What Animal starts with "X"?

We spend ALOT of time in the car. Parker reads a lot and LOVES it which is good since our DVD player broke and the boys can no longer watch movies as we are on our neverending commutes. However, one day Parker came up with a game he wanted us all to play. It's a little twist to the "Alphabet" game or "State" game that we have played over and over again.
We each took turns and had to come up with an Animal that started with "A", "B", "C", and so on. The first person that couldn't come up with one loses. Let's just say .. it's tougher than it sounds. What animal starts with "X"????
We have also done this with "Foods" and "Candy".
Boy - the things we do to entertain ourselves on car rides! :)

I am sure everyone knows that an XIPHOSURAN is a type of horseshoe crab.

Those are the memories that the boys will always remember. The good kind. We also do the Alphabet game off of signs and license plates. We sing songs too. We usually get more than direction from someone about who can sing which part...but still. ha ha

You should look into the cd of "Animal Alphabet songs" by David Polansky - it has a whole song about animals whose name begins with "X".
