Tetrapods do not include reptiles, amphibians, birds or insects? This million-zloty question was heard by Mr. Mateusz Żaboklicki from Warsaw in “Millionaires”.

In Tuesday's episode of “Millionaires”, a million zloty question was asked. Mr. Mateusz, who deals with photography and writing poems, competed for the main prize. The Warsaw writer reached the million-dollar question with two available lifelines: a phone call to a friend and a change of question.

The million-dollar question concerned tetrapods, a group of four-legged vertebrates, originally partially or completely terrestrial, that have two pairs of limbs. Currently, tetrapods include amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.

The answer to the million-dollar question

Among animals such as reptiles, amphibians, birds and insects, only the latter have three pairs of legs. These insects are not tetrapods, but hexapods. Therefore the correct answer worth a million zlotys is D: “insects”.
