Caption Contest winners & Cranial Challenge

Congratulations to Traumador the Tyrannosaur who has won the caption competition from last month, featuring Darren Naish and Dave Martill!



"The itsy bittsy spider crawled up the cliff face, down came a wave and washed the spider out"

Traumador, you have won a personalised A3-sized illustration of the tetrapod or tetrapods of your choice! I would also like to offer the same prize to the stars of the photo.

The next competition has the same prize (it's all I can offer!), but is arguably more difficult. I have named it "Cranial Challenge", as it's all about identifying vertebrate skulls! There are 26 questions in the quiz, in alphabetical order from A to Z. If you think the answer for "A" is an American alligator (it isn't, by the way), then you can either just submit "alligator", or be more specific if you want. Most of the answers are the common name of the animal, but a few are of the scientific name. Send your answers to me by e-mail (see profile for e-mail address).
