You would do much better if you read my note about reading the THIRD choice. SOME of the questions are, indeed, iffy but not reading the third choice carefully was my definite downfall toward a decent score (12/20).

yeah, me too! Although the ones with total weights and lengths are always a guess, because who knows what the maximum weight is??

We are all trying very hard to discredit this quiz.... :lol:

That's because we all KNOW we should knock it out at 100%, especially after the first 5 or so "normal" questions ... :sagrin: I had to go look up the WWII attack (after the test) and was totally embarrassed with the "where did they bury the survivors" type question ('cause I missed it and smacked my head afterwards :oops:)

"Squids' bodies are made of chitin and cartilage" There I was, thinking they merely contained a relatively small quantity of the stuff....

"The eyes of the giant squid are the largest of any animal in the world" There go my measurements of Mesonychoteuthis, out the window.....
