Dinosaur Hunters - Ankylosaurus
By Brian Love
  

1     Julia walked into Brian's room as he was packing his bag and putting on his dinosaur-hunting hat.
 
2     "What's today's mission?" she asked.
 
3     "You know the rules," Brian smiled.
 
4     "Aw, not again," she whined. "It's your turn to guess!"
 
5     "Wrong," Brian said. "You were in charge last time."
 
6     "Fine," she said. "Let's get this over with. I want to go outside and play kickball."
 
7     Brian smiled again and pulled out a notebook covered in a weird green material. He flipped through the notebook until he found just the right page.
 
8     "Remember," he said, "it only took me six clues to figure out which dinosaur we were hunting last time."
 
9     "Can we please just start?" she asked, rolling her eyes.
 
10     "Clue #1- Its name means "fused lizard," Brian said.
 
11     "Great, that's no help at all," Julia moaned.
 
12     "Fine, here's Clue #2- It lived in the Cretaceous (kri ta shus) Period," he said with a grin.
 
13     "That helps a bit," she smiled, playing with the end of her long blonde hair. "Keep going."
