So, I got this crazy idea for a project, but obviously, I am going to need help on it. My idea is to create a "Test Your Glider I.Q" quiz and have it posted on GG so ppl can learn and have fun learning at the same time. Questions like, which of the following are unsafe foods for gliders? Which of the following dimensions are the minimum requirement in a cage? Etc. It would be multiple choice and whatnot.

What I need help on is

A) Figuring out which questions should be on said quiz.

and

B) The correct answers, of course!

(Obviously a question like "What is the best diet" will NOT be on the quiz, as that is a matter of opinion, not fact.)

So...ya wanna help me put this together? Would be great fun AND we get to educate ppl, too.

<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></font id="quote"></blockquote id="quote">

that one may not work. not everyone agrees with it and it may depend on the amount of garlic (i still wouldnt feed garlic though). a better question would be can catnip kill a sugar glider or is cat nip toxic to gliders.

http://www.youtube.com/user/LuckyGliderRescue you could get lots of ideas from ed's videos.

Not everyone will agree with a few of these. There would need to probably be a disclaimer that this is the opinion of whoever creates it.

I will have to keep that in mind! Of course, wording of the question itself will have to come into consideration too. Such as the wording "garlic can be toxic to sugar gliders" is different than saying "garlic is toxic to sugar gliders".

But I will have to remember the disclaimer as well. This is going to be a work in progress and it will need proofreading. I don't expect this to be done in a week or even a month. I am looking for a good 25 to 50 questions. More than that, I think ppl would lose interest as it would become tedious and not fun. Though maybe I can have it as a three parter: beginning, intermediate, and advanced. I will def require help w/the advanced. I haven't even had my babies for a full year yet!!!

I think that one should be worded
1. "do sugar gliders teeth continuously grow like rodents?"
A. Yes
B. No
(Explanation) Their teeth do not grow like rodents because they aren't rodents
Oh and... 2."Is a sugar glider a rodent"
A. Yes
B. No
(Explanation) They are marsupials

I also think you should add in explanations like I did there to give the people a better understandingc. Lol and put 2# in before 1# cuz 1#I tells the answer (I numbered them so you'd know which ones I was talking about)
