Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. dik-dik

Answer: antelope

The dik-dik is a small antelope that lives in Africa. Dik-diks don't form herds like regular antelope. They pair off and each pair defends their territories. They are roughly a foot to a foot and a half tall at the shoulders.
2. sugar glider

Answer: marsupial

Sugar gliders are small possums that inhabit parts of Australia and New Guinea. They have a flap of loose skin on both sides of their body so when they stretch out their legs, the skin acts like a sort of wing which allows them to glide from tree to tree much like the flying squirrel. They strip bark from trees in order to suck the sweet sap from the tree.
3. tasseled wobbegong

Answer: shark

The tasseled wobbegong is a shark that is flat and lies on the bottom of the sea floor and camouflages itself to resemble its surroundings. Its edges look like a frayed carpet or tassels. It lies still on the bottom and then pounces on its prey when it swims by.
4. hellbender
