During Week 3, we noticed changes to the pumpkin. Students guessed that an animal had scratched it. Which animal? Guesses included a lion, tiger, cheetah, squirrel, dog, cat, mouse, raccoon, or bear.
This time, we talked about finding an expert to help answer the question of what scratched the pumpkin. We sent an email to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. An official from the Wildlife Division informed us that a native Connecticut gray squirrel had gnawed on our pumpkin.
