Animal, Plant, Mineral, or Man-Made: #6

Clue: Take your time, but be careful not to strain your neck while you examine this week’s mystery item!

Do you know what it is?

Submit your guess using the form below by the end of Friday, August 4.

The answer (and winner) will be revealed Monday, August 7.

Here are the rules:

One guess per person.

You do not have to be affiliated with MBARI to play, although every mystery image will be from either on or around MBARI’s campus.

Prizes will be mailed to US locations only.

The winning guess will be selected based on the specificity of the answer. For example, if the photo was a wheel of a car, sending in either “car” or “car wheel” would be correct, but the prize would go to the person who said “car wheel.” In the case of a tie between two answers, the first guess received will be selected.

The mystery image will be posted on Monday each week, and guesses will be accepted until Friday. Next Monday, the page will be updated to reveal the answer and the winner’s name.
