HI, my name is Mammoot and I like to visit The Pet Palace. I come once a month for a bath and the deshedding treatment. They take very good care of me here. You will normally find me hanging out by the back gate near the castle they built for me. I really get the royal treatment here. You are more than welcome to come visit me anytime.

HI, I am Wally the Woolly Mammoth. I roam the underground tunnels of Magnolia, TX. There are lots of secret chambers down here to hide in. I am excited to have knowledge of the snagthetag movement. I feel joining this secret group will enable me to finally get a forever home. Looking forward to my new digs. You can find me hanging out here.

Wow! One popped up on my FB feed that was 1-1/2 hours away. I sat there hemhawing around with, “should I go, should I not go?” What to do. Talked to my husband and he said, “if you wanna go then let’s go.” So glad we did! We pulled into the parking lot and lifted the skirt of that light pole and sure enough...there the mammoth sat! So happy I finally got my hands on one!!! Thanks to the hider who put this here!

Thanks for the hide. Beautiful morning to drive this beautiful rural area. I saw the post for this early this morning and thought to myself that surely the folks in the Conroe are would beat me to it. So, went on my bike ride, came home and ate breakfast and all the while waited for the notice that it had been claimed. When I realized that it hadn't, I finally decided to go for it. It was a 50 minute drive from my area in Spring. The closer I got the more excited I got and hoped it was still there, and thankfully it was. The art work on that building is AWESOME. Thanks again!

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

Surely back in the day the mammoths roamed freely through these fields. This mammoth took refuge in a brilliant piece of art depicting the heritage of Texas and specifically Montgomery, TX- the birthplace of the Texas flag! After you snag this tag stick around to do some geocaching and learn some history.

If you look at the pics closely you might even see the location of the hid. You are looking for a magnetic key holder.

Greenlawn Cemetery. Check for hours.

You will come up to a mammoth-sized rock. Facing the front, the treasure you seek, will be to the right, behind a large rock.

Camo-taped pb jar. Recycle!

If you’d like to see a beautiful historic bridge, walk down the dirt gravel road until you see it. Shown in the last photo.

This is my first time playing this game and I had been hoping a mammoth would pop up nearby. Finally spotted two in the area yesterday. Went to a local geocaching event and learned one had been claimed, but that meant the other was roaming free. Got up early and made the drive out to find this one. Happy to report he was still resting under his camo blanket. The cherry on top of this adventure was finding a mammoth in a Little Free Library. Also traded out some of my books and signed in the library's guest book. Thanks for the fun hunt!

Bad spot for a mammoth, cache, or anything else.

This spot is a hangout for homeless, drug addicts, etc.

No wonder it's missing and no one has found it.

Moosehead Trail, Newport, ME, US

The biggest animal we have in Maine that would compare to a mammoth is a moose; I personally have not spotted a moose on this trail however deer are common and a bonanza of smaller creatures abound.

This tag can be found by the middle sign, right hand of the trail. Look high and low.

Another perfect spot for a mammoth to hand out, so long as one of those meat eating Dino-nasties aren’t hanging around.

I remember coming here as a kid and loving this place. If your going to come here and chase this guy down, you better do it before this guy goes extinct like the real ones did.

Hint: After checking out trail info, look for spiders 🕷 in the rafters.

Oh no! I've had this tab open on my phone since avout 10:30 this morning. I wanted to take time to write a note and nlw it's 10 hours later and just getting around to it. Hopefully no one else tried to snag this tag today...

This is my first time participating on this game. I saw that it was going to be placed "in the next couple of days" earlier in the week and then noticed it was published when I looked on Wed. I gave serious thought to heading out to grab it on Thurs and would check out the local farmers market and have a drink at the brewery in town. However, I opted to look another time when a fried would be available to meet. I decided to drive up this morning before heading to a geocaching event. Part of the attraction of making the trip was also to be FTF at the cache in the library. I was FTF on that cache, found 2 other czches in town and collected this tag and picked up a book at the Little Free Library. And...was able to share a treat from the coffee shop with a couple of friends.

Glad I made the trip!

cron publish 5 months 3 weeks ago 059 - Bjorn Park

ME-27, Farmington, Chesterville, ME, US

This tag is on the far end of Bjorn Park from the parking lot, right hand post. This park was the site of the Norton Flat Schoolhouse, which was built in the early 1800's and remained a school until 1924. It was then used as a municipal building until it was demolished in the 1980's. The park was built and then dedicated in the winter of 2014. The parking lot is off from High Street.

That is not why I brought you here.

Across the street is a parking lot.

On September 19, 2019, an employee at the L.E.A.P. building that stood there reported the smell of propane. Within minutes of the first arriving fire unit, the building exploded, and eight people were injured. My brother firefighter, Captain Michael Bell, FFD, was killed in the explosion. The blast leveled the building; debris blocked the road for days. Slowly, the clean up cleared the piles and driving by the site now all one sees is the parking lot with a fresh coat of asphalt. All those who were injured have been released from the hospital, and the community of Farmington continues to heal from this event.

If you are facing the tunnel, go to the left side to find a nice rock to sit on for a break and perhaps enjoy your lunch. When you are ready to hunt for Lucy the Mammoth, look behind the tree, under a rock.

I haven't done much geocaching lately, but when I heard this tag was near our cabin on the exact trail I was planning to bike on today, I just had to go find it.

My mom heard about SnagtheTag from my aunt who had found a tag in May. When my mom got the text about the tag near us, she was really excited and couldn't even talk and explain it to us. We had to read the text ourselves because she was talking nonsense about a Muskox or Mollusk or something. My brother and I wanted to take flashlights and go look for it last night, but my mom was afraid we would get eaten by a bear or something.

We were anxious to get up early so we could try and find the tag. We thought it was going to be right along the main trail at first and just looked for a bench. We finally realized we had gone too far and turned around. We were happy to see that we were the first to get there and to snag the tag. Thanks so much for hiding this for us to enjoy!

This mammoth is looking out over what used to be our little league fields back when I was a kiddo growing up in Portage. I didn't play much, right field, and was the "3 inning" starter, covered by the rules where every player had to go in for a portion of the game. LOL Now, this view looks out over a totally different type of field, for another low scoring game involving a lot of running and a rolling ball!

When you reach the coordinates, look out towards the soccer fields, and the treasure you seek won't be "hot", but might have you seeing red! The mammoth is in a protective container that you can keep along with another extra gift. ;-) Enjoy!

Thought it was really cool that we have Mastodon tracks nearby! Of course the Mammoth would like to go visit them! Fun facts about Mastodons vs Mammoths: Mastodon were shorter and stockier than mammoths with shorter, straighter tusks. Mastodons were wood browsers and their molars have pointed cones specially adapted for eating woody browse. Mammoths were grazers, their molars have flat surfaces for eating grass!

There are several sets of Mastodon tracks on this paved trail! The photo of the 4 prints are close to ground zero. Look around and you will see a gray box (pictured) Tucked near the base between the concrete and grass, the tag is nestled! Careful! There are a few pokies nearby!
