    This thread continues from here: Zoo Decisions 2 (African Precinct)

    Hello everyone, it is me, Ebirah. Here to direct the coolest of all the precincts, Australasia! We are going to have a ton of fun building this complex, I am sure of it!

    We will have at LEAST 3 major projects for this precinct to construct, but for now let's just have some fun and play a little game of trivia.

    PROJECT 1: COUNTRY TRIVIA
    I will post pictures of 6 country flags of Oceania. Whoever guesses correctly will be able to pick an animal for a single species exhibit. At most, each person will only be able to build 2 exhibits to maintain fairness.

    OK I had to learn these for school not long ago, so here goes:

    1. Papua New Guinea
    2. Marshall islands
    3. Australia
    4. Tuvalu
    5. Vanuatu
    6. New Zealand (slightly changed)

    Sorry for hogging them, I am kind of on a quest to win this precinct though :)

    Story time!

    Once upon a time (2015), New Zealand had a very expensive debate on whether or not to change our flag. The current flag was deemed too similar to Australia’s flag; not to mention really it was really hard to draw.

    Everyone in New Zealand was invited to draw a new flag and post it in. The Kiwi shooting a laser beam from it’s eye didn’t quite make the cut; though the one’s that did made you wonder why it didn’t.

    A panel made up of some of the wisest people from each town decided on four flags we could choose from should the flag change. But the proposed replacement was so unpopular, we decided to keep the flag we had. Some people had a genuine attachment to it; while for others, it was simply the lesser of two evils.

    And everyone lived happily ever after.

    The end.

    I am aware of that, but someone here not knowing about that wouldn't know the answer to it in the first place. You don't really give someone a question that's not even correct and expect them to answer it correctly...

    @Ebirah766 has a decent sense of humour, I think it was intended as a joke. To make sure everyone understood that, he used a flag with a Kiwi on it - a unique symbol of NZ that we’d all recognise. :p

    I feel it was a joke too, but it seemed to be a formal quiz-like format and a "question" like that is still misleading.

    All who guessed got it right. Please select the species you want, everyone.

    A pair of 1.1 Grey-headed flying fox Pteropus poliocephalus will inhabit a small aviary, with branches for roosting and a mesh wall for visitors to feed them during encounters.

    The female from Melbourne Zoo was handraised and enjoys meeting visitors during encounters. She is named ‘Kinta’ - an Aboriginal name meaning ‘laughter.’

    The male is from Adelaide Zoo and does not interact with visitors. He is called ‘Yamur’ - an Aboriginal name meaning ‘ghost.’
