KQED and California Academy of Sciences are teaming up and hosting a contest to give away one family membership to Cal Academy (good for the ENTIRE year)! This membership will start just in time for the new exhibit, Snakes & Lizards: The Summer of Slither. Members are invited to be among the first to see the Academy's new slithering, crawling, and hopping friends during Member Previews May 6 - 8 and the evening of May 11. Visitors will get a chance to see over 300 feet of snake, plus iguanas, geckos and other reptiles too cute and cuddly to miss.
Here's how to enter:
Each day from May 2 - 4, we'll post a trivia question about snakes and lizards. Email the answer to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will randomly select a winner from all correct entries. Answer more than one question and be entered additional times! Send us your full name and address so that if you are a winner, we can notify you and mail you the prize. The winner will be notified by email on May 5 but may not receive their membership package in the mail until May 6.
One more thing! Sign up for KQED's QUEST e-newsletter for all things science, environment and nature.
Today's question is: Approximately 20 percent of lizard species are viviparous. What does being viviparous mean?
Yesterday's question was: True or False: Snakes stop growing once they reach a certain age.
The first question was: There is only one continent on which lizards do not currently live. Which continent is it?
Email the answer of today's question to email@example.com.
Value of each family membership is $199.
