Yay, Gregg B! You are partially correct in that the answer is the short-nosed echidna and the long-nosed echnida. Togeraptor is in a class all by herself.

Edit: I mean Yay, Jarrod! You are partially correct enough to ask the next question--the same thing you did to me!

Yay - I'm legitimate!

I wouldn't have gotten it, even partially, if not for Gregg B's egg-laying prompt - Gregg B, do you want to have a crack at a question?  I'll start trawling for trivia question to ask in case you don't [Image Can Not Be Found]

First I thought you were saying that you had to earn that pressure [Image Can Not Be Found]

Ok, back to astronomy - What is the name given to the collective bodies of (presumably) ice that lie at the borders of our solar system?

Is that the Kuiper (Kuyper?) belt?

@xtal - haha, no [Image Can Not Be Found]

Spike, you're very, very, very close.  This 'thing' is bigger, and a bit further out - supposedly marks the border of our solar system's gravity.

Van Allen (sp) belt?  Or is that an old name for something else.  Astronomy ain't my long suit.

Steerpike thinks correct!

I think the Van Allen belt is the belt of magnetic strips that surround the Earth, and incidentally stop us from frying in radiation.

What say you quizzically now, Steerpike?

Darn! I was sure it was the "if I have another belt I'll fall right out of the solar system" belt.

(I have often had a belt like that.)

Hey Raj, welcome to the party!

Thank you, Jarrod.

Okay, here goes:

Mervyn Peake, author of the novels from which yours truly takes his name, was a talented illustrator as well as a novelist and poet. Alongside illustrations for books like Alice in Wonderland and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, shortly after WWII he produced some illustrations that most people don't realize were his. You've all almost certainly seen these pictures in school. What were these drawings of?
