Anyone up for some trivia about some creepy crawlies? All questions are themed around "bug" stuff. (I have some spider stuff in there as well...yes I know they're not technically bugs. Anything that needs to be sprayed ferociously with Raid though I consider a bug)
When done please send a PM to Faiona titled "Bug Trivia". Everyone that sends in the correct answers will get put into a random drawing for a special avatar outfit...that revolves around this theme! Lol
Edit: Forgot to put in to please keep the answers to yourself, do not share on the forums or chat/messaging system at all on the site. Anyone found doing so will be disqualified.
This will go tomorrow until 5PM Sylestia time.

Here are the answers...I accept a couple of different ones on some of the questions...since I should have been more specific.

7. Greenbottle Blue Tarantula
8. Black Widow or Redback Spider...I was looking for Black Widow, but I should have specified where on the abdomen. So I accepted both.
9. Dragonflies was the answer I was looking for...but accept a variety of other flying bugs that eat mosquitoes as well.
