I didn't know where to post this, but yesterday I found this guy and an accompanying book on the Campus bookshop, in the sale at half price. It was £3.99 which is just shy of $7! Good buy I thought, so this little guy will find a new home on my car parcel shelf beside Cthulhu and Nyarlathotep! THe book's aimed at wee kids, but the info in it's really quite good, hinting at their chemoreceptors on their suckers and stuff! I'm sure my nephew will enjoy having a read of it, anyway!! I did :biggrin2:

It's by the Smithsonian Institution!

Oh yeah! Totally! With me it's just anything zoological, really. Got a book by dr Robert Bakker this Christmas... but then I did suggest strongly to them that book!
I still like getting the "Broons" or "Oor Wullie" book every Christmas as well!
