Mystery Critter #3

The goddesses and their cousin hunt for the Mystery Critterby Bethe Almeras, The Grass Stain Guru

That’s right — it’s time to play nature detectives! Did you solve last week’s Mystery Critter? Today’s Mystery Critter was selected by a 6 year old nature enthusiast in New York. Thanks for the help, my junior naturalist friend!

So, put on your thinking caps and let’s get to it. There’s a mystery to be solved!


  • I am brown;
  • I can be found in most parts of North America;
  • I live in forest habitats, along streams and lakes;
  • Females produce one young per year; and
  • I play a very important role for humans, although many might not know it.

So, what am I? Make your guess, and then click here for the answer.

Grab a pair of binoculars and go look for wildlife in your community. You might be very surprised at what you can find!

    I’ve now become obsessed trying to figure this out. I DID come up with an answer……..for each clue. Then I realized I needed to COMBINE the clues. For example, “I am brown.” UPS is brown…UPS is not a critter.

    I have dedicated my entire weekend to figuring this out.
