About This Quiz

Many of us think that it's virtually impossible to get lost in the woods. Maybe it's because we never leave the city, or perhaps we think we know too much. But you can never have too much knowledge when you're facing life and death. And because we don't like taking chances where life is concerned, we're going to make sure that you know what you should and should not eat lest you get lost in the woods. 

So, we're going to show you a bunch of trees, plants, and shrubs that are found in most forests. It's your job to identify them and tell us whether they'd nourish you, or whether you should send your final goodbyes over the mountain via smoke signals. Now, these plants may look harmless, but don't let that fool you - be very watchful! Plus, we've given you a bunch of hints that'll help you decide what you should put in your mouth and what you shouldn't even touch, far less ingest.

So, don't be a Bear Grylls, because we're not really sure you can handle it. Instead, try to be a younger brother or sister of his and start your training by telling us whether these plants are fatal or not!
