Thinking cap. Check. Child-like curiosity. Check. Desire to stump my readers. CHECK! Come on, kids. Let’s play Mystery Critter!
OK, my nature detectives — let’s hop to it! Good luck. And no cheating!
- I am primarily nocturnal;
- I am brown;
- I can be found in most of Canada and the US;
- I breed once a year; and
- My predators include the Gray Wolf and Bobcats.
So, what am I?
Make your guess, and then go here for the answer and more interesting facts. Did you get it right?! If not, no worries — you’ll have another chance next week!
Now, you might not get a chance to see one of these in the wild this weekend, but rest assured, there is plenty to be seen. Just step outside with open eyes and a quest for adventure. Grab the kids, and see what you can find. And let folks know about it! Join the Wildobs community, and report your wildlife observations.
And, just because he is the cutest critter I have seen in ages. I had to share this little fellow.
Until next week, my sluething friends!
