Mystery Critter #11

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

~Lao Tzu

I see you!

Happy Saturday, everybody.  That means only one thing  here at The Grass Stain Guruit’s time to play Mystery Critter! Let’s have a little fun. Read the clues below and then make your guess. This is a great way to introduce kids to the wonders of wildlife and help get them excited to explore the natural world.

OK my favorite detectives, let’s get down to it. Put on those thinking caps and let’s play. And remember — no cheating!


  • You will find me in wooded areas and forests;
  • I feast on the leaves of shrubs and trees (hazelnuts are one of my favorites);
  • I lay eggs;
  • I am hard to spot; and
  • Birds are my main predator.

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 Mystery Critter is good at hiding from you, but that makes it all the more fun to try and find. Even if you don’t spot one of these, I have no doubt you will find all sorts of wildlife and natural wonders near you. Get out there and see what you can find!

Don’t forget to let folks know about what you see! Join the Wildobs community and report your wildlife observations. It’s a great way to keep track of your wild adventures and share info with others.

I’m off to find this week’s Mystery Critter. He can’t hide from me for long. (OK, he can — but it will still be fun to look!)
