Congratulations! Your continuous effort and dedication has finally paid
off. After months on your scientific expedition, you have just discovered a
new living organism! You are the talk of the scientific world and this is
sure to be one of the greatest evolutionary breakthroughs of the century!
The Bronx Zoo board of directors has asked you to submit and present your
findings at the upcoming International Scientist Conference, on June 4th.
It is at this conference where they will determine whether your new species
will be included in the forthcoming book, D3: The Definitive Discoveries of
Your task is to prepare a written, in-depth and informative, description of
your creature, including its classification, its interactions within its
habitat, the role it plays in its ecosystem, and an explanation of the
adaptations it possesses. We also need to be sure to include a detailed and
labeled, visual representation of this remarkable creature. Remember, these
scientists are very hard to please, so it is important that you do your very
best to impress the board.
Good luck! If all goes well, you may very well find yourself ranked right
up there with the greats, like Einstein, Darwin, and Newton.
