Whether you are out on a bike ride, taking a hike through the mountains, or even just taking a leisurely stroll through the park, a wild animal encounter could happen at any moment. And depending on your location, the type of animal can be very different.
That is why it is always important to know what kinds of animals you could run into and, if an encounter does occur, how to react to it.
Animals in the wild are almost always going to feel threatened by humans, but depending on the animal, there are a lot of different ways we can react to make sure everyone, including the animal, can just continue on their way safely.
For example, if you were out on a hiking trip in the mountains, and suddenly a massive grizzly bear and her cubs wander their way across the same trail that you are walking on, what would the correct course of action be to make sure the bears don’t get startled and the mother doesn’t feel like you are a danger to her children?
That is exactly what this quiz will help you learn!
So check out the eight questions below to see if you really know how to react to encounters with a wide variety of creatures!
