Come one, come all! Step right up and take the ABC Ortus Sanitatis Quiz! Amaze your friends – mystify your enemies with your encyclopedic knowledge of creatures!
The rules are simple. Presented and numbered here are twenty (20) unretouched creatures from the pages of the Ortus Sanitatis. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to identify them all. Some are laughably easy. Some are fiendishly difficult. Some are trick questions. Which is which?
If you already know the solution because you’ve read the Ortus Sanitatis, don’t spoil it for other readers! A detailed analysis of the answers will be posted later. Have fun [sic]!
I can only say one thing: I have soooo much to learn. I’ll show my ignorance by saying… gryphon (#2)? Pegasus (#13)? Mermaids (#14)? Aaaand, that’s that? Some ring a bell, but I can’t quite tell, especially in English hahaha.
Also I can’t think of what #16 are, but they’ll be visiting me in my nightmares tonight, so thank you for that. XD
Looking forward to the solution to this quiz hehe! Bet everyone will do better than me, but cheers anyway!
The first one is a Myrmecoleon, as I thank Megami Tensei for teaching me that.
