At Regionals, my partner was playing with a Smilodon skull, and was pretending to snap its jaws at the team in front of us, who happened to be a rival school.

Yeh that was the same for me in Fossils(easy) and Dynamic Planet(hard). You just can never know. Well you can if the place uses the same test for the middle and high school competition.
