Dear Readers, great results again this week, with Anne getting 9 out of 10 and Fran and Bobby Freelove still invincible with 10 out of 10 – well done everyone! I suspect that tomorrow’s quiz will have a seasonal theme, so be prepared….
C) A jaguar (much stockier than a leopard plus the fur pattern is lots of circles with dots in the middle
A) A sun bear (the world’s smallest bear and a tremendous climber)
D) An Indian rhinoceros
A) A king penguin (very similar to an emperor penguin for sure, but slimmer and the colours on the head are slightly different).
C) A Himalayan monal – a rather beautiful member of the pheasant family
A) A bearded vulture (lammergeier) – there was one of these in the UK for weeks this summer, having flown over from the Alps.
D) An Ethiopian red wolf – a very endangered canid.
A) A mouse lemur (actually a pygmy mouse lemur) from Madagascar.
C) A hellbender – an American giant salamander. It can grow to about 30 inches long, is critically endangered and can weigh up to 5lbs. However, this chap is tiny compared to the Chinese Giant Salamander, who can grow to almost 6 feet long and weighs in at 66 lbs. Blimey.

It was a fun quiz – thank you.
Must admit to totally falling in love with the Hellbender 🙂
My apologies, I meant to do the quiz ‘mid-week’ and I now discover it’s Friday already!! (Oh the joys of retirement!) I’d never have got 9 or 10 anyway, so congrats to Anne and Fran & Bobby. Awesome!
