A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Thursday, August 11th by Dr. Jane Goodall

Geek Culture Internet

As we’ve reported before, our good friends over at Google are starting up a daily puzzle challenge. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. And much to our enjoyment, they’ve decided to share the puzzles with us at GeekDad (hmm… Google a Day? GD? GeekDad?), so each morning at 12:01am ET you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here. SPOILER WARNING: As a test, we’re going to leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS! Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience. And now, without further ado, we give you… TODAY’S PUZZLE BY DR. JANE GOODALL:

If you were to join me in Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania to observe one of our closest living relatives in the wild, you might hear them voice this familiar arrival call. Hint: I often express myself in a similar fashion when I open my lectures.


Search [groups called mobs]. Find animals that live in groups called mobs include meerkats and kangaroos. Use height clue to narrow down to kangaroos. Search [largest kangaroo]. Find the largest kangaroo, and the largest marsupial on the planet, is a male red kangaroo.
