Each set of initials is worth four points for a maximum of 100 points. See how you can do. Even if you do poorly, your minimum score is likely to be 40 points, few but the most observant (hint) will have a perfect score of 100.

      aviannovice - I would stump you with BTA (Beware The Alligators) but that wouldn't be fair, for as far as I know there is no such abbreviation. You know the three letters monikers all right. Have a great day.
