Depending on where you live you can get all sorts of little critters in your backyard. Some might be fun to watch as they play in the backyard. Others may not be as enjoyable as they are getting into your trash and making a mess. Do you have a favorite backyard critter? What are some of those backyard critters that you could get in your backyard? Carve Me A Bear! Chainsaw Carvings explores them below.
While raccoons may look adorable with their cute little faces that look like they have a black mask around their eyes. They often can get into your trash cans to get your old food. They are very skillful at stealing food from garbage cans. They have very nimble paws that can lift the lids off trash cans or climb trees to get fruit and nuts. If you are not familiar with raccoons they live in woods, suburbs, parks, wetlands, and even cities. They live anywhere they can find food, water, and shelter.
Squirrels can be fun little animals. You can recognize a squirrel by its brown fur and bushy tail. They grow to be about 15 to 20 inches and then their tail is about an extra 6 to 9 inches. These tiny little animals live all over the world. You may have to see them in a tree, on the fence, or running across the road. They store food for the winter so you may see them collecting food. They mainly eat seeds, nuts, and fruits, but sometimes small insects or small animals.
Chipmunks have often been mistaken for squirrels, but chipmunks don’t have bushy tails and they have a long stripe on their back. They are mainly found in North America. When you see chipmunks you may notice that they can store a lot of food in their cheeks. This is because they have internal cheek pouches for transporting food. Chipmunks also hibernate and live in forests, mountains, deserts, and plains and like to live alone in holes.
Possums are nocturnal, but you may be able to see them during the day especially in the winter when food is scarce. They are in the marsupials family, which means they have a pouch to carry their young. They are the only animals in North America that have pouches. Opossums are solitary animals and you will most likely see them by themselves. They are good climbers and good swimmers but they like to stay on the ground. When an possum feels threatened, it may growl, hiss, and show its teeth but it will also “play possum” which means it may play dead.
