    320 animals non humans +4 humans
    5160 toes
    since bus driver and conductor are not mentioned I will exclude them otherwise add 20 toes
    5160 toes or 5180 toes

    The bus was driving and because the children aren’t allowed to drive there must at least be a bus driver in the bus.
    It is a school bus and I don’t think there is a conductor on a school bus. I don’t know for sure because in the Netherlands we don’t have school buses.  And even on the regular buses the bus driver is also the conductor.
    So I think 5170 is the right answer.
