... Dr. Verrelli wanted us to find three species and look at clues in the osseous morphology as an indication of behaviour. I chose something in the Aves genera, a baboon, and a human.

... 2-Star roadside motel, because this hotel is part of a 50-acre casino complex, replicating traditional Italian hilltop villages, with a large array of interesting shops and open-air restaurants around every corner.
