I enjoy all these country quizzes. They are very educational. Here I got 17. Not happy with that. I`ve been to Ecuador. But another great country quiz.

I've never been to Ecuador and I got 16. Just enough for the badge so I'm pretty happy with it.

Really good quiz - I'd question whether the 's' is needed for the fruit clue? I wondered whether it meant the singular form of the fruit ended in 's' (as a hint).

Everybody knows about Mt. Everest but so few know about Chimborazo. It is a pitty.

I've climbed Chimborazo in 2017 so technically I've been to the highest point on our planet :D

Ok, not getting Quecho, Quecha, Quechu is my fault, I really didn't know the exact spelling, but I would argue Sea Iguana perhaps should be accepted, especially for those translating from another language.

(and yes, for those who can't wait to make this point and probably made a macro for it, it is an English site/quiz, but this site takes type-ins)

Edit: Actually Sea Iguana is one of its official English names, as well as Saltwater Iguana both of which I tried.

Uggghhhhh I kept on guessing quinone and then tried a bunch of other variants of the word, not realizing that I would get it if I changed just one letter :P

I would change question 11 to 'most-spoken indigenous language'. The term native language is usually a synonym for a first language or mother tongue, which would be Spanish in this case.

How did only 23% get marine iguanas? I thought that was a well known fact!

I'm not a native speaker and I tried Sea Iguana, Ocean Iguana, Saltwater Iguana, Galapagos Iguana and Pacific Iguana and it wouldn't accept any of these...maybe that's why :D

Missed opportunity to mention the Galapagos Penguin. Makes sense though, we've already mentioned the Galapagos a few times.
