    reveal's Daily Trivia 5.22.19

    1) Lorises are small, nocturnal primates with large eyes. They can be found in forest habitats in what part of the world?


    2) Queen Nefertiti is one of the most famous women of ancient Egypt, thanks in part to her sandstone bust, which became an art icon when it was discovered in 1913. What pharaoh did Nefertiti server alongside from 1353 to 1335 BCE? Answered

    Pharaoh Akhenaten. Nefertiti was often pictured with Akhenaten on decorated tombs and temples of the period, suggesting she had more power and prominence than other Egyptian queens.

    12 (five vowels and seven consonants).

    Consonants H, K, L, M, N, P, W. It's hard to think of a language not using R, S, D-or-T, F-or-V, or G-or-J sounds.

    1) Asian jungles, I believe.

    Dark the stars and dark the moon
    Hush the night and the morning loon
    Tell the horses and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Dark the oceans, dark the sky
    Hush the whales and the ocean tide
    Tell the salt marsh and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    1) South and Southeast Asia. Slender lorises can be found in India and Sri Lanka, while slow lorises can be found in Southeast Asia (particularly Indonesia and the Malay Peninsula). As their name suggests, slow lorises are slower than slender lorises. They also have shorter limbs and smaller eyes and ears.
