Challenge accepted..........this one took a bit to find......

QUOTE: As with the Giant Panda Bear, the Australian Koala Bear has a very specialized diet. Instead of bamboo shoots, the Koala Bear only eats the leaves and bark from a very few species of Australian Eucalyptus Trees. Both David and myself are fortunate to have had the opportunity to interact with Koala Bears in the past. They are truly remarkable animals. One neat fact about the Koala that most people may not know; is that they actually smell like highly concentrated Eucalyptus oil. This is obviously due to their exclusive consumption of Eucalyptus leaves in their diet. This extreme concentration of Eucalyptus would be toxic to most animals, but nature always finds a way to adapt & overcome. This adapting to survive in ones environment can also be seen in the digestive tract of the Koala Bears gut. Koalas have a very long caecum, which helps the animal digest the high fiber, bulky eucalyptus leaves. These leaves would otherwise be both impossible to digest much less actually absorb any nutritional value, without this extra large caecum. UNQUOTE.





That is a very interesting trivia fact. Good lead.....good read.


The answer to this next trivia question can be found within the pages of the TigerHomes site...........whosoever shall answer picks next. Tag! You're it! Simply fill in the blanks and you WIN Twisted Evil Which NERD will it be?

One of the primary reasons the ______________was given its name is due to the sound of one of its many vocalizations. This particular vocalization sounds similar to human child crying in the woods, so the native people coinhabiting with them gave the animals the common name of ________________.

Haha..........luv that 'should you decide to accept it' part. Blast from the past. Laughing Cool

One of the primary reasons the orca was given its name is due to the sound of one of its many vocalizations. This particular vocalization sounds similar to human child crying in the woods, so the native people coinhabiting with them gave the animals the common name of killer whale.

Just a guess. Still searching.

OK TF99 you get 2 more guesses (and nerd points for effort) Very Happy Will another hint help? Let's see...........how about: it is a species that is currently housed at TigerHomes Sanctuary but not on cams yet. The question is copied directly from one of the animal pages here on the site (with the identity deleted out of course!) Ace got the names right (oh yeah!) and they are listed on the same page the ?? came from. OK, that's 2 hints..........but what the heck?

You get to pay us back, don't forget!, by putting in your own question for us to solve. Just don't be too hard on us, OK? Laughing Laughing

Scratch that I found it!
One of the primary reasons the Bush Baby was given its name is due to the sound of one of its many vocalizations. This particular vocalization sounds similar to human child crying in the woods, so the native people coinhabiting with them gave the animals the common name of BushBaby.
