Mystery Critter #31

I see you!

Who’s ready for another round of Mystery Critter?! Thanks to all of you who have written in to tell me about you and your kids playing my little guessing game each week!

So, let’s get to it. Put on those thinking caps — and remember, no cheating! ;-)


  • I can be found in pine-oak forests and oak woodlands
  • Historically, I was considered stupid and cowardly by some Native American tribes, who refused to eat me for fear of developing these traits. (Lucky me!)
  • I am a fast runner
  • I was almost hunted to extinction in the 19th century
  • I am polygamous

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

You may have been lucky enough to see one of these Mystery Critters before — or at least heard one. Take a hike this weekend and check out the wild in your world. Wildlife is everywhere — you just need to take the time to look!

And don’t forget to let everyone know 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.
