Asking a Riley Riddle to pass the time :P

My prefix is a car,

My infix is a band,

My suffix is a degree.

I live on the ground.

What am I?

Note: "I live on the ground" means that I actually live on the ground. And all of my type lives on the ground.

Hint #1:

I live.

Inspired by LorentzB answer

Cabbage

My prefix is a car

Cab

My infix is a band

Abba

My suffix is a degree

Bage "bachelor of agricultural engineering"

I live on the ground

Obvious

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Correct answer! But I meant the suffix to be "Bage" as in "bachelor of agricultural engineering" which has to do with the cabbage plant itself. Fix it and you get the tick! $\endgroup$ – NL628 Apr 12 '18 at 18:15

=) I think I (might have) got it this time:

cabomba. However, ain't they mostly aquatic?

The prefix is:

CAB

The infix is

B.o.M

The suffix is:

MBA

Not sure whether this is the right answer, but here it goes:

vanadiums

    $\begingroup$ Oof So close! But the fact that cabomba's are aquatic doesn't really fit the riddle. You'll realize once you see the correct answer :D +1 for the nice answer! The answer does, in fact, live 100% on the ground. $\endgroup$ – NL628 Apr 12 '18 at 4:44
