About This Quiz

Predator and prey relationships have long existed on earth even before humans came to be on it. 

Mother Nature sure knows how to work it that way. She starts by building organism after organism, letting them nurture themselves and develop according to their own environmental needs. Of course, this also pertains to hunting for food, or looking for it.

There are different kinds of animals that eat different kinds of things. But one thing is certain in the animal kingdom: There will always be smaller creatures that will end up as food of bigger ones. This phenomenon is actually called the food chain. Predators exist at varying levels of this food chain. But that predator could also be the prey of another predator which is higher up on the chain. Well, such is life!

And in the evolution of the world, there have been some developments in ecological relationships. Some strange or interesting predator-prey relationships were produced over the years, that's why we can now clearly identify which animal hunts or eats which creature.

So, if you think you're good at identifying such creatures, why not give this quiz a try. Hop in!
