Advance Animal Biology Trivia Quiz For You! - Quiz

Animal Biology is the study of the chemical and physical structure and behavior of animals with reference to their molecular and cellular systems, anatomy, and physiology. The concept of animal biology as a single coherent field of study started after the zoological sciences which emerged from natural history as far back as the biological works of Aristotle. Are you an animal biologist? Or just a lover of animals? Can you ace this quiz? Give it a try.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Who is the father of zoology?

    • A.

    • D.

      Glen

    C. Aristole
    Explanation
    Aristotle is considered the father of zoology because he made significant contributions to the field of biology, particularly in the study of animals. He classified and described a wide range of species, and his observations and writings laid the foundation for the scientific study of zoology. Aristotle's work on animals, including his detailed observations and categorizations, greatly influenced future scientists and shaped our understanding of the natural world.

    How many stomach compartments does a ruminant animal have?

    • A.

      4

    • B.

      1

    • C.

      2

    • D.

      5

    Correct Answer
    A. 4
    Explanation
    Ruminant animals have a four-compartment stomach, including the rumen, reticulum, omasum, and abomasum. These compartments work together to facilitate the digestion of plant material. The rumen and reticulum are responsible for the initial breakdown of food through microbial fermentation, while the omasum helps in water absorption and further breakdown of food particles. Finally, the abomasum acts as a true stomach, secreting digestive enzymes to break down proteins and other nutrients. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.

Sponges are filter feeders, meaning they extract nutrients from the water by filtering it through their porous bodies. They are commonly found in coral reefs, rocky shores, and other coastal areas. Sponges play an important role in marine ecosystems as they provide habitat and food for many other organisms.

It represents the highest level of classification and groups organisms based on their fundamental characteristics and overall similarities. The Kingdom category encompasses a wide range of organisms and serves as the starting point for further classification into more specific categories such as phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species.

This naming system, known as binomial nomenclature, allows scientists to classify and identify organisms based on their evolutionary relationships and characteristics.
