Help Us Name Our NEWEST Grizzly Gulch Resident, The Bobcat!

Do you recognize this bobcat? That’s because he has been popping up on our camera traps since 2021!!

Since he is such a familiar face, we thought it would be the perfect time to finally give him a name!

What do you think we should name him?!(Required)

You decided where to place our NEW Grizzly Gulch audio recorder!

Chris and Martin Kratt as Newscasters

We asked you where we should put our newest Grizzly Gulch audio recorder and the votes are in! This spring, we will be placing our NEW Grizzly Gulch audio recorder near a Red-tailed hawk’s nest!

The Red-tailed hawk is one of the largest birds of prey you’ll spot in North America, despite the largest females only weighing about 3 pounds! They are also the most widespread bird in North America and can be found in every state in the United States and in the south, through Mexico and into Central America.

A Red-tailed hawk’s diet typically consists of a wide variety of animals including chipmunks, groundhogs, squirrels, mice, rats, snakes, and other birds! Red-tailed hawks spend most of their hunt in the air before they surprise their prey by diving down and snatching them.

The Migratory Bird Act protects bird species like Red-tailed hawks from illegal catching, hunting, or killing. The IUCN has them listed as “Least Concern” with populations increasing!

How Fast Do You Think This Moose Is Running?

Check out this live footage of a male moose running on a trail at Grizzly Gulch!

Did you know moose can run at speed of up to 35 miles per hour?!

This frequently used game trail is no stranger to large animals including bears, wolves, coyotes, and even bobcats! It’s no wonder this large moose is trying to make his way through it in a hurry!

The moose of Grizzly Gulch LOVE to munch on the willow trees that have taken over a bit part of the forested landscape here, so there is no shortage of food for these giant creatures.

Build Your Own Terrarium!

Clean up your neighborhood for your fellow creatures!
Build Your Own Terrarium
  • Collect a large glass container with a lid. The larger the container, the more room your plants will have to flourish!
  • Add an inch of small pebbles or gravel to the bottom of the container
  • Add an inch or two of potting soil
  • Plant your plants, making sure there is enough room for each of them to fully grow. 
  • Add decorations such as plastic animal figures to your terrarium
  • Place the terrarium in an area with ample sunlight
  • Lightly water your mini habitat consistently and watch your plants come to life

Make sure to build your terrarium with an adult!
