We learn about animals from the earliest parts of childhood when our elders teach us that the cat says “meow” and dogs say “ruff-ruff.” As we grow, our understanding of animals grows too! We learn about different personalities and how dogs are our best friends. Then we begin to understand the difference between domesticated animals and an animal’s life in the wild.  

Animals are a vital part of life and exist all around us. There are endless opportunities to learn more about animals—from the worms that live in the soil to lions roaming the plains. Birds fly past us in the morning, singing their songs, and dogs bark at each other from yard to yard in our neighborhoods. We’re surrounded by animals all the time.

How much have you learned about our two-legged, four-legged, and thousand-legged friends? Let your skills roam free with our Animal trivia questions and answers.
