    This is the Asian elephant!

    It's an Indian Peahen (a.k.a a female peacock)!

    Peacock is only used to refer to the male of the species, in the same way that cockerel is used to refer to male chickens. Peahen refers to the female of the species, and peafowl is the inclusive term.

    This is the leopard!

    The other cat is a jaguar, which tend to be stockier than leopards and have a longer tail. The most obvious difference, though, is that the pattern on a leopard features small rosettes, whereas on jaguars they are larger with spots inside them. They are both members of the Panthera genus, and black cats referred to as black panthers can be either jaguars or leopards.

    The offspring of a lioness and a tiger is called a Tigon.

    A male lion and a female tiger would create a Liger. Both variations of the hybrid offspring have characteristics of both species, including manes in males and potential stripes or spots. Unlike ligers, tigons do not exceed the size of either parent species.

    All the other statements are true. Oysters really can change their gender, koalas really do have a single outlet (known as a cloaca) for their intestinal, urinary and genital tracts , like many marsupials, and hippos really are deadly killers.
