Here's the deal. The FIRST EMAIL BY TIME/DATE with ALL the correct answers gets a copy of my book, "Cat-head Biscuits and Squirrel Stew". If no one gets ALL the answers, then the best score wins. Cut off will be at MIDNIGHT, TUESDAY, Jan 4 EDT.

1. Who's considered the "Father of Modern Taxidermy"?

2. What NON-taxidermist deserves the most credit for advancing the taxidermy industry and why?

3. What was arsenic used for?

5. What is the name of the chemical KMN04 and what is it used for?

6. Before RTV and after plaster, what medium was used to make quick molds?

7. Before selling Balmex as an injectable preservative, what was it used for?

14. What color is a bison's tongue?

15. What is the correct name for a "shellcracker" and where does it get it's name from?

16. A largemouth bass, really isn't either. What is it?
