Happy National Get Outdoors Day! It’s that time again — time to play Mystery Critter! Let’s have a little fun and put your wildlife knowledge to the test. So put on those thinking caps, my nature detectives, and see if you can solve this week’s mystery. Have fun — and no cheating!
- You could call me loud;
- I live near the water — lakes, rivers, and saltwater estuaries;
- You might say I am having a bad hair day;
- I can be found throughout southern Canada and most of the United States; and
- My diet is mainly fish, but I also eat mice, lizards, insects, and crabs.
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!
