A Riddle a Day, Day 4

What do a hat

and a wetlands

have in common?

Me, rodent engineer!

The hat almost caused my extinction.

My ability to create wetlands,

even during a drought,

may save us all.

What am I?

 

See,  riddle poems don’t have to rhyme.

This one combines science and history, two of my favorite subjects. If you know the answer, you can learn the role of this charming creature in the history of  the United States. Remember that not all history is nice, even if sometimes there are happy endings.

What are your favorite study subjects? What topics would you like to turn into riddles? I hope you’ll share your riddles with the world.
