Not surprisingly a yankee. This question did not have the correct answer:

20. What's that bug that rolls into a ball when you touch it?

We have always called these wooly-bears?

Yes! The wooly-bears do roll up also! But I think most people think of those little pill bugs that are under rocks and logs as the premier rollers. And they do have lots of names....even as a Yank, I know several.
