About This Quiz

Are you smarter than a zoologist? Take this quiz to find out.

If you love animals, you've probably spent a lifetime learning about them. Even if you grew up under a rock (like a snake!), you're bound to have picked up a tidbit or two about the animals we share the Earth with. From the number of eyes a butterfly has (monarch butterflies have 12,000!), to the lifespan of an alligator (as long as 100 years), to the surprising animal that can run faster than you (a hippopotamus), animals give us plenty of quiz fodder.

It's difficult to say what it is about animals that intrigues us the most. Is it their amazing antics, their raw beauty, or their sheer example of nature in action? Any way you look at them, animals are fascinating. Every animal has a set of attributes that makes it different from the rest, and we've compiled just a few of them here for you. So, whether you're enthralled by creatures of the land, sea or air, you'll find fun facts and impressive statistics to amaze you in this quiz. You might even learn something you didn't already know.
