Predator and Prey Scramble

Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.

Category:Language
Submitted By:skittledewzoo*us****

 

 

 



Unscramble the words below and follow the instructions in parentheses.

1. REDE (Take the 3rd letter)

2. SAVEREB (Take the 4th letter)

3. HERSWS (Take the 5th letter)

4. OSINB (Take the 4th letter)

5. SOMEO (Take the 4th letter)

6. LETANPOE (Take the 5th letter)

Now unscramble the letters you got to find your answer.

2. BEAVERS, V

3. SHREWS, W

4. BISON, O

5. MOOSE, S

6. ANTELOPE, L

EVWOSL unscrambles to become WOLVES. Wolves have been known to hunt deer, beavers, shrews, bison, moose, and antelope, among other things. Although a pack of wolves generally likes bigger game like bison, a single wolf will eat smaller things like shrews. They will even eat earthworms and fruits if they must.

Didn't have time today to unscramble and put letters together. Should have waited until later. I did figure out the first word, then quit. Sorry.

Good one. I kept getting "bereaves" instead of beavers, until I saw I was adding an extra E. Next time I'll use pen & paper!

Nice job. I enjoy word mujbles (that's "jumbles" jumbled).

Nov 22, 2006

I got the words but forgot the topic. So I came up with "vowels" for my answer. I make the simplest teasers into rocket science.

i feel sorry for the poor wolf who has to survive on shrews ...btw, if you like wolves, you'll like the book "The Loop", written by the same guy who brought you "The Horse Whisperer".....lol

Nice job. I also came up with vowels, but then remembered the title and all the rest were animals so figured it had to be wolves. Thnks for subitting.

LOL I came up with vowels too!

Good one!

Lots of fun! Easy with pencil and paper, but still required enough thinking to work it out. That's the way I like'em!

Fantastic teaser! Easy enough, yet divided enough to get an individuals mind working. WTG Keep creating them!

I really like that one! I'm kinda braindead (it's break, what do you expect!0 so it took me a while, but the idea was really clever!

The wolves were hiding too well for me, and I was stuck wondering what VOWELS have to do with predator and prey...

DARN!

Feste is right, they will eat a cat if they can find one. They also eat foxes, livestock, birds and bear cubs. Not to mention that the ones that live in the Far North will grab a seal if it finds one. Great Job!

A good teaser. I was going to complain that you mixed singular and plural, but then I realized they are all plural.

Hey, how do you get points? I am really wondering.... only have 26 and I want 250! Hahaz. But how do you? Anyone may tell me. I have been looking forward for posting my own teasers, and then today my account was six days old, and I try to make a teaser, but it says you only have 26 points, and you need 250.! I am so bummed!): Sorry I had to come to you. Your teaser was the first teaser I saw, and I don't have any friends that I can message this, and noyone will answer on my post! Thanks.

WHAT??? All these animals were killed by VOWELS? Makes "Wheel of Fortune" seem a little more dangerous.
animallover2000*gl*
Nov 23, 2009

Dsjt, there were killled by Wolves. What did you guess? Vowels? I guessed right. It seems that I was practically the only one who did. Haha

I got them all even though I struggled with shrews. I did not know that was an animal, but was the only word I could get from the scramble. My son finally informed me it was an animal Good teaser!

I got all the scrambled words right, but my answer was "vowels" - crazy for someone with the name of Wolf!
I'm still laughing at myself!
