MAMMAL TUFT SIGNATURE DISPLAY (Animal Signatures® Clue Display).


ITEM #: T-22042
PRICE: $29.95

Resource Description
MAMMAL TUFT SIGNATURE DISPLAY (Animal Signatures® Clue Display). Acorn Naturalists. Just as we learn to identify the handwriting of others, we can learn to read signatures left by wildlife. This unique 6” x 8” glass-topped display provides real examples of these animal clues from wild areas and even parks and school grounds. With this display, students learn that cocklebur seeds in fur, or fur tufts on braches or wooden posts, indicate that a specific mammal has passed by. Stuck-together clumps of fur may indicate a kill site. Wool, along with field-collected cockleburs, twigs, and sticks are used to simulate the field appearance of these signatures. All samples have been hand collected. Ages 9–adult. #T-22042.

Additional information: (quoted from the label on the back of the display)

"Mammals often leave behind signatures in the form of fur tufts. If you encounter animal fur in the wild, you can sometimes tell which species it came from and sometimes why it is there. The “fur” in this display is unprocessed wool that has been assembled to replicate various fur scenarios. Occasionally, fur snags on branches or fence posts. Fur may catch burs or other seeds that the animal chews off due to the irritation, leaving clues such the cocklebur example in this display. Matted fur without seeds can indicate predation, such as the example in the lower right corner."
