Why is not "The animal is LONG" (as if snake) accepted? Is it a Duolingo mistake or would you use actually some other word to express this?

"Das Tier ist hoch" is wrong. It should say "Das Tier ist groß". It still means "tall", though, not "long". The German for "long" is "lang".

Yes I agree , "hoch" is usually used for describing a building (Das Gebäude ist hoch) or a tree (Der Baum ist hoch).
