It is the largest landform region in Canada. The shield underlies much of Canada such as Quebec, Ontario, Newfoundland, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Nunavut, and the Northwest Territories. The two types of rocks that form most of the shield are igneous and metamorphic rocks. The Canadian Shield used to be mountains but is now rounded and flatter due to erosion.
Map of Georgian Bay Islands:
In the Georgian Bay Islands, you can encounter a huge variety of animals. A type of animal you can see is the eastern massasauga rattlesnake. The massasauga is shy and non-aggressive by nature and it's rarely seen in the wild due to its cryptic colouration and ability to camouflage. When feeling threatened the massasauga will rattle its tail as a warning. If you have the chance to encounter one, it's best to give it space and leave it be. There are also wild black bears which visit the islands through the warmer months searching for food. Generally, they prefer to avoid humans although food left unsecured can attract them.
