About This Quiz

Everyone loves animals (well, everyone you'd want to spend the holidays with does, anyway!). Even so, other than a professional veterinarian, you don't have to know too much about them to get by - but if you're curious enough about our furry and feathered friends, you must have picked up a variety of useful nuggets about their habits and traits.

There's a lot of disinformation about animals and in today's urban and suburban environments, we can feel very cut off. That's why it's important to remember that the animal kingdom is full of diverse creatures, some living wildly different lives than us, and others acting startlingly similar to their human cousins. Either way, if we study them, we might learn from them - or simply enjoy getting to know our roommates on planet Earth.

What happened to the peppered moth in Victorian England? How do vultures warm their feet? What's special about the family and romantic lives of penguins, seahorses, or prairie voles? What do you think would happen if you were to tickle a turtle or pose a challenging puzzle to a Caledonian crow? Are any animals ever democratic in their behavior?  If you think you know the answer to these, then this is the quiz for you!
