Hidden Colors

Fun:**** (3.13)
Difficulty:** (1.75)

Can you find the eleven hidden colours in the following paragraph:

Many injured animals are invited to live at the 'Toronto Range'. Stop in kangaroo corner and marvel at the lovely creatures within. Dig over the potato patch to find small furry caterpillars, but don't yell! Owls can be found swooping for edible rodents, earwigs or perhaps bluebottles in the undergrowth. The brown bear, Rob, lacks grace and may look like an ogre, enter at your own risk! Peacocks can be found showing their colourful wares, which look fantastic when viewed with our ultraviolet torch.

Interesting but soo easy

Posted by tissue03/10/03
Yeah, but it was fun. I think the point of it was to get it right.

red in there twice...injuRED

Posted by bluetwo03/17/03
yes, red is in there twice. also, (aside from the red thing), there are actually TWELVE colours in the paragraph... you forgot about the word "COLOUR" itself! hehehe.. =)

Aside from the red thing (which I also noticed), and the fact that blue, brown and violet were completely obvious, GR8 TEASER!

I thought it was kind of hard at first but it was fun.

love it.

A very nice teaser, good for the many diverse language skill levels here at Braingle. It is this diversity and not individualistic perspectives that I find most appealing here. And it is appealing to that diversity that is the challenge for contributors. So well done. 8)

easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Good teaser! Despite what some people have saids about "brown" being obvious, it was the third last one I found! :oops: Keep up the great work :D

Posted by puttumup12/08/06
:o that was great i loved it..right up my ally :D :D :D :D .great job ..and im skimpy on the complimants,,, :D :D :D :D

Posted by bradon18200112/08/06
This was kind of easy, but since I didn't find all of them, it was kind of hard. It really was a good test of patience to make sure I found them all. Each time I read the paragraph, I'd find another. Good job. :o

Posted by coachpisco12/08/06
I really liked this one. :D

Posted by goodyfish12/08/06
Fun brain teaser, but no one mentioned that PEA is also a color, so there are 12 :wink:

Posted by locutus13ds12/08/06
Got all but Olive and Indigo. I guess I deal in primaries only.. Ha Good One. :lol:

Posted by I_Write_Books12/08/06
Not too bad

Posted by I_Write_Books12/08/06
enjoyable but easy

Posted by scallio12/08/06
Darn the colors OLIVE and INDIGO! I didn't find them. I assumed you must have been referring to Peacock (blue?) and Pea (as in pea green) as colors. I must have read that paragraph 6 times! :o Thanks for a fun morning! :)

Posted by tonjawithaj12/08/06
I missed olive and indigo too, but ah well! It was well done! Keep em coming! :D

Posted by Synlapse12/08/06
I got all but olive, but olived it anyway. :wink:

Posted by nikitafullmoon12/08/06
That was fun! I agree with OldChinaHand; we have to remember that we're not all from the USA. Also, to expand on that, we're all different ages, too, and what might be really easy for a 30-year old could be difficult for an 8-year old...and vice-versa, believe me...! And thanks, Ninjaxdream, for the Canadian/British spelling of "colourful"! :lol:

Posted by iteachkids12/08/06
I had to print it out and go from there. What a FUN one! Thanx!!! :D

Posted by amn085612/08/06
it was such a fun teaser, I didn't find the red that you had listed because it was the first thing I found in inju(red), so I wasn't looking for it!

Posted by bookwormRLB12/08/06
Got 10 of them! I missed black. I had wondered if it was a trick since red's in there twice.

Posted by senther712/08/06
YAY fun word "serch" got all the obips :lol:

Posted by breathesunshine12/08/06
This was fun! I also had to print it out so I could circle as I went. I found 11 but included two reds and peacock. I missed black and green. I guess if you included pea as a color there could really be 13! Keep up the good work!

Posted by becky1856712/08/06
i liked that one! it was easy and hard at the same time :roll:

Posted by celtic_knot12/08/06
Olive?! I don't think that's a good color. You should try to use more well known colors. But otherwise good. :D

Posted by phyllisa12/08/06
I really liked this one! I missed pink but put in Pea as in pea green. Good one! :)

Posted by Kelby12/09/06
I LOVE teasers like this! ! They make me excited. Submit more!

Posted by KAMEREONE12/09/06
Guess I wasn't the only one who saw the second 'red'! Aside from that, this was great fun, had to actually wake up to see it!

Posted by RRAMMOHAN12/10/06
Got all except Indigo. Fine teaser. WTG.

Posted by CSIFreke1019012/10/06
Inju(RED) bothered me too.

Posted by zaya12/11/06
Nice one, missed olive and indigo, but found both reds so I thought I was only missing one.

Posted by vlerma12/16/06
Very nice job. I like word searches like this and for me it was very easy. You had a very nice theme to write about however. More please? :D

Posted by Qrystal12/18/06
I enjoyed that. I also saw two "red"s, noted that "peacock" is a colour, and can keep the others company in missing "olive"... but thinking I had 11 already (plus an extra red), I stopped looking. At one point though, just for fun, I decided to try looking backwards... and I saw poo!! That can be a colour too! :P (Oh dear. :P)

Posted by Qrystal12/18/06
OH yeah and: I appreciate seeing "colour" spelled that way! :P WOOHOO!

Posted by teen_wiz02/03/07
Qrystal... naughty, naughty... :P I also missed olive, but got the rest. Great job!! :D

Posted by doehead12/08/09
I guess all the little ones will enjoy this when they get home from school.Way to easy for anybody over 12. :( :( :(

Posted by warorpeace12/08/09
that was hard cause this is my first teaser @braingle :oops:

Posted by auntiesis12/08/09
Not too easy, not too hard. Just the way I like them. :D :D :D

Posted by emu77alu0212/08/09
Olive stumped me! I was trying to find purple or white for the 11th. :oops: It was a really fun teaser! :D

Posted by patiencewithaP12/08/09
Fun even though I missed olive. Great job! :D

Posted by braingle10012/08/09
I really liked this teaser, and I got Brown, Voilet, Pink, and another easy one.

Posted by braingle10012/08/09
blue was the other one, sorry for double posting.

Posted by UptheHill12/08/09
Color Wonderful!!! :lol:

Posted by leroyleroy12/08/09
very colorful--its good

Posted by bookworm081212/08/09
Ummmm....puting red in here twice doesn't count as 11 colors, it's only 10!

Posted by elentir12/09/09
@ Bookworm - They weren't counting red twice. There are 11 unique colors listed above.

Posted by crocodile08/17/10
I loved this teaser! Easy Peesy, but if there really was a Toronto Range, I'd go there! :D

Posted by Babe12/08/12
Enjoyable one and challenging. Fun! :D

Posted by gaylewolf12/08/12
Fun! Thanks for posting. :wink: :)

Posted by lukasiwicz12/08/12
If one considers "pea" to be a color, there are 13 colors in the passage, not counting the dual occurrence of "red," and not counting the word "colour,": red, olive, orange, pink, indigo, vert (a shade of green), yellow, blue, brown, black, green, pea (another shade of green), and violet. So there.

Posted by cutebug12/08/12
A little too easy. :D :D

Posted by Caramell12/08/12
technically there is only 10 colors cos red has been used twice.

Posted by bestgirl12/08/12
This type is not my cup of tea, but I see a lot of people like them.

Posted by Maggiethe8th12/08/12
I only had energy/patience for the first 6 as I started my Saturday routine-loved the giggle feeling when I saw them! thank you!

Posted by iggy3912/08/12
I thought it was well planned and fun. I missed indigo but I really enjoyed this one. Thx :D :) :) :) I was looking for other things too, like food or animals but didn't come up with a whole lot of either. Just really enjoyed this one. I said that didn't I :oops:

Posted by catmom12/08/15
:D :D I can't believe that I got them all on the first run through. Yay! :D :D

Posted by raisin9912/08/15
easy, but enjoyable I did find red twice

Actually the correct answer to the question posed is... "YES" The question was... "Can you find the eleven hidden colours in the following paragraph:"
