Mysteries of Nature: Can you Twidentify?

July 16, 2014

You may see the staff and volunteers of the Naturalist Center wearing these silly buttons and wonder…”What are those crazy nature nerds up to now?” Well, we love answering questions from visitors and helping them identify plants, animals, insects, rocks and fossils.  And now there’s a new way to contact us with your questions via Twitter.

If you have a nature-related question or a photo you would like to share with us, post on Twitter #AskNatCenter.  We will continue to have our “Ask a Naturalist” link on the Museum’s website where you can email us.  Over the past several years,  we’ve gotten some strange and wonderful photos of objects or creatures that need identification.  In addition to the more common spider, snake and bird questions, we occasionally get a real head-scratcher—an object that doesn’t look like anything we’ve ever seen before.  Luckily, our team of expert curators and research scientists can almost always come up with an answer.  Here are three of the strangest photos we’ve received so far.  Can you identify what they are?  We know the answers and will post them on Twitter (@NatSciLearn) in the near future or visit the Naturalist Center and we’ll tell you.  Good Luck and be sure to follow us on Twitter @NatSciLearn!
