What lurks behind tree stumps and makes the sound of a gagged walrus? Can alligators the size of a squirrel fly? Can a human inside a ranger rick mascot outfit feel kids trying to tickle them? openbox9 and its mascots Carlee and Kathleen went to answer these questions at National Wildlife Federation’s Hike and Seek — a Chicago, Seattle, Washington DC fundraising event openbox9 had the joy of designing their branding and marketing vehicles.

I will NOT tell you about whether gators can fly – you’ll have to go next year to find out.
