Eyewire Brain Zoo: Primate Trivia

Let’s round the corner to the Primate Sanctuary, where our closest cousins in the animal world will greet us!

Primate Trivia

Aug 26 @11 AM – Aug 28 @11 AM US ET with Tamarin Trivia Power Hour on Aug 28 @11 AM ET

zoo, animals, gorilla, fun, competition, science

With only a 2% genetic difference from humans, and 8-9 billion neurons, Gorillas are extremely intelligent great apes.  Check out this video about Koko the Gorilla, who learned over 1000 signs in ASL during her lifetime!

We’ll end our trivia with Tamarin Happy Hour, where you’ll get a new question to answer every 2 minutes. Tamarins are squirrel sized monkeys found in Central and South America. They don’t quite have the brain power of the Gorilla, but they still very intelligent and get extra points for cuteness. The Emperor tamarin could certainly win a mustache contest any day!

Now it’s time to see who the smartest primate of all will be!  Could it be you? Find out by testing your trivia skills this Sunday!

Swag (generously sponsored by @susi): The top scoring player will win 1 poster and 1 sticker sheet! Second and third place each also win sticker sheets.

Special thanks to Eyewire player and zookeeper @Atani for writing the trivia for this competition!
