[7-30-2022] Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz Question: It’s not unusual to see dolphins, whales, and penguins during a visit to Milford Sound/Piopiotahi. What animal won’t you see?
The given options are:
Correct Answer: Snakes
Info: Researchers recognize about 3,900 different species of Snakes. They categorize these reptiles into the suborder Serpentes and separate them into 30 different families. New Zealand is one of several large islands around the world where there have never been native snake populations. The others are Antarctica, Iceland, Ireland, and Newfoundland. There are, however, various species of lizards. New Zealand is so remote that when humans first arrived—probably around 600 or 700 years ago—there were no land mammals besides a few species of bats on the islands. (Ref)
