Photo Ark Quiz

Quiz: Can You Identify These Animals From Their Close-Ups?

Are those scales or feathers? Figure out what creature you’re looking at based on these detailed photographs.

Among National Geographic Photo Ark’s intimate portraits of the world’s animals are close-ups of creatures’ features. From spotted fur to smooth scales, photographer Joel Sartore’s images demonstrate the vast and colorful diversity of nature.

Sartore has photographed more than 6,000 species to date for Photo Ark as part of a joint project with National Geographic. He hopes to photograph as many of the world’s creatures as possible—before some disappear.
