The way this works is that we start off with an animal and ask three questions about it. Whoever gets the answers first posts them and asks the next questions - extra credit for posting a picture of the animal in question. Google is your friend on this one. ;)

First one:
What is the common name of Dendrobates pumilio?
Why are they considered great Mothers?
Where are they found?

Ready - set - go.

I learned some interesting facts about the strawberry poison dart frog, but it seems to me that this game could use a twist of some kind if it's to fly. Google as a friend makes it too easy because my friend Google can always come out and play.

Excellant point there reph. What kind of twist should we do? Maybe write a poem using the facts found or a post the answers in a short story of 50 words or less?

Maybe a trivia quiz, ten questions or so, with a prize for the first set of correct answers?

Oh, but then you'd ask me to write the quiz and provide the prize, wouldn't you? Not that that wouldn't be a reasonable response, but I'm doing so much volunteer work in other venues these days.

I'll keep thinking.

I'm flattered, but I can't help thinking that people would rather win a kitten or a rat.

My husband had a rat as a childhood pet. His mother didn't like rats, he says, so this rat was an honorary mouse.
