Geocache Description:

***CACHE IS NOT AT LISTED COORDINATES***

This is a tricky little puzzle cache about

Amphibians & Reptiles.



Have you ever been walking down a trail or path to a cache and saw a creepy crawly and wondered what it was?

Here's your chance to learn a few of the common ones!!


Many people might not know that I actually have a degree in Parks and Natural Resources.
I decided I that I should place a cache with the knowledge I learned while studying for my degree.

All of the amphibians and reptiles below can be found in Iowa and you may have seen before but just didn't know what they were.



For this puzzle, there WILL be some tricky ones. You will need to use the FULL name of the amphibian or reptile and not just "frog" or "turtle".
