Tiki jumps in to his quizTiki's interactive animal quiz


Woo! Surprise!How much do you know about animals?

In my 20-question quiz, you score as you go along. Choose your answer and then click the button below to score. If you're right, a smiley clown face appears. But this face looks sad if you're wrong. Also when you click the button, a little window pops up and tells you more about the correct answer. Use your mouse to drag this window to wherever you want it to appear. When you reach the end, you'll find your final score. Good luck!

TIP In my quiz, radio buttons (round checkboxes) mean there's only one right answer to the question. But square checkboxes mean that there is more than one possible answer. Sometimes there are several. You have to get them all right to score with one point for each answer.
