Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Flashy bird

Brilliantly coloured diving birds, kingfishers of various species are found all over the world. They are characterized by the bright flash they make when plunging into a river to catch a fish. Believe it or not, they are related to hornbills and hoopoes.
2. Motion Maths

Kinematics may be called the mathematics of motion. It is part of the science of kinetics, but deals only with motion and not with mass or force. It has also been called "the geometry of motion", but while geometry deals with space only, kinematics also takes account of time. It is concerned with the design of such things as linkages and cams.
3. Chief scavenger

A large vulture found in tropical mainland America, it can have a wingspan of five feet. It is often first at a fresh carcass, and if it isn't it will chase smaller vultures away.
4. Boss man

King is a title going back centuries and was originally given to the leader of a tribal group. Eventually the title covered leaders of a tribe, a race, a nation or a state. Men became kings on account of their physical or mental superiority.
In time (from about the time of Charlemagne) the title became associated with territory rather than tribal or national. King of the land, not the people.
In modern times kings have little real power, and have become largely ceremonial figures.
5. Astringent gum

Kino is the name for juice extracted from certain types of tree and dried naturally. It resembles catechu. The original comes from an East Indian tree, while there is also Gambian kino from West Africa, Bengal kino from India and Botany Bay kino from a type of eucalyptus tree. Kino contains tannin and gum and is a powerful astringent. Kino actually has many meanings, but this is the only one that fits the clue.
6. Childish plot?

My pun is based on the translation of kindergarten from the German, which means a garden for children. The original name for such a nursery school for little children was coined by Friedrich Froebel who started such a school in 1837 in the village of Blankenberg in the Thuringian Forest of Germany. Similar schools had actually existed earlier in Strasbourg and Bavaria.

The basic premise of the kindergarten was "to awaken the bodily and mental powers of children by songs, games and exercises".
7. Water Babies' father?

Charles Kingsley was an English clergyman (1819-1875) who wrote poems and sermons, and a number of popular novels. One of these was "Westward Ho!", the famous adventure story of seamen and explorers. A very popular story for children was "The Water Babies", a moral story criticising the use of small children for climbing the chimneys of big houses to sweep them of accumulated soot.

He introduced the immortal characters of the vindictive "Mrs Be-Done-By-As-You-Did" and the kind "Mrs Do-As-You-Would-Be-Done-By".

Kinkajous live in the northern part of South America, and have short legs, close woolly fur and long prehensile tails. They are nocturnal and omnivorous, and also fond of honey, which is why they are sometimes called honey bears.
9. Body dynamics

Kinetics is the science of the motion of bodies taking into account their mass and the forces acting upon them. The fundamental ideas go back to Newton's Laws of Motion. Branches of kinematics include Aerodynamics and Hydrodynamics, and Kinetics.
10. Seat of lawyers?

An ancient court of common law, the King's Bench was set up around 1200 to deal with a variety of kinds of pleas. It derived from the Curia Regis, the court that followed the king on his travels around the country.
In modern England it is the King's Bench Division of the High Court of Justice, presided over by the Lord Chief Justice of England. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, it is the Queen's Bench. Among the many kinds of cases it deals with are personal injury, negligence, breach of contract, libel, slander and changing of names by deed poll.
