Win A Giant Plush Giant Isopod!

5189-owW3eLWhat your life needs right now is a larger-than-life plush Giant Isopod.

A common visitor to food falls, Giant Isopods are scavengers of the deep.  The DSN infatuation for this ginormous Roly-Poly is rivaled only by our beloved giant squid.

DSN’s Rick Macpherson has generously donated a plush Giant Isopod to the #Scifund wood fall project. This Giant Isopod plush is 2-3 times life-size, cushy as a pillow, and, of course, scientifically accurate.

Rick and I will randomly select a donor to my #Scifund project to receive the Giant Isopod.  There’s only one catch.  The project must be 100% funded. If we are unable to reach our $4000, no donations will be collected and no Giant Isopod will be awarded. Currently, we’re almost half way to our goal, so encourage your friend’s to donate as well.

Make a donation of any amount to the #Scifund wood fall project today and enter to win!

Already donated? No worries, you’ll automatically be entered to win!

Thanks so much for supporting the wood fall project.
