Unknown Spider and Mysterious Tracks

It is time for Nature Study Tuesday and we have been having some fun.

Here is a spider that daddy and the kids found outside the back door. Does anyone know what kind it is? How do I find out what kind of spider this is?



Daddy and the boys found these mysterious tracks in our pathway this week. These tracks were found first thing in the morning. Keep in mind we live in the city. Does anyone know what animal the tracks could be to?

What new and exciting things are you discovering in your nature studies this week?

Please let us know if you know what kind of spider that is.

Please also let us know if you have any idea who or what made those tracks through our pathway.
