you are correct! :)

if Hercules Beetle comes back I say we give him a turn right off the bat, for now congrats its your turn

Yay! :) I have an idea, I'll just pm Hercules Beetle. If he wants to post one he can go right ahead and if not I'll bring up a new one! :)

unfortunately I can't find much down to the species level, but I'm going to have to say the family is Psychrolutidae and genus is Cottonculus or possibly Psychrolutes

now it'll have to be up to someone else to determine the species

No, but you're definitely looking in the right direction (i.e. the animal in the picture is an island species)  :)

@Badger, would it have a black chin if we could see it? If so: Rowettia goughensis?

 8) Hmm. I think this is tricky because it is an amphibian in its larval form, right? So, I'm thinking frog or toad. Is that on the right track? Do you know the length of the scale bar?

No, it's a type of fish, and I don't know the length of the scale bar. If it helps, here is a blurry image of a live specimen:

Oh, I convinced myself that you were trying to trick us.  :))

In that case, I don't know. Send in the fish experts! @sbell
