  1. 1. Whose booty is this?

    Elephant
    Armadillo
    Hippo
    Rhinoceros
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The scuttlebutt: That's not body armor: The rhino is protected by thick skin, some of it as soft as a baby's bottom.

  2. 2. Whose bottom is this?

    Cat
    Rabbit
    Lamb
    Polar bear
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The scuttlebutt: There's a reason that guy hoppin' down the bunny trail is named Peter Cottontail.

    Elephant
    Rhinoceros
    Wildebeest
    Warthog
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Elephant

    The scuttlebutt: These majestic creatures use their tails to swat away insects — and sometimes as a "leash" for their calves to clutch with their tiny trunks.

  4. 4. Whose tush is this?

    Koala
    Sheep
    Dog
    Alpaca
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The scuttlebutt: Alpacas' tails may be stubby, but they are an important part of their body language, signaling aggression, submission, and alertness. (And cuteness.)

  5. 5. Whose backside is this?

    Rhino
    Hippo
    Elephant
    Wildebeest
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Hippos are all about that bass: Their vocalizations have been recorded at 115 decibels — basically as loud as Meghan Trainor would sound if you were shaking it near the speakers at her concert.

  6. 6. Whose moneymaker is this?

    Wolf
    Llama
    Alpaca
    Dog
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Bottom line: Corgis are winning the butt game.

  7. 7. Whose derrière is this?

    Leopard
    Cheetah
    Giraffe
    Antelope
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The scuttlebutt: There’s no easy way to say this: Giraffe foreplay begins with the male headbutting a female’s rump, encouraging her to pee. When she does...He. Drinks. It. If her lemonade is tasty — i.e., she’s in heat — he’ll stick around and try to mate with her. In other words, giraffes have golden showers on the reg.

  8. 8. Whose bum is this?

    Squirrel
    Koala
    Rabbit
    Sloth
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The scuttlebutt: No one appreciates a sassy koala's butt more than her joeys, who transition to solid foods (eucalyptus) by eating their mom's poop.

  9. 9. Whose fanny is this?

    Serval
    Panda
    Cat
    Dog
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The scuttlebutt: Cats use their tails not only for balance (for instance, when they are raiding the refrigerator) but also to express their emotions.

  10. 10. Whose heinie is this?

    Hyena
    Wildebeest
    Mandrill
    Rainbow hippopotamus
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The scuttlebutt: The male mandrill's rainbow rump becomes even brighter when he is excited or angry.

  11. 11. Whose behind is this?

    melanieAndTyson / Creative Commons / Via Flickr: 95844392@N07
    Highland cow
    Bighorn sheep
    Sheepdog
    Ostrich
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The scuttlebutt: Do not approach an ostrich from behind (or anywhere, really): They can kill you with a single kick.
