  • $\begingroup$ +1 as this is very close to the correct answer and is logical enough ( considering the class Mammal of animals). But the other one is marked as correct as this question was under IQ section and not under general intelligence where knowledge and trivia is checked. $\endgroup$ – ABcDexter Jul 28 '16 at 5:28
