Ahhh, I wrote "leming" with one M. It didn't take so I didn't even try another spelling. :(

The name of the scientific order that includes iguanas and geckos is actually 'squamata' not "lizard"

Lizards are actually a suborder, not an order. My bad. Changed it to "type", which is nice and generic.

Not so rare. They use them to improve blood flow to skin grafts and reattachment surgeries.

Yeah, and some people actually use maggots to clean a wound! They just let the maggots crawl around in the wound and the maggots will emit a secretion that will help get rid of all the dead and infected tissue, which lets an open wound close, which helps it heal faster! Pretty cool, huh?

They actually eat the dead tissue too.

Used in combat when medical attention was not immediately available. If in a stationary position, one could fight while the maggots did their work.

Never seen Canadian coins, so I didn't guess loon. I think several Europeans have the same experience.

Yep. The $1 coins are called Loonies. The $2 coins are then called Toonies. Silly Canadians.

I only know it because it the names ^ mentioned above; I'm not Canadian either. But not too many birds start with "L", at least suborders/species/groups of them. After guessing, say, "lark," and....just kidding, I can't think of any others....anyway..."loon" would be one of the others I would guess. (What other birds start with "L"?? I know there are some!)

Since the clue specifically mentions Maine, I think "lobsta" should be an acceptable spelling!
