Hmm, I'm usually OK on geography quizzes, but for this one I got zero. Better do some homework then try it again later...

People asked for harder quizzes after the 7 continents quiz hit the front page. :)

And about 50 complaints on my Seven Continents Map Quiz.

No no, I just whined that 7 Continents was too easy (or, to be exact, I said it only deserved 1 point for getting it all correct). Someone took a giant leap of logic and said that meant I want killer quizzes!... OK, try this horrifically hard one then, though maybe Americanos will find that all-American one yawningly easy.

Nope, I struggled! (I live on the other side of the country; maybe Russians, Alaskans, or Canucks will ace it?)

Everyone who takes this quiz: If you zoom on the countries of the world map, you can see these islands fairly clearly a little west of Ecuador. Observe them and enjoy!

I'm from Ecuador and I have been to the Galapagos several times and only got 7/14, for people that haven't been there must be imposible to know more than maybe 1 or 2.

Would it be possible to accept the old names, too, like Chatham for San Cristobal or Hood for Espanola?

"Can you name the largest islands that are part of the Galapagos archipelago?" No, as a matter of fact, I cannot even name one...

What about Darwin Island? Smallest island in the archipelago: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darwin_Island

And Wolf Island: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf_Island

I think Darwin is the furthest out, but there are several smaller than it around the archipelago. Darwin's about 3500 feet across, but Isla Sin Nombre, just west of Isla Santa Cruz, is only ~1000 feet across. Guy Fawkes Island and it's neighbor Isla Guy Fawkes are also significantly smaller. There are many even smaller unnamed islands. The smallest named Island I've been able to find in my oh-so-exhaustive search is Isla Onslow, at about 60 feet across.

I guessed Santa Maria and got Floreana. Presumably there's some historical reason for that

Shouldn't this quiz have an Ecuador tag since the islands are Ecuadorian?
