Greetings Nature Detectives! Can you believe it’s November, and the Holiday Season is upon us?!

But remember, just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you and the kids can get out there and play and explore nature! Dress is layers and keep moving, you’ll keep plenty warm. Besides, it’s a great excuse to make hot chocolate — to warm up after an outdoor adventure!

So, let’s get to our Mystery Critter. Put on your thinking caps and let’s get to it! And remember — no cheating. ;-)


  • I make my home in pine-oak forests and woodlands
  • I have a unique voice
  • I was once almost hunted to extinction
  • I am a fast runner
  • I am a polygamist

So, what am I?

Make your guess then go to eNature for the answer and more interesting facts.

Did you get it right?

If not, no worries. You will have another chance soon!

Remember, when looking for wildlife, keep your eyes and ears open! What critters can you spot in your neck of the woods this weekend? Be sure to tell us!

And don’t forget! Join the Wildobs community and share your wild adventures with the world.

See ya outside! ~ The Grass Stain Guru
