January #SuperSnap

This month’s #SuperSnap features a mother black bear (Ursus americanus) and her cub from Marathon County. Black bear cubs are born in mid-January with an average litter size of three to four cubs. However, litters of as many as six cubs have been reported, certainly enough to keep mom on her toes!

A huge thanks to Zooniverse and Snapshot WI volunteer Swamp-eye for the #SuperSnap nomination!

October #SuperSnap

This month’s #SuperSnap features a red fox (Vulpes vulpes) as it scurries around a snowy Racine County forest in search of a meal – which seems quite fitting with our first snow of the season!

As one of our resident species that doesn’t hibernate during Wisconsin’s frigid winters, a red fox will grow a long, thick fur coat to keep warm. A huge thanks to Zooniverse volunteers @bzeise and @cjpope for nominating this crimson critter!
