Read the scripture references and fill in the blanks. Then find each animal in the letter square by reading forward, backward, down, up, and diagonally. Every word has at least one letter that is not within another word. The remaining letters will spell out the name of another animal mentioned in the Book of Mormon. What is it and what is the reference for it? (Use the Index.)
