My friend showed me this puzzle yesterday, and since then Ive been trying to think what I would do!!, DH seems to think Im reading too much into this, but its one of those puzzles where I dont think the answer is straight forward, so what would you do??


You are in a zoo.You have been instructed to realease any ONE animal of your choice,but you must also kill ONE animal,which animal do you release into the city?.,and which do you kill?.You must choose 2 different animals.

Hi Jules,

Sounds like one of those things to test what kind of personality you have. eg. if you release a wild tiger and kill a cute harmless parrot, you're probably not a very nice person! LOL

I would release something that would have a better quality of life if it were free and could survive in our climate (eg. not a tropical bird), and also something that isn't dangerous! I'm not sure what this animal is though, maybe a butterfly if they had some there :)

I'd like to say I'd kill a spider as they freak me out but I'm too woosy to go near them, so I don't know on that one as I'm not sure I could kill an animal, maybe an insect in the reptile house as they don't have a very long life expectency anyway.

So Mrs Too nice, did I pass? ;)

(You've inspired me to post something similar)

This sounds like you have to think laterally for the answer to this :confused: ?

Is it a trick question Jules or is there way out?

Personally I think you have to read more into it than it is, it cant be as simple as, Id realease this and kill that, I think there is a method to the answer!!, cant quiet work out what, and boy is it annoying me!!!.

I dont' think it is a lateral thinking type puzzle, I think it's more of a personality analysis.
It's also on here.....

Looking at the other questions also make me think that.
