Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Female wren

Answer: Jenny

A Jenny wren is a small brown bird with a beautiful singing voice. The term has been used for centuries; Shakespeare mentioned Jenny Wren in his "Merry Wives of Windsor, and she was a character in "Our Mutual Friend" by Charles Dickens. In addition, Jenny Wren appears in Mother Goose rhymes, and was the sweetheart of Robin Redbreast in a 1894 poem.
2. Baby kangaroo

Answer: Joey

The term "joey" is actually used for the young of many marsupials, including the koala bear! It is believed that the name is derived from an Australian Aboriginal term for kangaroo, and is also used there to describe young children.
3. Male goat

Answer: Billy

The goat is one of the oldest domesticated animals in the world. One of the earliest references to the term "billy goat" is a Norwegian folktale, "Three Billy Goats Gruff", that was published in 1841.
4. Group of rabbits

Answer: Warren

The use of the term "warren" for a group of rabbits dates to the fourteenth century in England. It can be used to identify an area of uncultivated land where rabbits breed or the actual structure where they are kept and bred.
5. Male duck

Answer: Drake

The term "drake" for a male duck originated during the Middle Ages in England. Like many other bird species, the drake has more brightly colored plumage than the female, which is called a hen.
6. Female ferret

Answer: Jill

The term "jill" is very popular among females in the animal kingdom. In addition to the ferret, it is also used to describe a female kangaroo, opossum, wallaby, and weasel.
7. Male cat

Answer: Tom

Henry Fielding published "The Life and Adventures of a Cat" in 1760; the cat's name was Tom! A female cat is called a "queen", and a baby is a "kitten".
8. Male wombat or wallaby

Answer: Jack

Wombats have the largest brain of all marsupials, and are known to be very clever in digging alternate exits to their burrows when the entrances are blocked. A female wombat is called a "jill".
9. Female mule

Answer: Molly

A mule is a hybrid animal; it is the offspring between a male donkey and a female horse. The female mule, which can have dominant physical characteristics from either parent, is called a Molly Mule or Mare Mule. Overall, mules are considered to be less cantankerous, faster, and smarter than donkeys!
10. Juvenile male turkey

Answer: Jake

The tail feathers show the difference between a juvenile male turkey, the jake, and an adult, which is called a tom. While the adult has tail feathers that are the same length, younger males have longer feathers in the middle. Of course, the beard on a adult is longer too.
