You are all correct. On a good day he reached about 500 Million people all over the world. What a loss he is to conservation..

I watched a few of his documentaries this weekend on animal planet, all about his life and work, and I was very impressed by the man. Africa would be lucky to have someone so passionate about his continent.

Next question....
Vampire bats do each others favours in times of need by regurgitating blood for one another. These favours are remembered by the recipient, and will next time return the favour. Also if one bat rejects another, the "rejectee" will remember that, and will not do the "rejector" a favour next time......

True to the sharing.
Vapire bats need blood at least once every few days to survive. If they can't get blood, they'll approach another vampire bat whilst roosting, asking for a blood 'transfusion'. The blood is exchanged mouth-to-mouth in a motion that looks very much like kissing.

True.

There are permanently resident and some almost permanently nomadic populations of wildebeest, and all gradations in between. The small, resident populations may consist of about eight cows with calves, while large migratory populations may number in the thousands. It is not known why some populations in the same region and under the same conditions are resident and some are nomadic.

True.

It is not the "great organised exodus" as it is sometimes depicted om T.V. It is rather a haphazard movement following the grazing and the whim of many thousands of individuals, which in the end creates a migration. As always some individuals do not subscribe to the norm, and stay behind.

:? W@H, you are banned from this quiz :D

To the rest of you, sorry I neglected my quiz for a while. It's been a tough week....

Everybody (W@H excluded), you guessed correct, and Imberbe as well as restio explained exactly why.

Not sure on this one, but would hazard to guess this is FALSE.

Reason: Most fawns actually has virtually no smell. The reason for this is that it helps them to avoid detection by predators.

I agree with Imberbe: false. To protect against predators, their scent glands only start working when they are older.
