Try Again...
Perhaps you're more into human biology than animal or plant biology, but just so you know, it's a bizarre and wonderful field of knowledge, as nature is so varied and incredible. How about giving it another try?
 
Great!
You know quite a bit about animal & plant biology! It's a bizarre and wonderful field of knowledge, as nature is so varied and incredible. Obviously you're not expected to know it all, but there's always room to improve your score even further.
 
You ACED It!
