Mystery Critter #70


Amber-colored Spectacles

Hello, my favorite nature detectives!

Well, today is National Get Outdoors Day, so you have extra inspiration to get outside and see what wild wonders you can find.  So put on your thinking caps and let’s get to it! And remember — no cheating. ;-)


  • I make my home in slow moving lakes and rivers
  • I have been called gregarious, yet shy (what a combo!)
  • I have cousins you may be familiar with
  • I dine on insects, crayfish and clams

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! Look high and low, and most importantly, enjoy yourself.

Nature is not a destination — it’s all around us, and beautiful in so many ways. Take the time to appreciate it, and all that it brings to your life.

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.

See ya outside! ~ The Grass Stain Guru
