Mystery Critter #8

I see you!

Happy Saturday, folks. And today happens to be National Trails Day — one more reason to celebrate nature and get outdoors! As with each Saturday here at TGSG, it’s time to play Mystery Critter.

So, put on your thinking caps and let’s see if you can solve this week’s mystery. By the way, today’s critter was picked by one of my Twitter friends, @MojoCulture. Thanks for the help, Michael! OK, let’s get to it, folks!


  • I range in color from brown to black, depending on where I live;
  • One of my sub-species is on the Endangered Species List;
  • I can be found throughout a large portion of North America;
  • My range is roughly 10 – 15 square miles; and
  • I am mainly solitary.

What am I? Make your guess, and then go here for the answer and more interesting facts. Did you get it right?! If not, no worries — you’ll have another chance next week!

This week’s Mystery Critter is a rare sight for most folks. Regardless, you will find plenty of wildlife near you — song birds, pollinators, small mammals, and amphibians. Grab the kids and go for a hike to see what you can see. And let folks know about it! Join the Wildobs community and report your wildlife observations.

Until next week, my nature detectives! Don’t forget to make time to unplug and #playoutdoors.
