About This Quiz

Apex predators are a phenomenon of the animal kingdom where the food chain stops. The chain starts at the plant level, where plants eat one another (in the form of mulch or soil), and are in turn eaten by grazers, insects and small animals like rodents. These animals are often hunted by larger creatures like certain types of birds or midsize hunters. In turn, these more ferocious animals are subject to predation by the apex predator; that is, the one who is so big and bad that nobody would even try to eat her.

Apex predators include bears, wolves, most big cats, a couple of types of whale and various raptors. They're usually very big, though not always - the orca is an apex predator and is far from being the biggest thing in the sea. The key about them is that nobody hunts them. If they are killed violently, sometimes it's by prey banding together, such as in the famous "Battle at Kruger" where a herd of buffalo fight off lions AND crocodiles to save a calf. Other times it's by rival apex predators, either from their own species or another.

The ultimate apex predator is the human, but even us humans have a little animal in us. Let's find yours!
