Wednesday Word of the Week

I’m reading a fabulous book by Lincoln Child called Full Wolf Moon.  He’s one of my favorite authors, check it out.

Anyway, one of the words I came across is:

Chitinous – a nitrogen-containing polysaccharide, related chemically to cellulose, that forms a semitransparent horny substance and is a principal constituent of the exoskeleton, or outer covering, of insects, crustaceans, and arachnids.
