OK! STOP HORSING AROUND NOW! :naughty:

An elephants eye is in fact about the same size as that of the human eye!!! Rather small for such a huge animal. It has limited view towards the side and back, but good eyesight to the front.

Q 9:

The elephants tusks are enlarged incisors. How many pairs of tusks do an elephant have in its lifetime?
:wink:

Gwen. Now I will be able to i.d. you when I meet you in a national park. You should look something like this: :big_eyes:

:twisted:

Oh yes, can you tell me why your answer is wrong? :wink:

Q9.
Elephants are born with milk tusks (normally not visible) which they lose at about a year. These are replaced by the permanent tusks and they become visible from about two years old. These tusks will grow throughout their lifetime and are not replaced.

Quote:

Don't fully agree on this.... The eye placement is as such that there is good view to the sides and down the side of the body. Almost right to the back. (Ever noticed how the head is swayed when an elle walks away from you to keep you in sight?) They do not have to turn the head...

Yes, Gwen got it (the second time that is) and Pilane explained why.

Q 10

This might be difficult ... :roll:

The warning whistle of which small mammal, who lives in trees, is often mistaken for the call of a bird?
:wink:

Well, in fact I had a tree squirrel in mind when asking the question ... but the lesser bushbaby would qualify just as well!

:clap:

Next Q tomorrow!
