It’s furry, with a long tail, and has big ears if you guessed monkey, we’d make great teammates!

A new app called TailsUp! tests your animal knowledge with a Charades-like game, using verbal and physical clues to help your teammate guess the right animal.

The game, created by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to help kids and families learn more about animals, will give proceeds from in-app purchases to the AZA’s animal conservation.

A player chooses a category – like Endangered, Predators or Giants– then holds the phone to their head. He or she has one minute to guess as many animals as possible using a friend’s clues. Want an extra challenge? The hardest of the app’s three levels uses photos of the animal’s tail as the only clue.

Let’s hope you’re rear-recognition skills are up to par!
