Winner!

Meep Contest Enterers! (I know, I know, that's not a word...!) But now I'm going to announce the winner of the last contest! Ok, now I'm regretting making a 2nd round, so TheSafari07 can get a runners up prize, meaning that snowyclaw won! Here are her answers:


Q1. Appears to be a Bald Eagle (or a another raptor of some sort).

Q2. They use their call (which sounds like the roar of a bull).
Q3. Green Lizard
Q4. Nope!
Q5. Not long at all, it starts (at least trying) to stand right after its mom cleans it (bonding time). Then it starts to nurse!
Q6. Baobab!
Q7. The current largest one is the Sunland Baobab in Modjadjiskloof, it's 72ft tall and 154 ft thick!
Q8. Flash its bright colors. :)
Q9. A mirage is a type of optical illusion created by the atmosphere. Yes, you can take a picture of one!
Q10. Tisanes, but the oil is often used.
Q11. Yes, but it's not very common.
Q12. Refraction of light through water droplets in the air.
Q13. Yep, but they're rare. :P

And here are Safari's answers:


Q1 Eagle


Q2 by croaking and puffing out their throats


Q3 Madagascar Giant Day Gecko


Q4 yes


Q5 They are able to stand about 10 minutes straight after birth


Q6 African Baobab Tree
Q7 It is in sun land nursery in south africa. It is 22 meters high and 47 meters wide. 


Q8 They change their colors to attract a mate!


Q9 Its a optical illusion. No you can't take a picture of one. 


Q10 the blade


Q11 yes they can!


Q12: The formation of rainbow is due to the refraction and reflection of the sun's rays as they fall on the rain drops. As a ray passes into a drop of rain,the water inside the drop acts as a prism.The ray is refracted as it enters the drop and is separated into different colors.These colors then undergo total internal reflection on the opposite inner side of the droplet, refract again when they come out of the droplet and reach the eye to enable us see the vitural image of the rainbow.In fact many such droplets are responsible for the formation of the rainbow.


Q13 Yes, but they are really rare!

And here are the right answers! XD

Q1. A fish eagle!
Q2. They puff out their throats and give a loud peeping call.

Q3. A Western European Green Lizard!
Q4. No, they can't swim or float. They bounce along the bottom! 
Q5. Not long, the mum licks her baby clean and then it immediately starts to try and stand.
Q6. That tree is a baobab!
Q7. The largest baobab is found in South Africa, Sunland, Limpopo Province. Wel, you both got it right anyway! 
Q8. A chameleon attracts a mate by changing to bright colours and showing off - maybe like fighting or making himself seem bigger.
Q9. A mirage is an optical illusion, and yes you can take a photo! 
Q10. The very tip of the newest leaves are used.
Q11. Yes, waterfalls can freeze over! But that happens only in very harsh climates.

Q12: The formation of rainbow is due to the refraction and reflection of the sun's rays as they fall on the rain drops. As a ray passes into a drop of rain,the water inside the drop acts as a prism.The ray is refracted as it enters the drop and is separated into different colors.These colors then undergo total internal reflection on the opposite inner side of the droplet, refract again when they come out of the droplet and reach the eye to enable us see the vitural image of the rainbow.In fact many such droplets are responsible for the formation of the rainbow. (TheSafari07's PERFECT answer!)

Q13. Yes, you can find from 3 up to at least nine leafed clovers! I myself have done so when we lived in England. There was this large patch of clovers on the lawn... Sob. I miss that house! D:
So, snowyclaw won! Well done snowy! Your prizes will be sent do you by Special Delivery - also known as Jam-A-Gram! Here are your prizes:

I'm sorry I can't give you either a fox hat or a scarecrow, mine were hacked... DX
Anyway, Safari you get a freedom plushie (dog) and a summer carnival ducky plushie!
Bye!
