I find it very difficult for a person to sit still for a long period of time, especially when being attacked by mosquitoes. This past summer I was spending time with my family by sitting around a campfire and roasting marshmallows. The mosquitoes were very viscious, especially down by the lake. By the end of the evening, I had mosquito bites everywhere, even on my feet. I could barely sleep that night because of the mosquito bites.

Question 14: -a mink is a small animal
- Large cats are truly “scaredycats”
- Discovery channel - Quills, porcupine’s defense.
- Homeward Bound movie
- fast runner in track -Minnesota state bird
- Seems very ironic, opposite to what is expected.
- Winter in Minnesota = no bugs!
- Fear of West Nile and other disease? Poor Example: It is crazy to think that you are supposed to let them bite you and not scratch at them.

Better Example: The most shocking fact I learned from the survival quiz comes from question 14. The advice given says that when a person is stranded in the wild, the best option for numerous and hungry mosquitoes is to sit very still. Summers in Minnesota would not be complete without bugs and mosquitoes. Minnesotans know first hand how miserable even a few mosquito bites can be. I found myself itching and scratching at my mosquito bites all night long. Sitting very still while mosquitoes bite you may be the best survival advice when being attacked, but it would be much easier said than done. Before:
