The Colonel's Poolazoid Puzzle
Here's a little puzzle with pieces all the same shape.
- Download it in Portable Document Format (P.D.F.) here:
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader or some other program
that can read a P.D.F. file.
- Print it in color, double-sided, on card stock.
If you have none, paper will do.
If you cannot print double-sided, just print the first page.
- Cut out the ten pieces.
- Fit the pieces together, flipping them if necessary, to form a triangle.
A few years after I discovered this puzzle, I found the dissection
in Dr. Karl Scherer's book
Puzzling Journey to the Reptiles and Related Animals,
published in 1994!
