BTW this is an Open Quiz (OQ). Anyone can post a new question as soon as the previous one has been concluded. The opportunity to ask a question is not automatically transferred to the person with the correct answer (RV), nor stays with the quiz starter (QM).

Please read the Quiz rules at the top of the Quizzes Forum if you are unsure. :wink:

1. What is the approximate weight of a warthog ?

It is approximately equal to the weight of his brothers brother, or his mothers piglet.


2. Incisors can grow up to ....

... where they belong.

3. What is different between a male and female's facial features?

The male is much prettier, after all he has two more warts than the female, giving extra personality.

Theodore Roosevelt once said that warthogs are......... charming little chaps! (or was it hideous beasts?)

Imberbe, Imberbe :roll: What an excellent answer :tongue:

Emily86 - 50 kg for the female (slim and trim) :wink: and 150 for the male (potbellied methinks :twisted: )

Correct answers: (Imberbe take note)
1. What is the approximate weight of a warthog ?

Mass: 68-72 kg

2. Incisors can grow up to ... cm long?

60 cm

3. What is different between a male and female's facial features?

Imberbe - not prettier, but yes the male has two pairs of warts

Theodore Roosevelt once said that warthogs are......... "hideous beasts, with strange protuberances on their cheeks"

I suppose Churchill would have said "Charming little chaps"

Nice quiz, IB. :clap:

Rosemary:

1) Not sure exactly what you're looking for here, but lion kills would most likely happen near prey. :twisted: Okay, seriously, most likely near waterholes as they are patient hunters and wait for prey to come to drink.

2) Lions do sometimes hide themselves under bushes and trees if it's raining hard, but I have often seen them lying in the rain or walking around when it is wet. So, no.

3) Absolutely, lions can swim. They are not always fond of doing so, but they are indeed good swimmers.
