The monthly Quiz!

Postby saracen » 2006-04-30 19:32

It's time for a new Quiz! I hope you will all enjoy this one as much as last months, and I will have loads of entries!

We are back to question and answers this month, but never fear, the picture round will be back.....!

All you have to do is send me your answers to these 8 questions, by Personal Message, or E-mail, by May 30th, winner to be announces on the 31st!

There are 5 fishy questions, and the final 3 are natural history types, because I really like the animals in question....

Good luck, and here we go!

1) What colour is a Gangetic dolphin?

2) What whale has the world's heaviest brain at 20lbs, four times the weight of the average human brain?

3) Which small species Tuna is widespread in tropical seas and supermarket's less-expensive tins?

4) What is the collective name for a group of sea horses?

5) What is the humuhumunukunukuapuaa, one of the oficial symbols of Hawaii: a toad, a fish, a bird or a flower?

6) What is the gestation period of a rabbit?

7) What common name is attached to the world's largest species of monitor lizard?

8) How many toes has a guinea pig on each of it's back feet?

Good luck!

:blink: Phew! Some tough questions there, I've just sent in some random guesses because I haven't got time for research.. and good luck everyone... what do I win if I guess them all right?

Apparently Guinea pigs are called 'Sea Pigs' in a lot of countries because sailors used to keep them on board old sailing ships to supply fresh meat at sea. In Peru they are called Cavies and are very popular food, in the forest villages virtually every house has a run for them under the floor, I thought they would all be boring brown coloured ones, but they keep all kinds like our pet ones in this country, it's just to them they are both pet and dinner, they don't see any problem with eating their kid's pets. I once had to choose some to eat out of a pen full of little tufty ginger ones that looked exactly like those in a pet shop :o ... they are very tasty by the way, a lot like pork, but with more bones, hence 'pig' I guess. Just thought I'd share that with you.

humuhumunukunukuapuaa sounds like something my seven month old baby would say...

Sorry Saracen 5 fishy questions?... unless maybe some are 'trick' questions and you are trying to catch us out?! Aha it's a hint maybe...

I use the term "fishy" loosly.....as in, they live in water! :lol:

Thank you for all your entries! One question in particular seems to be giving you all some difficulty..... I will have to check my answer to that one and see if my source was correct.....
