An Ultimate Trivia Challenge On Animal Biology! - Quiz

Animals have proven to be inevitably a part of the biosphere with dazing features, contribution, and interactions in their various ecosystems. The study of the structure, embryology, evolution, classification, habits, and distribution of all animals, both living and extinct is the definition of animal biology. Which began in the pre-Darwin era with the works of Galen and Aristotle, who is known as the father of animal biology, which formed the basis of what animal biology is today. Why not give this quiz a try for the love of animal sake?

    Explanation
    An anthropod is a type of invertebrate animal that has a segmented body, jointed appendages, and an exoskeleton. Spiders fit this description as they have a segmented body, eight jointed legs, and an exoskeleton. Turkeys, snails, and turtles do not have these characteristics, so they are not anthropods.

    What was given for "phylum" in plant classification?

    • A.

      Class

    • B.

      Genus

    • C.

      Division

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Division
    Explanation
    In plant classification, the term "phylum" is not used. Instead, the correct term used is "division." The division is a taxonomic rank that groups plants based on their characteristics and evolutionary relationships. It is a higher rank than class and genus. Therefore, the correct answer is "Division."

    What are animals with the same type of teeth?

    • A.

      Monodent

    • B.

      Heterodent

    • C.

      Homodent

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Homodent
    Explanation
    Homodent refers to animals that have teeth of the same type. This means that all the teeth in their mouth are similar in shape and function. Animals with homodent teeth include herbivores like cows and horses, as well as carnivores like dogs and cats. Having homodent teeth allows these animals to efficiently perform their specific feeding behaviors, whether it is grazing on plants or tearing apart meat.

    Which type of fish give birth to young ones alive?

    • A.

      Sharks

    • B.

      Starfishes

    • C.

      Horsefish

    • D.

      Jellyfish

    Correct Answer
    A. Sharks
    Explanation
    Sharks give birth to young ones alive. Unlike most fish that lay eggs, sharks are viviparous, meaning they give birth to live offspring. This is advantageous for the survival of the shark pups as they are already developed and have a higher chance of survival compared to eggs. Sharks have internal fertilization, where the male shark transfers sperm into the female's body, and the embryos develop inside the female until they are ready to be born.

    Why are sponges the most primitive of all animal groups?

    • A.

      They have long life span

    • B.

      They are unicellular

    • C.

      They live in water and are sessile

    • D.

      They reproduce daily

    Correct Answer
    C. They live in water and are sessile
    Explanation
    Sponges are considered the most primitive of all animal groups because they live in water and are sessile. This means that they are stationary and attached to a surface, unable to move freely. This characteristic is a primitive trait found in early animal forms, as more advanced animals have developed the ability to move and adapt to different environments. Living in water and being sessile allows sponges to filter feed and obtain nutrients from the surrounding water, a simple and basic method of obtaining food.

    What type of animal is warm blooded and is nourished by their mothers milk?

    • A.

      Pisces

    • B.

      Reptiles

    • C.

      Mammals

    • D.

      Amphibians

    Correct Answer
    C. Mammals
    Explanation
    Mammals are warm-blooded animals that have the unique characteristic of being nourished by their mother's milk. This distinguishes them from other types of animals such as fish (Pisces), reptiles, and amphibians. Mammals have mammary glands that produce milk, which is rich in nutrients and essential for the growth and development of their offspring. This adaptation allows mammals to provide their young with a consistent and specialized source of nutrition, ensuring their survival and well-being.
