Not really. How many lives did the Americans on the French train save?

I can eliminate A and C right off. I'm pretty sure D is right, so with some trepidation I'd go with B.

I recognized the word Capra from Capricorn. Every contestant should study the Zodiac.

5K: I even saw the movie, a rarity for me, & the "star" was so overshadowed by another of the cast that I can't even remember star's name. So it wasn't Adams, who I would have remembered, who has more star quality. ATA

20K: Well, I know its not C or D. Which rigged 50/50 would take out. Know bison are not buffalo, but they're not asking that. Capra should have tipped me off, but didn't. Thought all goats climbed mountains, there was no seperate species. Likely would have guessed A & been out here.

Heroes probably don't have to take test. And some do better than some of us non-heroes who did take test. At least this wonderful woman knew when to leave.

Having looked them up, the species "mountain goat" looks bovine, which their official full name says they are.

Fooled me, as real goats live on mountains too (go, Heidi's grandfather's flock!).

Mountain goats are only as bovine as all the other goats.

The family bovidae includes cattle, sheep, goats, antelope, buffalo, bison, muskox, and, yes, mountain goats.

Mountain goats split away from the more "bovine" species into the sub-family caprinae which also includes all the goats and sheep. Mountain goats only split away from the other goats when you get to the split into the genera Capra "true goats" and Oreamnos of which Mountain Goats are the only existing member. In the scientific name of Mountain Goats, Oreamnos americanus the "ore" means mountain in Latin. That is the same as the Oro/e- in words like orographic, study of mountains, and Oread, a mountain nymph. The "amnos" bit is lamb.
