Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In the Amazon rain forest you could find a great variety of animals, but which of these mammals would you NOT find?

Answer: camel

A camel would not survive in the conditions of the Amazon forest, preferring open dry areas. The jaguar is the third largest big cat after the tiger and the lion and the only one found in South America, the tapir is a heavy creature, somewhat like a pig that has a short flexible proboscis.

It is related to the rhinoceros. The howler monkey is found in South America and, as its name suggests, its call can be heard over several miles.
2. The Great Barrier Reef - here we have corals and the fish that live among them. Which of the following would you NOT find there?

Answer: A lemon sole

The lemon sole is found in the shallow seas around Europe where it likes to live on stony bottoms. The clown fish is the bright little orange and white fish that Disney/Pixar called Nemo in their film. Both sea worms and sea cucumbers have many types and are found worldwide.
3. In the darkness of caves throughout the world, many creatures find their home. Which of these animals is NOT likely to choose a cave for its home?

Answer: Lemur

Lemurs are furry mammals that live, mainly in trees, on the island of Madagascar, and, unless they have been taken there by humans, they are found no where else. Many bats use caves for roosting, and certain snakes find good hunting in a cave, especially if they can reach the bats, which they sometimes do by hanging from their tails and drooping across the bats' fly path. Blind fish live in the pools within the caves and have lost their eyes because, having lived in the dark for so long, they do not need them.
4. An English meadow is the home of butterflies as well as many other creatures. Which of these butterflies does not naturally live there, in other words is not a native species?

Answer: Monarch

As well as being a bird, a peacock is also a butterfly - you didn't think I would be as obvious as that, did you?. Red admirals and tortoiseshells are also beautiful specimens of English winged beauties. A monarch butterfly is also beautiful, but very much an American native.
5. The North American plains - here are miles of rolling grassland but there are areas of bushy thickets and rocky outcrops. Which of these creatures would hate to find itself there?

Answer: Sloth

The sloth is the creature that hangs upside down from the branches in the Amazon rain forest. In North America, the bison, also known as the buffalo, is the large lumbering creature that became almost extinct when it was over hunted in the 19th century and also suffered from fatal illnesses.

The turkey vulture can be found throughout most of the Americas and is a carrion eating bird. The porcupine would prefer those bushy thickets for its home.
6. A rock pool is an area of water trapped between the rocks as the tide recedes. Some small creatures live on the bottom and other small ones also become trapped there. Which one is large enough to avoid that fate?

Answer: A red mullet

A rock pool is one of the small areas of water where children love to explore the local sea life. Unless it is too small to be identified, a red mullet would not be in a rock pool but small shore crabs are often found there, likewise the little brown blenny which is the small fish often seen and also the razor clam, so called because its shell is the shape of an old fashioned cutthroat razor.
7. In the frozen seas around Alaska and on the shoreline there, which of these creatures would be very out of place?

Answer: Mandrill

A mandrill is a large primate from Africa with long incisors which make them very dangerous. Polar bears are found in the snow, on ice floes and rocky shores in the north. Their favourite food is seal meat, so they usually stay close to water where they can hunt.

The ringed seal is one of the most commonly caught by them. The eider duck is renowned for the thick layer of very soft down which keeps it warm and is used for making bed covers.
8. The Highlands of Scotland are a beautiful area of heathland and pine forest. Many of the creatures that live there are unique to that kind of area. Which one of these would you NOT expect to find there?

Answer: Salamander

Reptiles and amphibians are rare because of the harsh conditions so a salamander which is a kind of amphibian would not like to have this place for its home. The capercaillie is a bird, a large kind of grouse well suited in diet, size and shape to survive there and the red deer are plentiful and provide excellent shooting for huntsmen from the big estates or holidaying from towns.

This is one of the few places in Britain where red squirrels survive.
9. The Himalayan highlands are steep and rocky and often covered in thick snow, so only three of these creatures would like to call them home. Which is the odd one out?

Answer: Elephant

The elephant, despite Hannibal taking some across the Alps, is not made for walking on steep rocky slopes, nor would it like the cold. The snow leopard is a secretive creature that manages to hunt, among other things, wild goats. In the coldest weather it wraps itself in its extra long, extra thick and fluffy tail for warmth as it sleeps in the snow.

Many tigers do not mind the snow and survive surprisingly well here. The yak is the big animal the local people tame, breed and use as other people use cows.
10. In the Australian Outback there are many strange creatures, but which of these would not be there?

Answer: Lynx

Lynx come mainly from Europe, especially around the Pyrenees. They are members of the cat family. This is the native home of the budgerigar, where they fly in large flocks from water hole to water hold. Wombats are like heavy, solid mammalian tanks that trundle around the countryside, sometimes digging beneath the farmer's fences if they are in the way. Camels? Well, although not native to the country, camels were brought as working animals, but now through escapes and being set free, herds of camel wander the deserts and survive there very well.
