Puzzle 117 Solve the puzzle and guess the theme animal!

Here are the rules:

1. You may only guess one character (letter or number) at a time.

2. After you have guessed a character, you must wait for another player to guess before you can go again.

3. The host of the game responding to a guess does not count as a turn. Should you choose a character, then receive a response from the member host, you must wait for the next member to guess.

4. One point will be awarded for each correct character, 2 points for vowels.

5. Only six misses are allowed in the game.

6. If you wish to guess the phrase, send it to me via Pet Talk personal email. [This is accessible via the 'PM' or 'Profile' buttons on any of my posts.]
DO NOT post it on the forum. If you wish to guess a letter, post it on the forum.

7. You must have submitted a correct character to submit your solution. Unlike letters, if you submit a wrong solution, you are disqualified from continuing in that puzzle.

8. The player who correctly guesses the phrase wins the game. If no one has guessed it correctly after six misses, then the player with the most points wins the game.

And here is what you win...you get to create the next puzzle. (Should you win the game, and do not care to host the next puzzle, you may pass your puzzle play to the member with the next highest points)

Here is the puzzle:

---- ------ -- - ----, -----_-------, ------ -------- ------. -- -- --- ------- -- ------ ----_------ -------, ---- - ----. -------- ----- --- --- ----- ----- ------- --- -- --- ----- ---. ----- ------- ---- ----- -- --- ----- -------, ---------: ----- ----, ----- --- --- ------ ----. ---- ------- ---- --- ---- ------ ----------- ------- ----- -------- -------- -- ----- ---. --- ------- ------ -- ----- ----- ---- ------, ----, ------ --- ----- -------. --- ------ ------- -----, ----- -- -----, --- ---- - ------- ----- ---. -------- ------ ------- --------- --- --- ---. ---- --- -- --- ----- -------------. ---- --- -- ----- -- ---------, ----------, --- ------ -- ------ --- ----- -- ----. ---- --- ---- -- -- -- -----, ----- -,--- _ --,--- ------ -- ---- - ---, -- ----- ---- --% -- --------. --- ---- -------- -----, -- -------, ----, -----, -----, -----, --- -----. - ---- -------- - --- -- ----- ------ ---- ------- --- --- ------ -- -- --- -- ------- -- ----------.

Characters (Letters/Numbers) left to guess:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

P.S. I know it's unusual to include numbers on these puzzles -- at first I was going to spell them out, then decided to modify the format slightly. Let's try it and see.

P.P.S. The article I extracted from is in one type of units. I plan to convert it to make this more universal once enough of the puzzle's exposed to not give away too many letters. (And, :o to give me time to look up conversion tables to see how to convert them. It's been a while.)

Puzzle 117 Solve the puzzle and guess the theme animal!



Here is the puzzle:

This animal is a huge, thick_skinned, almost hairless mammal. It is the largest of extant four_footed animals, with a long, flexible snout and two ivory tusks growing out of the upper jaw. These animals were seen in the films Jumangi, Operation: Dumbo Drop, Dumbo and The Jungle Book. They evolved from the even larger prehistoric mammoth which appeared millions of years ago. The mammoth roamed in great herds over Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. The oldest mammoth bones, found in India, are over 4 million years old. Mammoths became extinct following the Ice Age. They are in the order Proboscideans. They can be found in woodlands, grasslands, and forests in Africa and parts of Asia. They can live up to 70 years, weigh 5,000 _ 14,000 pounds and stand 6_12 feet at the shoulder. In the wild, they spend most of their day looking for food, needing 400_600 pounds of food a day, of which only 40% is digested. The diet includes grass, tree foliage, bark, twigs, herbs, roots, and fruit. A herd averages 4 mph in their single file walking but can charge at 25 mph if angered or frightened.

Karen successfully solved the puzzle and correctly identified the mystery animal as a rabbit!!! (Okay, it's the elephant, getting a little punchy here...) She waives the right to host the next puzzle. High points at 600!!! is Delidog.
