OK, we know all the boffins ... keep out! :naughty: (Present company is just an ignorant Mod.) Newbies ... I will "fire you" once you become too advanced for this quiz! :wink:

This quiz is aimed at the regular guys and galls, who do not have an encyclopaedia hidden in their heads and do not know how to Google! Questions should be every day questions a tourist in one of our parks will ask. Answers ought to be correct ... but short and simple.

#############

What is a rhinos horn made of?

Well done Normana. You were first. Cheetah's also have tear marks on their faces.

You're IT.

It is white (or white'ish) as it contains lots of calcium which is due to the fact that hyenas are able to digest bones as well. :hmz:
