B) Major P.J Pretorius

He's also very famous for being almighty ticked off at the Germans for all the trouble they gave him in his pre-war hunting years, confiscating his stuff, throwing him in jail etc., in essence because they wanted his farm. So, when he got a chance at revenge he did it in spades during WWII. Using his knowledge of the areas he scouted the river (can't remember the details) where the German cruiser(?) Koningsberg was hiding. This ship was a thorn in the flesh of the Allied fleets, attacking and destroying supply convoys. He scouted the area, even going on board :shock: disguised as a local, and then led the Allied forces to the Konigsberg to destroy it. They used some or other reasonably flat-bottomed boats to approach close and unseen - can't remember what they were called, before destroying the Koningsberg where she was hiding.

:clap: The answer was B) Major P.J. Pretorius. We all know you can't take citrus fruit into Addo, pre-national park status the region was home to many citrus plantations and the ellies in the area loved raiding them. Cue the Major and his riffle. But then the plantation owners had a change of heart and came up with the idea of there being a protected area. And so in 1931 Addo Elephant National Park was born.

Bishop and SC :clap:

Bisop you were first so your IT!

Multiple choice... :hmz: Easier to set a paper where the intention is sometimes to catch out, than here on the quizzes... :wall:

Let's see...

Aardvark is an interesting animal seldom seen. (I’ve been lucky enough to see some over the years out walking.) When they are attacked, they do the following:

(The answer can be one of the following, or a combination - not saying how many.)

a) Dig fast to get into the ground and away.
b) Run away in a zigzag fashion to elude enemies.
c) Stand their ground and strike with their claws, tail and shoulders, sometimes flipping onto their backs to lash with all fours.
d) Don’t worry, because their thick skin protects them.
e) All of the above.
f) None of the above.
