I can't use sheet protectors because then the species information extends beyond the tabs/dividers.
There exists extra-large tab dividers that will extend past the edge of sheet protectors. They're pretty rare though; I found some a few years ago when I started doing Fossils, and bought around 60 of them (which I've basically just recycled ever since). If you're trying to find them, bring a ruler; the labeling isn't that great, so the best way to know what you're getting is to measure them (they'll be about an inch wider than the normal size).
Yeah its a major problem that really could use a commercially available solution. My teammates and I have started laser cutting our own dividers out of polypropylene sheets we bought on amazon and have had great results, but of course youll need a laser cutter...

No, although it's an interesting concept.

Invasive species has more plants than animals.

Invasive species has more plants than animals.
That's true, especially considering that native plants are less adaptable than native animals, because animals have problem-solving abilities and such. However, I am just taking a shot in the dark here and the real scientific answer may differ.

In the rules, i saw that there could include recordings of songs, does this refer to the sound that the animal makes?

Here is a great source that most states should be able to use.http://www.misin.msu.edu/facts/index.ph ... on=&habit=[/url]
I'm sorry I can't make it a link, but I promise that typing it out will be worth it! Clemson University also has information on several insects. Can anyone tell me a trick for memorizing scientific names? :?: Also, identifying live plant specimens. :ugeek:
