What kind of stork is this? Why, a spoonbill of course! (Roseate spoonbill Ajaia Ajaja) (Title Photo)

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 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.

    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!
