I simply ask each scout to make a list of ten animals they have seen, and
tell me when they have completed the requirement. I do not ask to see the
list (a Scout is Trustworthy). I simply ask them to make the list for their
own benefit, so they can be absolutely sure in their own minds they have met
the requirement before telling me on their honor.
