Quiz night Tuesday is back again.
Tonight's question is about a foot and there are two parts to the question. And by the way you can click on the picture to make it bigger.
So, part one:
What species does this foot belong to?
And, part two:
What is special about this foot?
Good luck. I will post all the answers tomorrow night as I have switched on the comments approval function so no-one gives it away too soon.

And the answer is:
The foot in the picture above belongs to this amazing Nightjar I was lucky enough to see in Portugal this year.
What is special about this foot is the comb you can see on the middle toe. The Nightjar uses this comb to remove any debris from the whiskers you can see round the beak. The whiskers are used to funnel food into the mouth and help protect it's eyes. Isn't evolution brilliant!
Well done to Professor David Norman for getting the answer totally right.
