    • E.

      Four

    E. Four
    Explanation
    Donkeys have eyes positioned on the sides of their head, allowing them to have a wide field of vision. This enables them to see all four of their feet at once.

    How long can a cockroach survive after you've cut it's head off?

    • A.

      Hours

    • B.

      Days

    • C.

      Weeks

    • D.

      Months

    • E.

      Other

    Correct Answer
    C. Weeks
    Explanation
    Cockroaches have an open circulatory system, which means they do not rely on their heads to pump blood. They have small openings called spiracles on their body segments that allow them to breathe. Therefore, even without a head, a cockroach can still breathe and survive for a few weeks. However, without a head, they are unable to eat or drink, so they eventually die due to dehydration or starvation.

  • 4. 

    Which is bigger, an Ostrich's brain, or it's own eye?

    • A.

      Brain

    • B.

      Eye

    • C.

      Both are the same size

    Correct Answer
    B. Eye
    Explanation
    The answer is "Eye" because an ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain. Ostriches have the largest eyes of any land animal, measuring about 2 inches in diameter. In contrast, an ostrich's brain is relatively small, weighing only a few grams. This is a unique characteristic of ostriches and is necessary for their survival in their natural habitat.

    How many times does a hedgehogs heart beat in a minute? (average)

    • A.

      25

    • B.

      80

    • C.

      250

    • D.

      300

    • E.

      Other

    Correct Answer
    D. 300
    Explanation
    Hedgehogs have a relatively high heart rate compared to other animals. The average heart rate for a hedgehog is around 300 beats per minute. This is due to their small size and fast metabolism, which requires a higher heart rate to pump oxygen and nutrients throughout their bodies efficiently.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    How many muscles are in a cat's ear? (one ear)

    • A.

      5

    • B.

      10

    • C.

      32

    • D.

      23

    • E.

      47

    Correct Answer
    C. 32
    Explanation
    Cats have 32 muscles in each ear. These muscles allow cats to move their ears independently, enabling them to accurately locate sounds and detect prey or potential threats. The large number of muscles in their ears gives cats exceptional hearing abilities and helps them to be highly alert and responsive to their environment.

  • 7. 

    What is the longest recorded flight of a chicken?

    • A.

      10 seconds

    • B.

      7 seconds

    • C.

      13 seconds

    • D.

      4 seconds

    • E.

      Chickens never fly

    Correct Answer
    C. 13 seconds
    Explanation
    Chickens are not known for their flying abilities, as they have short wings and heavy bodies. However, in rare cases, chickens can manage to fly for short distances. The longest recorded flight of a chicken is 13 seconds, which is longer than the other given options. This suggests that while chickens are not natural fliers, they can still achieve brief moments of flight under certain circumstances.

    About how long can a snail sleep?

    • A.

      Two months

    • B.

      One year

    • C.

      Three years

    • D.

      They don't sleep

    Correct Answer
    C. Three years
    Explanation
    Snails have the ability to enter a state of torpor, which is similar to hibernation. During this time, their metabolic rate decreases significantly, allowing them to conserve energy. This torpor state can last for several years, during which the snail remains inactive and does not require food or water. Therefore, the correct answer is "Three years."

    About how long can a mole dig a tunnel in one night?

    • A.

      90 meters

    • B.

      25 meters

    • C.

      150 meters

    • D.

      Other

    Correct Answer
    A. 90 meters
    Explanation
    A mole can dig a tunnel of approximately 90 meters in one night. Moles are known for their exceptional digging abilities, with strong front limbs and sharp claws. They can tunnel through soil at an impressive speed, creating intricate networks of underground passages. While the exact distance a mole can dig in one night may vary depending on factors such as soil type and mole species, 90 meters is a reasonable estimate based on their typical capabilities.

    How many noses does a slug have?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      5

    • D.

      2

    • E.

      4

    Correct Answer
    E. 4
    Explanation
    Slugs do not have noses in the traditional sense. They have sensory organs called tentacles, which they use to detect their environment. Slugs typically have two pairs of tentacles, with the upper pair being longer and used for sensing light and movement, while the lower pair is used for detecting chemicals in their surroundings. Therefore, the correct answer is 4, as slugs have four tentacles in total.
