Half a TICK! I was never going to think of that. Nice to see some creepy crawlies on here.

I guess I learned a new phrase today, as I've never heard "fit as a flea" before. I've heard "healthy as a horse," (maybe an inclusion for #2, or an addition here?) but nothing about a flea!

Also, wonder if "shrew" could also be accepted for "Bad-tempered"? I've certainly heard the term "shrew-ish" before.

Thanks for having a go. Horses and shrews don't really fit the definition of a 'creepy crawlie' for this quiz but maybe for another one as you suggest.
