do with the final answer, so it might as well just have been a word jumble.
patiencewithaP*us*
Feb 11, 2010

Fun! I missed wolverine too.
craniacAus*
Feb 11, 2010

Practice at teasers is definitely making a difference. The first time this was teaser of the day, I rated it hard. This time I got all but wolverine in just a couple of minutes.

Feb 11, 2013

Because of the late hour I was not going to bother and then changed my mind and got them all in a very short time. Good teaser and I liked it even though it wqas easy for me.
bluejubba***
Feb 11, 2013

Good teaser, I got all except the last one
cutebugAus**
Feb 11, 2013

Got them again. Response is still 6.
gaylewolfAus*
Feb 11, 2013

I love anagrams and got them all but Wolverine - I should be ashamed! I'm from Michigan and wolverine is our state animal Thanks for a good one! To all my friends to the east troubled by winter - keep warm!
davidrools*
Feb 11, 2013

much fun! didn't get the wolverine. nor-weevil isn't real. I thought for sure it had to be an insect with your tricky description!
iggy39Aus*
Feb 11, 2013

Good one, I found it easy but really liked it. I haven't been getting Briangle in my inbox lately. Hmmmm!!! Don't know what happened. I really missed it.
