It has been almost two months since the last ID Challenge and more than a month since the last challenge of any kind, thus it’s high time we kick off BitB Challenge Session #3. This is a straight up identification challenge: 2 pts each for order (a gimme!), family, genus, and species. Bonus points will be awarded for additional relevant information, but I’m going to be somewhat more selective about what I award such points for rather than just anything that happens not to be incorrect—my discretion.
Standard challenge rules apply, including moderated comments to give everyone a chance to participate. However, starting this session there’s a twist—if multiple people answer correctly, those who submit their answers earlier get bonus points over those they beat to the punch. The actual number of points will depend on how many correct answers there are, but I’m hoping it adds a bit of competitive urgency to the game. We’ll see if it works.
