Yesterday we checked the traps we set Tuesday. Dr. Buesching said we probably wouldn't find any animals in the morning because it was cold over night and the animals would just stay burrowed under ground for warmth. When we went to check our traps, we were surprised to find that three of the doors were closed. What do you think it means if the trap door is closed? You're right, it means that something is probably inside. The traps have food and bedding We eagerly looked in all the traps, but they were all false alarms. There is one animal that can get into the traps and then get out again. It's a shrew. Why do you think the scientists would allow shrews to escape? Hint: Think about what animals need to survive and what we put into the traps.
