Team StoryWeavers|October 30, 2022, 10:04 IST| 181

Welcome to Sunday Challenge, the weekly quiz. In this edition, we take a walk on the wild side as we explore five questions on the wildlife of India. How well do you know the fauna of our country? Take this quiz and find out! 

Leave your answers in the comments section below. Answers will be revealed on subsequent Sundays. Ready? Here are your questions:

Question 1

One of just five fresh water-dwelling species of its kind, identify this National Aquatic Animal of India.

Question 2

This critically endangered species is one of the longest among living crocodiles. It gets its name for its distinctive snout that resembles a particular earthenware pot used in the Indian subcontinent. Identify this animal that can be found in sparse numbers in the waters of the Ganga and its tributaries.

Question 3

Endemic to the Nilgiri hills, this ungulate is called “araiaadu” in Tamil, which loosely translates to “precipice goat”. How do we better know this endangered species? (Hint: Its name sounds like a famous desert in Asia).

Question 4

The character of Master Shifu from the animated film series Kung Fu Panda is an endangered mammal that is found in the Himalayas. Although its name suggests that it is a close relative of the more famous black and white bamboo-eating protagonist of the series, it is more closely related to raccoons, weasels and skunks. What animal is Master Shifu?

Question 5

The Indian Cobra is also known by another name that is evocative of a commonly used object for corrective vision. It gets this alternative name from the distinct marks visible when it spreads its hood. What is this name?
