True........and by a further 15% dangerously close to the brink.

Thanks for all the answers, mites. Yes, Heksie, THAT high; it is estimated that, of all the birds in the world, about 1200 species are under threat of extinction due to the interference of some kind from humans. Over to you, Phokojwe. :thumbs_up:

True or False?

Bushbabies have a 'vocabulary' which includes at least 25 different sounds.

It is said that bushbabies have at least 18 different calls, so this question is more one of semantics than not. Do they have 25 calls (which fits into the "at least 18" scenario), or is "at least 18" not the same as "at least 25"? :hmz: :hmz: Since 18 and 25 are significantly different, I'm going with False. :wink:

Thanks onewithnature :wink:

I would say True

Bushbabies have 10 or 11 basic sounds, that when combined can produce some 25 recognizable different calls. Advertising” calls are done by a type of bark. Alarm calls are more varied and may start off with a hoarse grunt grading into a sneezing noise, but the more excited they become the more the pitch and intensity. :whistle:

Phokojwe, you're the incumbent quizmaster. Perhaps you should ask another Q?
