[UPDATE: This contest is closed and the winner has been notified. The correct answer was E. Tom Skerritt.]

Here's the way to kick off your week: The chance to win a pair of tickets to see the mighty Mastodon. The Atlanta band, whenever its members are not casually leaning against trees, puts on a fierce, heavy show, which they'll be doing this Saturday, November 5, at the Roseland. To make it even sweeter, Dillinger Escape Plan and Red Fang are also on the bill.

All you need to do in order to win is send me an email with "Mastodon" in the subject line, and include your first and last name in the email. And in order to make it a little challenging, you must correctly answer this question:

The extinct mastodon most closely resembles which currently living animal?

A. Duck-billed platypus
B. Elephant
C. Great white shark
D. Fuzzy bunny

Include the answer in your email. Good luck! This contest closes Wednesday at 9 am.
