Searching for Animals

Sometimes, wild animals hide right in plain sight. In suburban or rural areas, look for small creatures hiding in the garden, near a pond, or in a wooded area. If possible, go out early in the morning. If you are really lucky you may spot a deer or larger animal.

In urban areas, look for creatures, like rabbits, toads, chipmunks, and snakes, in secluded natural ponds or parks. Think small; don't forget insects and spiders too.

Notice the animal's color and the way it moves. How do these things help it hide?
