Why is there a hyphen (-) in this sentence?

The dash is a stand in for the missing copula (to be verb). Strictly speaking, it is necessary punctuation, but Duolingo doesn't count it and it isn't spoken.

The program accepts for "Слон - це тваріна" and "Слон - це тварина". Are both correct? Is it dialect-dependent?

There are no тваріна in Ukrainian, exist only the word тварина

Thanks. Why does Duolingo accept it then? Is it a result of accepting romanized translations? If so, this has got to end... lots of incorrect answers are certainly being accepted.

Just a mistake, I think so.

Що різниця між 'слон тварина' і 'слон це тварина' ??

Немає різниці між виразами "Слон - це тварина." і "Слон - тварина."
