My, what big teeth you have...

Wyatt Blackman, Quarterway Elementary School student, dives in for a close inspection of a cougar’s sharp teeth as Steve Gordon, biologist, holds a cougar skin and head to show Blackman’s Grade 1 classmates. Gordon was at the school in December using skulls and skins to demonstrate wild animals’ physical adaptations to their environments and food sources. The show-and-tell visit was part of Science World’s program Scientists and Innovators in the Schools. - Chris Bush photo
