Only 1 In 7 People Can Correctly Guess These Pets Based On Their Dictionary Definition!
by Heather Cahill

"Fluffy munchkins" will not be found in the dictionary to define your pet kitty. However, "A small domesticated carnivorous mammal with soft fur, a short snout, and retractable claws," will define your finicky feline. And if you own a turtle or ferret, the definitions can get more obtuse. 

This brain-teaser of a quiz will have you looking at your household pet in a whole new light. Take, for instance, a snake or as the Oxford Dictionary puts it, "A long limbless reptile which has no eyelids, a short tail, and jaws that are capable of considerable extension." That definition surely has you concentrating on the lidless gaze and not on the big personality your snake may have. 

Just remember, dictionaries need to provide the broadest definition of an animal. Otherwise, it would be a daunting task to try to categorize the large number of different species based on more specific details like color, shape, tail size, and other characteristics. 

You probably can name several animals that fit this description: "A gregarious burrowing plant-eating mammal, with long ears, long hind legs, and a short tail." Deer, rabbit, long-eared mouse, are just some of the names that may come to mind. 

Find out if you're the one in seven people who can correctly guess the pets based on their dictionary definition. Take the quiz now.
