    I'll start the ball rolling. The first nine, in order, are:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Millepede
    Bull Moose
    Penguin
    Tiger Shark
    Fire Ant
    Pit Viper
    Hyena
    Tiger Seal
    Tasmanian Devil</font color=yellow></span hi>
    <font color=blue><font face="Script MT Bold"><big>Rob</big></font face=script></font color=blue>

    10. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>tree frog</font color=yellow></span hi>
    11. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>trapdoor spider</font color=yellow></span hi>
    17. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>large doe</font color=yellow></span hi> ???

    For question 18 I can get a possible answer if 1 letter was changed, was there an error or should I keep on looking
    18. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>vampire bat</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Word jumble

    As thanks for bandido's word puzzles, here's twenty names of living creatures with the letters jumbled together. The number of "words" in each case isn't necessarily the number of words in the name. I figure the other people on the boards who make up puzzles should have a chance to solve them, too.

    1. peel dilim
    2. some loulb
    3. gupi nen
    4. rakit hergs
    5. retinaf
    6. vetripip
    7. yaneh
    8. slatgieer
    9. delvian mastian
    10. fere grot
    11. proedid rot spar
    12. lisuranq tiger
    13. boshe rashocre
    14. lageeb
    15. oga wulfine
    16. tolliw erew
    17. gadeelra (corrected)
    18. trampibave (corrected)
    19. dolpoe
    20. itsoetor

    You're right on 18 about the critter.
    I need to fix both 17 and 18 - I was checking them when someone came in and grabbed me for something else
    .
    17 should be: gadeelra

    Although, "large doe" does work for what it was.

    17. I don't think <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow> Red Algae </font color=yellow></span hi> is much of an animal!

    You're right.

    Of course, that's why I used "living creature".

    I couldn't slow down anyone on the board even with my bad spellings. WOPR people are just too sharp.
