2. Prairie dog.
They do live on prairies and open grasslands in North America, but they’re definitely rodents, not dogs. They get that name from their call that apparently sounds a bit like a bark (you can judge for yourself whether it actually does).
4. Flying fox.
For starters this is a bat and not a fox. But they’re not really like the small bats we have in Europe or North America. They have excellent eyesight and smell, but no echolocation. And they have a wingspan that can reach 5 feet wide. Foxes do not have wings.
Ok, so it is a fish but its definitely not a lion. Their stripes serve both as a close-up warning to predators that the fish is poisonous, and as camouflage that breaks up its the outline from far away. Just saying but maybe tigerfish would have been a better name. (It doesn’t even have a mane).
8. Honey badger.
More anatomically similar to weasels, honey badgers are native to Africa and parts of Asia and are pretty ferocious. They got their name because they were assigned to a subfamily of badgers in 1860, before anyone realised they’re not actually very badger-like at all.
