Ben’s Guessing game – Week 6 from Singapore

Greetings from Singapore! By the time you’ve read this it would be my bedtime. How, you may ask. Well, in Singapore the time is 7 hours ahead from my readers in Europe.

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnyway , I’ve got a guessing game for you, no matter what time it might be. Today mum and I went to Jurong Bird Park and we saw the ostrich feeding (I got to feed one!) At the end the keepers showed four eggs from four different flightless birds. Below are the four eggs and the birds. (One of the birds shown does not own an egg in the basket).

Can you match the eggs to their mums? Each egg has a number:

  1. The big one
  2. The black one
  3. The spotty one
  4. The normal looking one (Next to the black one)

And now the mums-

  1. Rhea
  2. Cassowary
  3. Ostrich
  4. Emu
  5. Kiwi

Which bird does not have an egg here? Which egg belongs to which mum? Leave a comment to submit your answer!

Good luck to all of you!

Whose eggs are these?

These are the birds whose eggs you have to guess

  1. No 1, the big one, belongs to the ostrich
    No 2, the black one, belongs to the cassowary
    No 3, the spotty one, is from the rhea
    No 4, the normal-looking one, is from the emu.
    The Kiwi has no egg.

    Is the prize a return flight ticket to come and see you?

    Good to hear from you in S’pore, and glad you are visiting all those places you love.


  2. My guesses:

    Big one: ostrich.
    Black one: emu.
    Spotty one: cassowary.
    Normal-looking one: rhea.

  3. Thank you for taking part. I remember the answers are

    Big one: Ostrich
    Black one:Emu (Because their feathers are black)
    Spotty one: Cassowary (Because they are camouflaged to match the forest)
    Normal looking one: Rhea

    Congratulations to Snailquake, who seems to know a lot about birds!

    • Hurrah! They were actually wild guesses. I thought about the sizes and colours of the birds and that’s as much thinking as I did.

      Do I win a thousand pounds? (Just askin’.)
