Hi Katie, thanks for visiting the NANFA website. I will send your questions
to people on our list server and see if anyone can help you. You have
certainly asked a lot of questions, we will do our best to help you. As I
get messages, I will forward them to you. One suggestion that I would give
you is to contact your local Division of Wildlife and speak with some of the
biologists. I am sure that they can give you a bunch of information. Also,
for us to be able to help you better, which state do you live in? We might
have some members who have contacts that they can give to you. It would
also help if you told us a bit about what you know of this species and why
you picked it as a topic for your 8th grade project. Good luck!
