@QM:

«I think the previous commenters overlooked the questions!...»

May be this is true. And i'm repeating myself and this isn't my very best day. But i don't give up. Else i won't sleep tonight.

So please tell us: what is your solution?

    I didn't have a solution in mind. There's the simplistic AI that asks you for a distinguishing question and records the answer every time it guesses wrong. To get beyond that you would need a matrix of questions, and answers for each animal; or otherwise generate a semantic database and minimize the categories and question tree. I think it ends up being something like generating a minimal cover set (but I'm fuzzy on this).

      Thanks QM for the explanation.

      Best regards, Karl

      P.S.: For the mere mortals, like me:
