Trivia Answer!

In the previous issue, you were all asked: "What is the only animal that has an incomplete mediastinum, allowing both of its lungs to share a single cavity?" There were a lot of great guesses and a few of you got it right! The answer is....

The American Bison! It is believed that this is how the Native Americans were able to so effectively hunt them as one arrow to the chest would incapacitate them. It is very unfortunate anatomy!

Sarah Myers from Kansas State University was the student to answer it first. Congratulations!
