Baby Animals in Japanese

13 Nov

In English, a baby dog is called a “puppy“, a baby cat is called a “kitten“, a baby bird is called a “chick“, a baby frog is called a “tadpole“, and a baby sheep is called a “lamb“.

But do you know what they’re called in Japanese?

Take this short quiz to find out (and leave a comment on this post to tell me how you did and what you think of this quiz!):

    Did the quiz but no idea how I managed. Can only say that I got kitten and lamb right as I can read the according characters :p

      Didn’t you see your results and the correct answers after you submitted the quiz?
      Is “kitten” and “lamb” written exactly the same way in Chinese (both kanji)?
      Can’t you read “puppy” too?

        Strange, did the quiz again and it shows me in the end “Quiz Completed” but no results or similar.
        The character for dog is in CHinese 狗 so didnt help me much here 🙂

        Really? I’ll check the settings on the quiz tomorrow.

        That kanji for “dog” is completely different than how it’s written in Japanese!

        I fixed the settings on this quiz. Now it will show your score and the correct answers after you hit the “Finish Quiz” button.

        Everyone, try the quiz again!
