De Coriario et Urso


I'm using some new crossword puzzle software (online, fast, easy) to create new puzzles to go with the new Aesop's fables I'm posting at

Today's fable at Latin Via Fables is De Coriario emente pellem ursi a venatore nondum capti. You can visit the Latin Via Fables page for this fable to see the Latin text, English translation and some grammar help.

anhelitus, antrum, arbor, auris, canis, coriarius, deinceps, emere, fera, humus, latere, naris, pellis, saevire, silva, spirare, surgere, ursus, venator, vendere
