What is Street Creatures? This is the game I run on Twitter every Friday. I’ve
collected all the past quizzes here in one place so you can either relive them, or play
them for the first time.
How does it work? Provided are four, seemingly unrelated clues, that are all
connected by a wild organism that can be found in a city. Look at the four clues,
do some research, and when you think you’ve figured it out, click on ‘Answer’
to reveal what connects the clues, and how they are connected.
Alice in Wonderland
The collective noun for a group of hedgehogs is an array.
Which came first, the urchin or the hedgehog? Turns out it was the hedgehog, who were known in Middle English as urchins or urcheon. The sea urchins got their name from this so are basically sea hedgehogs.
Alice in Wonderland:
When Alice plays croquet with the Queen, in place of balls are live hedgehogs. “…it was very provoking to find that the hedgehog had unrolled itself, and was in the act of crawling away.”
