About This Quiz

The world is full of cringe-worthy wild critters that most of us know very little about. This quiz will change that, at least for you. No need to purchase outrageously priced plane tickets and hotel stays in far-off, extreme destinations where the most elusive wild ones are purported to dwell. Then again, you could just download a coupon and splurge on a nominal admission fee at your local zoo, where you're more likely to find the most bizarre, deadliest, venomous, smelliest ... 

Ah, yes, the smells of the local zoo. When the words "wild" and "zoo" come to mind, the idea of a three-hour nose-clutching stench-fest is a none-too-distant dissuader. On second thought, avoid the torturous strains of amalgamated wild animal funk that await at the local creature camp. Spare your olfactory organs by gaining first-rate creature lowdown with this quiz, instead. Brush up on the latest mating practices, camouflage techniques and burrowing habits that the wild animals are into these days. Learn which beloved beasts finally made it to the top-10 critically endangered list in recent years. For some reasons, a few you will discover herein, there are always one or more new brutes that make the list every year. Find out, breathe in, click on and enjoy this digital safari!
