About This Quiz

When we were young, we were taught all about animals, their babies and sometimes, their habits. Although only a select few such as chickens, dogs, cows and cats were mentioned, we're now old enough to know about a wider range such as antelopes, raccoons and tapirs. Now, we don't expect you to know how long it takes for these animals to have their eggs hatched or how long their gestation periods are, but we do expect you to know the sounds they make. 

Some of these animals trumpet, bray, twitter and caw. Others bugle, pipe, gobble and even scream. Your job is to match the animals we're going to show you to the sounds they make. So does a whale sing or scream? Do deer bellow or bark? And does a goose hiss or pipe? You tell us! 

Don't fret though. We do have some hints available for you if you think you're stuck on a particular question or two. So if you think you've studied animals enough to correctly match the sounds they make with the actual creature, take this quiz? Let's find out if you'll be able to go assist your local vet or if you should watch more Animal Planet!
