Here is a quick, one question quiz for the willing:

Name this mammal:

It is named after a celestial body.

It's cousins are sticky subjects.

This creature looks as if it had been caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place.

It smells like a skunk, but is not related to the mustelids.

It has the nose of an opossum with a split difference, and wears a mask like the Lone Ranger.

Hi yo Silver, away!
