From the tiniest weenie little worm to the gigantic whales that fly through the water like big flabby planes - animals are simply amazing! They come in all shapes and sizes and have helped create the world all around us today! We wouldn’t be here, reading this quiz if it wasn’t for the bees that make our food grow, or the iddy biddy plankton that keep the oceans alive! But how well do you know the animals of the world? Let’s find out!


Crabs wee from their faces


Herrings fart to stay together in their big shoals


Tardigrades can survive in space


50 million years ago, Whales used to live on land…


Humans are the only animals that use tools


Honey bees have hairs growing out of their eyes


Birds are descended from dinosaurs


Woodlice have gills, like crabs and fish


The phantom crane fly has inflatable feet


Some crabs live inside the bums of sea urchins!

Oh dear! It looks like it’s maybe time to check out some videos or books to brush up on your animal knowledge! But don’t worry, even David Attenborough wasn’t an expert right from the start! It took time and practice to get him to where he is today, and the same is true for everyone, so keep at it!

Alright! Now we’re getting somewhere! When it comes to looking at a bird, you clearly know its beak from its bum - and that’s something worth being proud of! That doesn’t mean that there isn’t some room to improve! After all, in science, we’re always learning new things, so there is alway another answer, just beyond! So why not have another try and see if you can get even more right?!

Wow! You’ve really stepped up to the science podium of life and shown that you know your stuff! Well done! What an absolute result! You got almost every single one of these answers right, well done! It looks like you've got a future in the world of science ahead of you if you keep this up - why not have a go at some of the other animal and science quizzes we’ve got on the site and see if you can beat them too?
