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

Never heard of the animals Lemming & Lamprey before. I'm surprised Loon is so low though.

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!

I don't think lynxes are a type of bobcat. Distinct species.

No, bobcats are a type of lynx. Their taxonomic name is Lynx Rufus.

The crustacean fished for in Maine is actually dark blue until cooked, when it turns red. The only red lobsters found in any numbers are Cape Lobsters, found in the waters off South Africa. As the LobstersAnywhere site states: "The Cape Lobster, found in the seas around South Africa, and in fact only recently included in the Nephropidae family, is actually the only lobster variety that is red whilst alive." [Sure that's pedantic, but this is a trivia site, isn't it?]

It is a good comment. Most people think lobsters are red. I knew they werent, but didnt know there was actually one species that was,. I did know some lobsters are two-toned, split down the middle, due to chimera, one side can be male other half female. Rare but extraordinairy
