Possibly the manliest sentence I've seen on Duolingo yet.

I guess it's nice that they incorporate humour into the lessons... :P

Is there an idiom in Italian equivalent to what we would say in English: "I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse"? Grazie!

You searched for 'orso' which means bear. Cavallo means horse.

Whoopsy.. I thought she asked if this specific phrase is the Italian equivalent of "I could eat a horse". :P

Anyways.. from what I've found, there is a phrase "mi mangerei un cavallo" (I could eat a horse), but the more common variant is "mi mangerei un bue" (I could eat an ox). Even "mangerei un orso" (I could eat a bear) is sometimes used. but rarely. :)

I also think they are trying to incorporate verbs/ vocab we've already learned such as 'mangiare' it wouldnt make sense for them to say - I hunt bears or something to that extent

Tried it. Their meat is too tough and chewy. I prefer delfini.
