It was killed and someone wrote it down. There were possibly othersbut nobody saw any and left a record, that's why "last known".

Eurasian wolves were hunted (which was and is probably very well documented) for a long time and driven out of parts of Europe. They're making a comeback with steadily increasing numbers. But I don't think that they'll swim to GB. :D

Imagine that on the ferry between Great Britain and mainland Europe, a large pack of wolves doggy paddling across the Channel. Probably trying to get at all of those British sheep.

Surprised so many people got the ape one wrong - it’s only gibbons, orangutans, (Asia) chimps, bonobos and gorillas (Africa), all of which I thought were commonly known not to live in SA?

All the primates in SA are small New World Monkeys like marmosets, tamarins, howler monkeys, squirrel monkeys, spider monkeys, capuchins etc.

The "apes" word confused me because I couldn't tell if it was referring to the great apes or primates in general. I know the difference between them but some people use those words interchangeably

In the explanation for #13 it should be "have swum" - past participle rather than past simple.

Interesting quiz 👍🏻

In all fairness, I have always been mistakenly "corrected" when I say "have swum". But I "corrected" them, sir. And when my wife tried to prevent me from doing my duty, I "corrected" her.

I hate it when I second-guess myself on the most-gotten answer. "Lizards in Europe? That must be some kind of trick question where you would think the answer is obviously yes, so it's probably no!" Sigh.
