Mystery #22


Calling All Detectives!
Can you solve a Mystery?

Guess who I am using the clues below. I could be a plant, animal, bird, tree, insect, arachnid (spiders), or amphibian found in Colorado. (Look for the answer in next month’s newsletter as well as a new mystery!)

Through the grassy forest ahead of me I go in search of food.

I can easily lift whatever crumb or prey I find.

Using my six legs and strong jaws (called mandibles), I carry my food back to the colony to share with the other females.

Everyone in the family has their own special job: looking for food, constructing tunnels for our home, protecting the hill, or even being the queen!

Who am I???
