Mystery Critter #71

I see no ships

Hello, my favorite nature detectives!

My good friend and nature-lover, Carole Brown, hinted that it is time for another Mystery Critter. And who am I to disappoint a friend?

What can I tell you — it’s time 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. ;-)


  • My habitat is lakes and rivers (forested)
  • John Muir was a fan of mine, and even wrote about me
  • I am a great diver
  • Some call me heavy (Um, not very nice!)
  • You might hear me before you see me…

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
