Hello Folks!Be they big or small, insects are undoubtedly highly fascinating creatures. Chances are wherever you are, whatever you're doing, an insect is not a million miles away and you might not even know it! So what better reason than to have a quiz to see how much you know about them.
Each Monday for 12 weeks, I will be posting a little teaser for you. Without looking in books or on the internet (i.e - no cheating), see if you can identify the insect. On Wednesday, so as long as no-one has guessed it, I will post one clue. On Friday I will post the answer along with some additional information for your interest.MYSTERY INSECT QUIZ#11A leaden Captain.
Ooh anagram I think. I may be some time....
Caroline in Jersey
Could be an insect beginning with grey
Just working on the captain bit
One or two moths in this catagory
Grey arches etc
No good at anagrams, it just makes me think of Captain Peacock (Are you being served?) I can't get him out of my head now to think of anything else lol (The answer being Peacock butterfly by the way!)
Its grey and a captain pepper
Think we need a clue Mrs T
Clue tomorrow folks.
The captain that came to my mind was Captain Pugwash!
I'm sure I can remember there being a Pug Moth, so.. I wonder.. is there a Grey Pug Moth?
Clue: only five letters in my name appear once, the rest appear twice.
aint a clue just like yours Mrst T
Blimey riley MrsT!!! Absolutely no idea!! Lol!
More like a rocker than an insect but 'metalhead' fulfills the criteria.
What about one of the Skippers maybe Grizzled Skipper
Going hospital visiting, will check later
I like that, Ray, fits the clue well.
All will be revealed tomorrow...
Certainly fits both clues Ray! Well done!
