This young man is boasting about the many and varied pets he keeps.
"I have 10 pets. Not just canaries and dogs, but tortoises and even snakes! I can't tell you how many of each animal I have, but there are six wings, three shells and 26 legs between all of them!"
Can you work out how many snakes he has?
Give it another try!
This might seem obvious, but your answer will be the name of an animal.
That's right! He has two pet snakes.
If there are six wings, then there can only be three canaries, with a total of six legs. Three shells means three tortoises, with four legs each for a total of 12 legs. Added together, these six animals have 18 legs, which leaves four more animals and eight legs. Since dogs have four legs and snakes none, there must be two dogs and two snakes.
