The early spring rains have finally stopped. The forest floor is alive with the sounds of new life—including the tiny whine of baby Red Foxes! Vixen has given birth to a litter of heathy kits. They grow fast, starting to eat solid foods after four weeks. After one hunt, bringing home fresh rabbits, Red Fox is puzzled that his kits will not eat them. Despite nudging the rabbits closer towards the kits, they have no interest in eating rabbits. Determined to have his children eat well, the Red Fox travels back out to hunt. Perhaps his kits are hungry for a different animal… Try looking for Fowler’s Toad
First search diligently to reveal both Vegetation cards. Then catch Fowler’s Toad before Mountain Lion completes one cycle around the Forest Floor. You still lose if the Mountain Lion catches you.
Toads are difficult to find because of their ability to camouflage. Red Fox must search carefully and sneak up on Fowler’s Toad.
Reveal both Vegetation cards first (because that is most likely where Fowler’s Toad is hiding), then find and catch Fowler’s Toad. Otherwise, Fowler’s Toad will sense your presence and easily escape your clutches.
If you find Fowler’s Toad before revealing the two Vegetation cards, flip it back over and ignore keep face up on Fowler’s Toad; it does not remain face up until you have revealed the Vegetation cards. Once you have revealed both Vegetation cards, you may hunt Fowler’s Toad. Fowler’s Toad now has the Amphibian ability:
Same as rabbit encounter but replace all instances of ‘rabbit’ or ‘Baby Rabbit’ with ‘Fowler’s Toad’ and all speed symbols with unique symbols. Also, this card does not remain faceup after it evades Red Fox.
NOTE: For this game only, swap all instances of ‘rabbit’ or ‘Baby Rabbit’ with ‘Fowler’s Toad’ in Raccoon’s rabbit swap ability.
