Which Animal is Fake?

Our Animal Name Guessing Game for Kids – Halloween Edition

When we need to pass the time, we often play the game, “Which animal is fake?”

It works by saying two REAL animals’ names and including a third animal’s name that is not real. The family has to guess which animal on the list is the fake animal. It’s lots of fun and is a great time-passer while waiting in line, taking family hikes, or riding in the car together. The trickier the better!
