This is not an entry because I already have the book. Just a comment that this is a terrific prize - the book is superb, with a gripping text and simply fantastic photos. Great job, Martin! And super production from Vertebrate Publishing.

All I wanted to do was see the Dinosaurs at the front gate and now I've paid £12 for this

How much further to the wet bit?

Now I know what the air in the cylinder feels like.

It's not mud on the cylinder. It's recently been surgically removed from where the previous dive porter shoved it!  ::)

For years I always just assumed I was carrying your bottles for diving. But this explains the high pitched voice, lack of flippers and constant vacant look...

Have you thought about seeking help?
