About This Quiz

Would you describe yourself as an animal expert? What if you walked into a zoo and a mother was describing a lion to her son but wasn't calling it a lion? Would you be confused? Would you accept what she was saying or ask why she changed the name of the animal? This is the reality in many parts of the world where English is not the primary language, and it can throw you off if you're not prepared. 

After all, if you grew up in the English-speaking world, then you are used to hearing English. It makes sense that you would expect everyone to come to a consensus on what an animal's name is, but other regions around the world have completely different names for animals. That's definitely the case in Spanish-speaking regions, and Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. 

Do you know the Spanish names of these animals, from everyday critters to more exotic creatures? Can you pass this quiz where we show you the animal and you give us the Spanish name? Here's your chance to find out. If you are up for the challenge, get started and show everyone both your knowledge of animals and your ability to learn multiple languages!
