Now, my Latin is a bit rusty, well it's worse than rusty, and my ability to spell in latin is even worse. But I gave it a good shot. I know a lot of the kids in my class will have got around 100% which is pretty awesome for them, in this case though I'm just going to be stoked if I pass. There's other things I'm good at, well better at than remembering things in Latin. But either way, I thought I'd share with you some of the cooler creatures that were on the list, and some of my attempts at remembering who and what they were.
The eyelash worm. Easily identified by its golden kita (ie. golden eyelashes), generally fat and spikey, lives in a tube that kinda makes it look like a nightmare ice cream.
Bamboo worm, long segments, same nose and tail. Memorable not only because of how it looks but also that it kinda looks like mangled bamboo. If you can work out how to remember "sarsi" you get a prize of feeling awesome about yourself.
One of my favourite little guys, fondly known as "Punky", I do feel terrible though because I completely forgot his first name in the exam.
HERMIT CRAB!! and if you can't make jokes about a pubescent hermit crab then you really aren't trying
The top of the pops this guy, best name ever, he looks exactly as it sounds, like an inflated stegosaur!
This is what we call a "Sea Biscuit" at home, both disc shaped and crispy
Looks like it’s from Avatar, and that creature spends most of its life hanging around the bottom of the ocean, just looking stunning where no-one can see
Generally ugly, can be any shape. White with brown parts and can be mostly rectangular. Many have ribs with spines. They look like shells that have been through the Arctic and back again.
Conical and limpet looking, appears to have a small alien baby inside, don’t believe me? Have a look!
Has evenly shaped ears, predominantly see through, very delicate looking. Such an easily broken looking thing to be living up here.
