OK, nature detectives, it’s time to put your noggin to work and play Mystery Critter!
Good luck! And remember, no cheating!
- I am abundant this time of year;
- Even though I am found east of the Rockies, I am sure you have heard of me;
- Eggs over-winter to hatch in the spring; and
- I like to dine upon plant juice and have claws.
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 a favorite from childhood, and one most people will recognize. Grab a pair of binoculars or a magnifying glass (or both!), and go see what’s waiting for you outside your door.
