How Well Do You Know Your Green Porno?

season 3 sundance channel green porno isabella rosselliniIf you’re a fan of the Sundance Channel’s series Green Porno with Isabella Rossellini, you’re probably already aware that the acclaimed show launched its third season on Monday (with a focus on marine animals). But how well do you really know the mating habits of various animal species?

In order to celebrate the new season, we’ve agreed to host another event with the show… this time a quiz (which you’ll find below the jump). Answer the questions below in the comments; if you score 80% or above (that is, only miss two questions), you’ll be entered into a drawing for a Sundance Channel prize package that includes:

  • Ella Vickers bags, made out of recycled sails
  • 1 Bag at a Time farmers market bags
  • A Boku journal made from recycled paper
  • Sundance pen
  • Sundance Channel t-shirt (made from organic cotton)
  • Sundance Channel hat (made from organic cotton)

Ready to get started? Here’s the quiz (and links to videos with the answers… this isn’t that hard)

  1. In which species does the male have a “harem” of females from which to choose a mate?
  2. This animal, featured in season 3, mates in “orgies” (aka, spawning)
  3. Which species from season 3 changes gender as a part of its maturation process?
  4. For every on of these animals caught, 10 other lives are lost. These wasted lives are called bicatch.
  5. Which species can communicate by luminescent effect or shape-change and show love with a “20 arm embrace”?
  6. This animal can reproduce asexually by fragmenting its body.
  7. This animal can have an erection 6 ft long.
  8. This animal uses darts to inflict pain on its partner before mating.
  9. This animal has no brain.
  10. This animal is a “sequential hermaphrodite.”

Take your time… you’ve got until Wednesday, September 23rd, to get your answers in. Once we have a winner, we’ll announce him or her here at sustainablog.
