Kudos are a good idea, though I think you RR & myself might be trading kudos back & forth evenly. Then again, RR has way more to spare. 8)

Btw, you got 2 out of 6 right. 8O Better than I would have done if I hadn't looked up the answers.

C'mon, ppl!

I'll give the first person to get them all right 20 kudos ....

Upon further review, I'm going to call it a completely correct sweep.

Quote:
Parapodia
I was looking for "setae", but after looking up Parapodia, it's so close, it's not worth splitting hairs. Kudos to you, and take it away for the next question!

Edit - ha...didn't realize you mixed that up the first time. Oh well, I know you were *thinking* the correct answer.

Nope, that was correct. Though, I think that nudi's are primarily carnivores, I think omnivore is probably more accurate, as you explained.

All yours!
