The Quiz: It’s not unusual to see dolphins, whales and penguins during a visit to Milford Sound/Piopiotahi. What animal won’t you see?
New Zealand is one of several large islands around the world where there have never been native snake populations. The others are Antarctica, Iceland, Ireland and Newfoundland. There are, however, various species of lizard. New Zealand is so remote that when humans first arrived – probably around 600 or 700 years ago – there were no land mammals on the islands aside from a few species of bats.
The correct answer to this quiz is Snakes.
