Tuesday Trivia (April 26, 2016)

Sam here. Everyone knows that dogs have pups and cats have kittens, but do you know what other animal babies are called? Here is the first of two lists mom and I found to test your knowledge:

  1. Armadillo
  2. Badger
  3. Camel
  4. Dragonfly
  5. Emu
  6. Ferret
  7. Gerbil
  8. Hedgehog
  9. Ibex
  10. Jackal
  11. Koala
  12. Β Llama






  1. Pup/baby
  2. Cub/kit
  3. Calf
  4. Nymph
  5. Chick/hatchling
  6. Kit
  7. Pup
  8. Hoglet/Piglet/Pup
  9. Kid
  10. Pup
  11. Joey
  12. Cria

How well did you do? Interesting so many babies are identified as ‘pup,’ don’t you think? Don’t feel badly, mom and I totally bombed. I mean, whoever heard of a ‘cria‘ other than maybe a mama llama?? Ha, looks like I’m a poet! Be sure to check out the last part of alphabet babies next week.

Live, love, bark! <3

  1. The only one I got right was the koala/joey. I just call them all “babies”, no matter the species, and swooned over the Joey and the baby hedgehog. 😍

  2. Omg my next pet will be a hoglet – a few stuck spines is better than busted face any day! (sorry to all your readers for the inside joke)

    1. I know…hard to fathom. Emu babies are considered chicks or hatchlings (can you really call them babies when they’re 4 ft. tall by 3 months?!). A group of them is called a mob and rightly so. πŸ˜‰ I’m guessing the conventional nomenclature describes them as chicks after several days given their size.

  3. I got only 1! I should have gotten 2 because I knew the dragonfly one – it just slipped my mind. I think a lot are called “pup” because we all know that dogs are the best!!! πŸ˜‰
