Take the skull challenge...
Can you name the wetland animal that matches each skull?
The relative sizes are shown. The largest is 7 3/4" long, and the smallest is 2 3/8" long.
A. hint: omnivore (eats a wide variety of animals and plants). Not aquatic, but often feeds along the shores of ponds and streams.
B. hint: herbivore (eats plants); round tail. Very aquatic.
C. hint: mostly a carnivore (eats animals). Not aquatic, but travels along shorelines.
D. hint: omnivore (eats a variety of animals and plants). This animal is not a wetland species, but might be found along the shore at times.
E. hint: carnivore (eats animals). Very aquatic.
F. hint: herbivore (eats plants), flat tail. Very aquatic. This is the only one of the six skulls which does not occur in Cape Cod and SE Massachusetts--but it is common elsewhere. Bonus points if you can come up with a good answer for why it's not found in Cape Cod!
