    Here's some more fun to go with the guess the fossil competition!
    Try and guess the *Genus* of the animal pictured geek
    Here's the first 3, with increasing difficulty

    The first two are 5 minutes jobs, and the third shouldn't take more than 20-30 mins Smile

    The third will be rather tricky! They are all mammals, the first two are famous for their horns (the second is probably a little less well known). The third is hornless, very famous thanks to a certain tv program, but has since been renamed

    Really? I think the new one should be a little easier than the 3rd as the colours are more differentiable- start by group similar pieces by colour and the edge pieces etc, that's the trick to a good start Smile
    Any idea what the 4th one is?

    Good luck with the 4th geek

    I'm probably going to be posting a lot of these (probably a few onto the Ukafh Fb page as well), as I love jigsaws but having not touched a real one in years these are the best I can get.. Stay tuned! I'll try to do ones without too much white (clashes with the background of the website) and with some nice palaeoart Smile
