Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    When you get to your location and take your animal out of the cooler, you should leave the door of the cooler open to let the ambient temperature level out.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Leaving the door of the cooler open when you get to your location and take your animal out is important to let the ambient temperature level out. This allows the animal to adjust gradually to the new temperature, preventing sudden temperature changes that could be harmful or stressful for the animal. By leaving the door open, the cooler's interior temperature will gradually match the surrounding temperature, ensuring the animal's comfort and well-being.

    Correct Answer
    C. 0, you should take 3 yellow towels.

    Let the public touch the Blue Death Feigning Beetle unless...

    • A.

      Its feigning death

    • B.

      Its crawling on your hand

    • C.

      You have more then one at once

    Correct Answer
    A. Its feigning death
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Its feigning death." This means that the Blue Death Feigning Beetle will only allow the public to touch it if it is pretending to be dead. This behavior is a defense mechanism that the beetle uses to protect itself from potential threats. If the beetle is crawling on your hand or if there is more than one beetle at once, it will not allow the public to touch it.

  • 4. 

    The temperature outside is 60 degrees but your animal's temperature minimum is 70 degrees. The temperature inside the holding building is 75 degrees. How much time do you have to get your animal from the holding location to the encounter location?

    • A.

      5 minutes

    • B.

      10 minutes

    • C.

      Unlimited Time

    • D.

      You can't take the animal out of the holding area without a double cooler.

    Correct Answer
    A. 5 minutes
    Explanation
    Given that the animal's minimum temperature is 70 degrees and the temperature inside the holding building is 75 degrees, it means that the animal can tolerate being in the holding building for a short period of time. However, since the temperature outside is only 60 degrees, which is lower than the animal's minimum temperature, it is important to quickly transfer the animal to the encounter location within a short time frame. Therefore, the correct answer is 5 minutes, as any longer delay may cause the animal's temperature to drop below its minimum requirement.

This type of discharge is commonly associated with bacterial or viral conjunctivitis. To ensure Boots receives proper care and treatment, it is important to notify the Africa keepers so they can assess his condition and take necessary actions. Writing an incident report will also document the occurrence and provide a record for future reference. Additionally, it is advisable not to use Boots until his condition improves to prevent spreading any potential infection to other animals.

Hide boxes provide a safe and secure hiding place for the tortoises, allowing them to feel protected and reduce stress. This is important as tortoises are naturally shy and require hiding spots to retreat to when feeling threatened or overwhelmed. The hide boxes will help create a suitable environment for the tortoises to feel comfortable and thrive in their new surroundings.
