A quiz like this can really re-grow on you! Can you score a 5/5 or will four-ever be good enough?

#1. The human body has many cool abilities. Which of the following body parts can regrow itself?

The liver is one of the special body parts in humans that can regrow itself after damage, unless it is diseased.

#2. Which of the following animals can live forever?

Unless eaten by predators or killed by other things, the immortal jellyfish can infinitely return to an earlier stage of their life cycle and live forever!

#3. True or false: if you put a sea sponge through a blender and blitzed it into cells, its cells can still recombine to form a new sea sponge.

While some animals can regenerate certain body parts, sea sponges are a rock star when it comes to this. If their individual cells are not damaged by the blending process, sea sponge cells will be able to reconnect with each other and regroup into a brand-new sponge.

#4. Regenerative agriculture can help make farming more sustainable by helping soils recover and become more fertile. Which of the following actions can help to create healthy soils?

By growing lots of different plants, you can create a complex environment where lots of roots can interact with different parts of the soil to keep it alive and happy.

#5. True or false: fish skin can be grafted onto human skin to help burn wounds heal.

True! Tilapia fish skin has been used to help patients with burn injuries recover faster.
