Tortue Marine should be Sea Turtle, since 'marine' means 'sea' (same in English).

Tortue can also translate into Turtle, no?

Thank you! I fix it (:

    Maybe you could explain the articles that go with each animal. Ex: Poisson= le Poisson

    Le poisson!!! ;) ;) ;) (you know what I mean)

    One small thing: 'une langouste' is a spiny (palinurid) lobster, whereas your silhouette shows a clawed lobster ('un homard').


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Priichuuu

    Ohh, thank you! I didn't know it :)

    Wow, I'm not learning French but that's pretty cool!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/amanthasoo

    It looks like when you have two words you are listing the masculine first, feminine second. But why are there two words for owl?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/garpike

    I believe 'un hibou' refers to an owl with ear tufts, whereas 'une chouette' is a crestless owl. A lot of languages seem to make the same distinction.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Priichuuu

    In spanish, we know two animals: "Búho" and "Lechuza". I did it first in French-Spanish, so when I translated it in english... There isn't a different word for every one!
