Oh how I love a bit of mystery!
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 tall
- I am shaggy
- I am surprisingly quick on my feet
- My pregnancy lasts as long as a humans
- I have a long history on the American landscape
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 soon!
Now, you probably won’t get a chance to see one of these 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.
Until next time, my nature detectives! Don’t forget to #playoutdoors.
