Hallowe'en turns educational - free masks to download. Answered

Feel like mixing Hallowe'en fun and science?

There's a new website about the five kingdoms of life, with a Hallowe'en theme and masks you can download and make. There's a bat, bacteria, fungi, a pumpkin and more on the way.

You can imagine the doorstep scene:

"And what have you come as, Billy?"

Oh, I'm a Basidiomycota, Mrs Ponderosa, a genus of club-fungus that includes both edible and highly toxic species.

The link I gave in the OP has been updated. I've changed it in the text, and here it is as well: http://www.planet-science.com/outthere/lifemasks/

Well worth a look, even if you don't plan to make the masks.

. Klugman did a great job, and I enjoyed the show, but Matthau will always be THE Oscar to me. Kinda of like how Johnny Weissmuller comes to mind when someone mentions Tarzan.

Yeah Walter Matthau was the perfect, lovable curmudgeon. :-) I just happen to like the TV show's Felix better :-)

Yes, I can hear the little imps now: I am a Spirochaetes, a few of them cause serious diseases in humans. Syphilis and Lyme Disease, both caused by spirochaetes, can be deadly if not treated.
