My brother is doing a general knowledge test and we are struggling to find the answers for three questions: What are a young hare, a young falcon and a young owl called?

A young hare (especially one less than a year old) is called a "leveret", of all things. The word comes from the Latin word for hare, lepus. Even stranger, baby falcons (particularly those to be trained for falconry) are eyases. More predictably, a young owl is an owlet. LOL
