Soil Life Signature Display (Animal Signatures® Display Series)


Soil Life Signature Display (Animal Signatures® Display Series)

Just as we learn to identify the handwriting of others, we can learn to read “signatures” left behind by wildlife. By recognizing these animal clues, it is possible to conclude which animals are in the area. This unique, glass-topped display provides real examples of these clues, or signatures. Each sample is collected from the wild with careful regard to environmental impact, and assembled by Acorn Naturalists. With this display, discover the many clues that can be found on the surface of the soil in backyard or school gardens, including shed feathers, insect sheds, frass, earthworm castings, and seeds. Information about the samples shown is provided on the back, making this display perfect for educators. Our signature displays are recommended for ages 8 to adult.


Dimensions: 6" L x 8" W x ¾" D

Quoted from the label on the back of the display:

"A walk around any garden often reveals clues left by animals. Birds molt small feather (domestic feathers, upper left). Emerging insects cast sheds (beetle sheds, upper right). Hungry caterpillars leave frass, or dropping (far right) under leaves they have chewed through. Earthworms leave small hills of castings on the soil surface after digesting organic matter (lower right). Finally, you can often find seed remains left behind by feeding birds or deposited there by plants that have gone to seed (seed bits and shells, lower left)."
