A brainteaser is sort of a puzzle which requires thought to solve. So, among lots of puzzles, I decided to select the most interesting brainsteasers to share with you.

Hidden in each sentence is the name of an animal. Each can be found either in
the middle of a word or by combining the end of one word with the beginning of
the next, such as:
Marc owns a sporting goods store.
The hidden animal in this sentence is cow!

Here is a challenge for you guys, if you find out the hidden animal prove it!
