Your personal field guide

Ever wonder what sort of interesting wildlife is lurking right in your own back yard? Well now its as easy as typing your zip code to find out! Just go to and see for yourself. I discovered 85 species of butterflies and 65 species of amphibians right here in my own area. Of course, take the zoning with a grain of salt, as it goes more by region than actual zip code...I'm actually somewhat south of the region highlighted on the map for my area code. If you know other local zip codes you might try checking them too, or use eNature's advanced search if you are looking for something specific and not finding it. You can even find bugs, seashells, and animal tracks in their database! All in all, a very nifty tool for you nature lovers out there.
