Very informative. I learned that a rattlesnake grows a rib on it's rattler every time it sheds it's skin and they are learning NOT to give a warning rattle, as this has brought attention to them and results in certain death.

Fun, but too easy. I thought my grandchildren would be seeking out pics of poison ivy, mushrooms, wild garlic, etc. Plants to beware of and those to survive by. But they had fun nonetheless.

Fascinated by all that I didn't know! i.e 4ft deep is the sphagnum & pitcher plant (carnivorous).
