About This Quiz

Our Earth that we live on is a strange place, indeed.

It's not only filled with strange animals but humans as well!

It is a place of wonder, filled with daily miracles that are simply called life. And it is filled with fascinating facts, as well.

For instance, did you know that the only planet not named after a god is our Earth? Did you know that most South Africans can speak two languages (and take it totally for granted). What about the fact that "hello" wasn't a greeting used until the telephone came along. And who introduced it? Thomas Edison. Although, the inventor of the telephone wanted the greeting to be "Ahoy!" Let's all just agree that "Ahoy" is infinitely cooler!

Or did you know that elephants are indeed scared of mice (as proved by the Mythbusters) or that a cockroach can live without its head for a week, eventually dying of this because it cannot drink?

Zany facts, right. And you will find many more in our quiz. Except you have to answer them. Do you think you can do it? Some are extremely difficult, so a score of more than 11 will be simply incredible.

So what you waiting for? Jump right in and show us what you are made of! You got this!

Good luck, and enjoy it!
