  9. At Rafiki's Planet Watch there is a "Whizz Quiz" which asks questions in the men's bathroom and says to find the answers "wash your hands." The questions are:
    1. How much do elephants pee?
    2. How far can Rinos and Taapirs pee?
    Did you wash your hands? Yes or No

The Affection Section

  1. The animals at Affection Section look like domesticated animals, but are, in fact, endangered and minor breeds.
  2. Some of the goats are San Clementes from the island off California. Since there are only a few hundred left in the wild, it is hoped that Animal Kingdom's breeding program will help the species.
  3. The rest of the goats are from Africa.
