I know there are websites etc that describe the unicorn as Scotland's national 'animal', but there is no such animal as a unicorn, it's simply a heraldic device, like a griffin, a dragon and a two-headed eagle. This isn't what stopped me getting 100%, however, as I STILL haven't learned the order of Henry VIII's wives.

But how do you know that Unicorns don't exist or did exist but are now extinct ? Is the Yeti, or Bigfoot real ? I'm sure there were stories about a "great animal with a long snout and horns coming out of its mouth" before elephants were officially discovered.

Oh, and I still get Henry VIII's wives mixed up, he had that many !

Thanks for taking my quiz and the time to comment.
