1. 7 out of 10. And I got the toad correct. ? Great quiz! ?

• Not from me you haven’t! It is highly likely that I am not the first person to think that this would be a good idea, and I definitely did not pinch any questions from a quiz already on Virily – any similarity is therefore pure coincidence.

• Haha of course, I wasn’t accusing you of such a thing! ðŸ™‚

I think I would have done much worse on this had I not come across something similar before though, so lucky for me!

2. You got 6 out of 10 right! Something has been left in my head since the school years. It was a long time ago

3. You got 8 out of 10 right!

Great

4. 5 out of 10, and some of those were very tricky!
