Creatures Quiz No.12

Now that we're in the closing stages of this quiz, I've had a number of queries about amendments I put out when the quiz first came out in October. It would appear that some people didn't get their email. the response is very slow this time, I thought I'd reissue the amendments in case you're holding back sending your entry in incomplete. We need every penny we can raise!!

These are all number count amendments; No.6 (7,4) No. 16. (2,3,5,8)
No.21.(9) No. 23. 5,1,3,7)
Many thanks to everyone who supports my quizzes, in spite of the short sightedness which causes problems.

Fishy Quiz correction.

Apologies for question 6 of the quiz.
The clue should read Rod , not 8 rods.
As a result it is only fair that I discount the question.
