When i search on google images of Socotra (Yemen), the image of what you say is Madagascar is the 6th on appearing. Are you sure that it is from Madagascar?

If you follow the copyright link, it tells you exactly where in Madagascar it is.

@nathaniel trees of the genus boababs yes, but not the species shown in the picture, you can find mountains anywhere too, but the one in the picture is only in switzerland.

The one that is widespread in mainland africa is also known as the monkeybread tree.

That's hilarious. This specific tree is endemic to Madagascar. The source that uses the photo to promote a trip to Socotra shows you something you will definitely not see. You'd see similar trees but not this one.

Don't mix up baobabs from Madagascar and Dendrosicyos from Socotra.

Are those particular baobabs specific to Madagascar? Or did you just have to guess all the countries with baobabs, like I did?

I havent found any references of the trees shown in the picture growing anywhere outside of madagascar, I checked to be sure. All the sources I find say it is found only in western madagascar

Plus there are only 8 species of boabab 6 of which are madagacar(ean/ic/oninan?) but they dont look anything like the picture imo. So there is no contest here. only similarity is a broad trunk. But the ones in the picture "adansonia grandidieri" are instantly recognisable.

The fact that there are other species of boabab does not even matter, it is a picture quiz, so the other species in mainland africa an australia are irrelevant anyway.

Interesting. I kept thinking Yemen too, for that one.

Do vaguely Asian-looking people only wear fur and hang out with birds in one country?

Eagle hunter is still more specific than the Balinese dancer, if you don't know the folk costumes in detail.

Kyrgyz dresses are certainly different, and apparently the tradition is not alive anymore in Kazakhstan itself (or China or Russia), though you can take a photo with an eagle at many tourist places around there.

I love picture quizzes, and really enjoyed this one. I agree with what tschutzer and Djilas are saying, though. I vastly prefer the pictures of landscapes, cities, or buildings to those of people.

The Madagascar picture was difficult. People who aren't specialized in botany would spend time typing in almost every african country

That's exactly what I did. I kept on thinking it was East Africa like Kenya or Tanzania but when that didn't work I tried a lot of other African countries. Never thought of Madagascar :P

Same goes for the Ecuador one. Random-looking Andean mountain with a llama (or alpaca or vicuna) hanging out in front of it on a plateau? Could also be Peru or Bolivia. (I know that mountain is the highest in Ecuador and all (thanks to the picture's link), but does it really have distinctive features that the average, or even better than average, Jetpunker can recognize?)

At first I thought so too, but it's the hat that makes it distinctly Vietnamese.

The non la (conical hat) is specific to Vietnamese people. Thai and Lao different shape, Khmer people tend to wear Krama (scarves)
