Random Alphabet Quiz 4

It’s been a while since I last did a Quiz Post on my blog, so in need of a quick post I decided to write one. Once again, following the tradition of my Random Alphabet Quiz’s, this one involves 26 questions, with the first question’s answer beginning with A, then the second question’s answer beginning with B, and the third question’s answer beginning C and so on, all the way through the alphabet. Now I also thought I would mix it up a little bit more this time by having an Animal based theme; so not necessarily random, but still, it’s a random idea, and I might throw a dinosaur or two in there just to mix it up a bit. Anyway, basic rules, answer as many as you can, either on paper or in the comments (or on Facebook if you want to share the post……….please), and then check back next week to find out if you were correct. So here you are, Enjoy:
