Q: How will the tie breaker be handled?
A: There will be 2-3 questions about animals not on the list, but accessible in the guide books. These questions are not counted for the regular test and are often not needed.
Q: Do we need to learn anything about reproductive behaviors, number of offspring, mating seasons, etc?
A: Yes, students should be familiar with this information.
Q: Will a ruler be provided on event day (for example, to measure tracks if provided in picture format)?
A: No, this will not be necessary, any tracks will also state this information.
