SNTC is back again with it’s special Guide to Summer…


There are all kinds of animals around in the summer! They walk, they crawl, they fly! Here are only a very few creatures you might come across in your summer adventures…



Hi there! I’m a raccoon. I eat everything. I like to tip over your garbage cans at night and eat your pets’ food. I look adorable to you until you realize I just completely ruined your garden and injured your cat. I wash my hands before I eat, but I’ll always leave tiny little handprints all over whatever means most to you. Sweet!


Oh no they are coming

Sure there are birds in winter, but those birds are LAME. Summer birds have all the fun, from the red-wing blackbirds to swoop at your head to the bluejay that sounds like it’s angry and has a sore throat all the time to the robins that are actually pretty chill most of the time. Now the land is flooded with birds, singing in the morning, pooping on your car, and fighting with each other for your birdseed. Woohoo! You can go birdwatching now, in the summer. You can learn all the different songs of all the different birds and then lie awake at night, unable to stop yourself from picking out the songs, unable to stop yourself from naming them all, unable to stop hearing, and the clock ticks on and on, and on. Radical!



Hey! We’re squirrels. Some kinds of squirrels hibernate all winter, but regardless of whether we’re around all year, the summer is when we get to really party. Remember the potted plants you took such agonizing care of all through the cold months to display on your porch? It’s gonna be kicking rad when we tear them to bits looking for acorns we couldn’t possibly have buried there. We’re cute and twitchy and we have big fluffy tails! All right!



Hello world! The skunks have awakened and are out and about in the summer. Don’t worry if you never see a skunk in the wild this summer, or any summer. It’s a well-documented fact that skunks only exist to die, unwitnessed, by the roadside and smell terrible for months afterward, even after the animal itself is missing. Fist pump!

There are so many animals in the summer, they’re impossible to name in just one post! Go crazy looking for more animals! Summer is ripe with creatures for your eyes to pluck from the green scenery! I have no idea what I’m saying!

    Wow! That racoon is one angry guy or girl! You never see racoons like that-usually they are all cute and fuzzy-looking!
    That birds photo looked like a fingerprint! Neat photos!

  3. […] image of the laughing (?) raccoon is from (appropriately enough) SayNoToCrack, Anita Bath’s original clean humor website.  She […]

    Enjoyed this website–daughter and I traded off reading about the animals. Pictures were great. Can’t wait until the next installment.
