About This Quiz

"S" is the 19th letter of the alphabet, and one of the most-used. Because of this, we find that many words begin with it. This also stands true for the animals of the world. There are hundreds of them that begin with "s" and we've gone through lots of them to find some to quiz you on today. 

Sure, you'll find the easy ones, like sheep, snowy owl, seal, skunk, and snake. But we also had to add in a challenging element and include some animals you may have no idea even existed. They include the sand lizard, snowshoe, saola, sun bear, sea dragon, and serval. And we want you to match them all to their pictures. 

Now, this may sound easy, but all the wrong options also begin with the letter "s," making for a somewhat confusing, fun and challenging quiz. But if you know your animals as well as you think you do, it should be a piece of cake. Come show us that you can name every single one of these animals whose name begins with the 19th letter of the alphabet.
