At first I thought Hippocampine was camel, but Valerie's right, isn't she? And why are penguins black and white? Because if they were grey and concretey they'd be paving slabs.

Cars, though:

1. Polo
2. Avenger
3. Anglia
4. Focus
5. Capri
6. Allegro...

...ah, it was going so well.

I'm never any good at these but I always have fun trying, anyway.

Today I think hippocampus is seahorse, not just horse. Also I'm pretty sure my cat only has 18 claws.

I haven't googled yet.

Valerie, as ever your efforts have an effortless valiance. Sadly this time, also very few correct answers. However, you have tied with the highest score on the night. You scored 4 out of a possible 12.

This leads me to believe that a round I thought would be quite easy actually turned out to be fiendishly difficult!

Hmmm

Sarah.
Put the fairies down very carefully. Calmly now. STEP AWAY FROM THE FAIRIES with your hands up....



I hate fairies anyway.

Without Google, I am lame. As I've proven here many times before. But here goes...

1) How many stomachs does a cow have? Six. Wait, maybe only four. Damn, not sure. I'll go with four because six sounds insane..
2) Where on a horse do you find its poll? Neck.
3) What is the only bird that is capable of seeing the colour blue? I don't know, will guess owls.
4) The following adjectives refer to which animals?
a) Vulpine Wolf. b) Hippocampine Horse. c) Chelonian Uh... Crab?.
5) How many claws does a house cat have? 20.
6) What is the name for a group of goldfish? A troubling, a dole or a bloat? I like this one. I have no idea, but I'll say a dole..
7) How many legs does a lobster have? Two?.
8) Which insects account for most human deaths? Mosquitoes.
9) Who recorded an early description of a reindeer in the 1st Century BC? Gurr... I give up.
10) Why are penguins black and white? So they'll be less visible from below to underwater attackers (white against the water surface) and less visible from above to I guess birds like sea eagles, while swimming.

I'm worn out and will try the cars later!
