Want to win this skull* and necklace? Just answer some questions to help me with my book.

Here’s the deal: I recently came into some free time (read: lost my job) and I’d like to write a book based on this blog. It would be called something like Strange Biology: Anomalies of Animals, Bones, Mutants and Medicine. It will be a full-color, scientifically accurate book on Strange Biology, including but not limited to some of the most popular posts on this blog, as well as plenty of original content. Less gifs of course, but more text, more in-depth facts for you to learn and to help you become a cool person who can talk about weird things. I have been thinking about this book for a while, and I’ve been obsessed with all things strange and all things biological my whole life, so if you wanted a book on the weird phenomena in the science of life, I’m your author!

Here’s the thing: I studied journalism so I know how to write accurately, ethically, and clearly, but I know very little about publishing physical books in the digital age. So I’m asking for your help!

*Don’t like skulls? Opt for a copy of the book instead! 

All you have to do is answer the questions on this short, 7-question SurveyMonkey survey

Each message will get you three digital raffle tickets (meaning I put a number assigned to you in a random generator), and you can get one additional ticket by reblogging this post. Once I have 1/20th as many surveys as I do followers, then I’ll do the drawing. You do not need to like this post or follow me or promise to buy the book or anything to win, but you do need to live in the US to get the skull so I don’t have to worry about international trade of wildlife parts.

Thank you so much for your support! I really appreciate the time you’re taking to help me decide about this project, if it happens!

Here are some details on what I have decided for the book if you’re really interested:

Just a reminder that I’d love some feedback! Haven’t gotten much so far. Really it’s only 4 questions because the rest are optional.

You can tell a lot about the life an animal lived by looking at its skull. Big eye sockets point to a nocturnal lifestyle (big eyes harvest more light). Giant canine teeth indicate a taste for flesh. Lightweight bone riddled with air pockets is an adaptation for life on the wing. These features and many more are on display at a new exhibit, opening Friday at the California Academy of Sciences.

Visitors can see more than 640 skulls, from the 218-pound cranium of an African elephant, to the delicate skulls of tiny hummingbirds and shrews. If you go, you’re likely to see many of your favorite animals in a new light, from the surprisingly toothy hippopotamus to the surprisingly small platypus. Slow loris? Check. Anteater? You bet.

I’ve an Ocean between me and this exhibition, so if anyone of you is going there submit me some pics please!

Thanks L.

Skulls from the infamous Lions of Tsavo - two human-hungry African lions (Panthera leo nubica) responsible for killing and consuming around 30 workers of the Kenya-Uganda railway in 1898. A threat to the productivity (and, you know, safety) of the construction crew, the lions were shot and killed by Lt. Col. John Henry Patterson that year.
The Lions came to The Field Museum in 1924 after existing as living room rugs in Patterson’s house - taxidermists and conservators worked to remount the skins, which are still on display in the Hall of African Mammals.
