What’s the Quiz About?

Criteria Animal Species tests your knowledge about animals. There are 12 animals to choose from, with a range from walrus to hummingbird. As with all criteria quizzes, this is a minefield. At first, you’re given a list of 12 characteristics (1 for each species), and you have to click the one animal that has all those characteristics. After you click the first one, the bottom characteristic disappears. Now you have 11 characteristics and 11 animals to choose from. And so on and so forth. For this quiz, it’s very important to read all of the characteristics before beginning. With 8 minutes to complete the quiz, you have more than enough time to think through your options. Additionally, it’s not a forced order quiz, so if you’re not sure about the current question, you can skip ahead to one you do know.
