Insects and Spiders

alphabetical listing of insects and spiders

During the spring, summer and fall there’s one critter that you are bound to run into here at the Cross Conservation Area - a bug. The insects that live in this area are certainly our most numerous and diverse group of animals. Most of the insects or spiders you find here will fit into one of these eight categories.

This section is a work in progress. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Complete lists are coming soon.

Moose
Alces alces
Largest living deer in the world.  Reddish brown back, with a dark brown belly, and almost greyish legs.  They have a long head like a horse, and a large shoulder hump.  Their antlers are fused, so they look like shovels.
