“Teaching children about the natural world should be seen as one of the most important events in their lives.”
~ Thomas Berry, The Dream of Earth
Wow — we’ve been at this for 65 wildlife mysteries together — can you believe it?! This week, I am sending a special Mystery Critter shout out to my friend Michele @OCPlayParks’s kids, who love to play along! I hear they are great wildlife detectives.
OK, time to play Mystery Critter. So put on your thinking caps and let’s get to it! And remember — no cheating.
- I make my home in forests — the denser, the better
- Like many other critters, it’s my mating season right now
- I am solitary
- I am a good climber and swimmer
- I can be spotted mostly at night
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!
You might not get a chance to see me unless you are very lucky — but there are lots of other critters you can spot! Remember, when looking for wildlife, keep your eyes and ears open!
What critters can you spot in your neck of the woods? Be sure to tell us!
And don’t forget! Join the Wildobs community and share your wild adventures with the world.
