I made a connect wall about animals:

tarsier         ascidian           aye-aye       

caecilian       diplocaulus        bird

marsupial       amphiuma           hagfish

fish            lamprey            mammals                                   

There are 4 categories containing 3 words each.

Category 1 hint:

A type of cap and gown

Category 2 hint:

any animal with a backbone

OK, my answer was getting long. If you want to see my other tries, look at the edit history. Here goes another shot!

nocturnal animals - marsupial, tarsier, aye-aye. chordates - hagfish, lamprey, ascidian. amphibians - diplocaulus, amphiuma, caecilian. vertebrates - birds, fish, mammals.

Now technically my second and fourth classes could switch some, since (

Despite not having a backbone, hagfish are considered vertebrates. Lampreys are vertebrates as well, if I remember correctly.


  • $\begingroup$ how was my new try? $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Dec 30 '18 at 19:52
  • $\begingroup$ still a bit of. $\endgroup$ – user55903 Dec 30 '18 at 20:19
  • $\begingroup$ ahhhhhh!!! Now we're talking. Though I still have no clue how the cap and gown is related lol $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Dec 31 '18 at 2:11
  • $\begingroup$ 3/4 the other category is correct just hasn’t got the right name $\endgroup$ – user55903 Dec 31 '18 at 9:43
  • $\begingroup$ close, chordates, and nocturnal animals are correct. The other groups have the wrong names and maybe animals. Hint: you were right before the edit $\endgroup$ – user55903 Dec 31 '18 at 16:16

I think it’s:

tarsier, aye-aye, hagfish, lamprey: these are common name species of animals


Ascidian, caecilian, diplocaulus, amphiuma: these are Latin classifications of animals

And finally:

Bird, marsupial, fish, mammals: these are common names of animal classes

  • $\begingroup$ Nice try! It is 4 groups of 3 and they are all a bit off $\endgroup$ – user55903 Dec 25 '18 at 10:03

An attempt, most likely some wrong:

  1. Caecilians, diplocaulus and amphiuma are all groups of amphibians

  2. Ascidian, hagfish, lamprey are all sea creatures (two fish and a sea squirt)

  3. Aye-aye and tarsier are both lemurs, and both mammals

  4. I would have said bird, mammal, fish here, as these are the major divisions, however the two animals in point three are not marsupials, so that is the only word left

  • $\begingroup$ +1 for getting 1 group correct $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Dec 27 '18 at 17:40
  • $\begingroup$ @OmegaKrypton Thanks. I wonder which one... $\endgroup$ – hat Dec 27 '18 at 19:08
  • $\begingroup$ I guess group 1 is the correct one $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Dec 28 '18 at 9:51
