The eastern box turtle has a hinged plastron, or underside of the shell, so it can enclose its head and legs. It also can eat poisonous mushrooms, so a turtle snack could be deadly. But it may need your help to cross the road. Photo by Ryan Hagerty/USFWS

Photographer Heather Rees says, “I LOVE exploring at Bombay Hook [National Wildlife Refuge] for little creatures like this tiny jumping spider.” As you would expect after seeing those big eyes, these spiders have excellent vision. Photo by Heather Rees ()

Every time this Sitka black-tailed deer on Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge sees this, it thinks, “Why did he take a photo of me with food hanging out of my mouth?” This herbivore species, related to mule deer, was introduced to Kodiak in 1924. Photo by Steve Hillebrand/USFWS

You've been home together for more than a week. You’ve taken all the virtual museum, zoo, and aquarium tours you can handle. It’s time to get real… as in doing some real science in your backyard or local open space

It may still be a little chilly where you live, but before you know it you’ll be seeing birds building nests in gutters, kitchen fan vents, or on a pallet as robins did. Knowing when and where local birds assemble nests can be a great way to help them.

This rough green snake is all ready for St. Patrick’s Day. When hanging out in forested habitat as it commonly does, this snake is usually quite hard to see. It uses that to its advantage when hunting its meals—insects. Photo by USFWS

Who doesn’t need a little wonder to start the week? When burrowing owls feel threatened (like these owls), they hiss. So while the owls look surprised, they are actually defending themselves. Photo by Katie McVey/USFWS
