We visited our local zoo this weekend (to feed my zoo addiction, it had been awhile), and when I got home, as usual, I decided to research some of the animals we observed. As I was researching these animals on the internet, I came across some ultra-cute baby animal pics, and I thought I might make a fun game on my blog of having people guess which animal is what type of baby – HAVE FUN! Don’t worry about posting your guesses – other people can just ignore them or use them as hints if they get stuck.
Here is an added picture of the same type of animal, a little older – per a request in the comments for a better picture:

1/6 for Mysmichelle… thanks for playing! I’ll put up the correct answers in a few days.
I got all but one. 🙂 The last one I did not get.
It looks like a
A bigger picture would help, but maybe a hamster??
A chicken? Some bird anyway. 😉
JustJ is also 1/6.
I added another picture of the same species of #4 to help out since the creature blended into the hand.
#2 could be considered a trick question. And #6 is a bird, but it’s going to be difficult to pinpoint which one… I guess I could drop a hint, but I’ll wait for more guesses.
Ok, I was just hoping for a larger picture of #4, but now it looks like something in the parrot family. Seeing how small it was, maybe a parakeet?
Trick question on #2 Ok then A tiglon or liger (depends on the mother I think)
#6 — baby peacock/peahen?
Those are the ones I thought I guessed wrong, now I have to look at the other three to see which ones I guessed wrong.
#1 Oops that is too big for a mole Baby echidna?
#3 Baby gopher Tortoise
JustJ has significantly increased his percentage of correct answers, that’s all I’m going to say…
Oh, and I will also say that perhaps my intro is misleading – not all of these animals are found at our local zoo.
I’m just going to guess the first one….is it a duck billed platypus?????
Any answers I would have said have already been guessed, so I think I’ll just sit back and wait for the answers. 🙂
Think most people have guessed, so here are the answers:
1. duck-billed platypus (it looks fetal, which is how you can tell it’s a marsupial. And the duck bill is SO cute at this age – it looks like some sort of naked mini-muppet!)
2. Liger – I said it was a trick question because this is a man-made species.
4a. and 4b. parakeet
6. peacock – I knew this would be tough since many baby birds look alike, but I think there were some correct guesses.
Congrats to those of you with correct answers, and thanks for playing! It was fun for me to be able to share these super-cute baby animal pics!
I had two correct. 🙂
