As is, I am a field for the curious;
Study me well to be naturally serious;
But cut my first and my last,
And scramble me fast;
Now I'm a home with warmth quite mysterious

What am I?

Hope you enjoy my first riddle.

I think you are:

BIOLOGY

As is, I am a field for the curious;
Study me well to be naturally serious;

Biology is a field of study concerning the natural world.

But cut my first and my last,
And scramble me fast;
Now I'm a home with warmth quite mysterious

Remove its first and last letters (B and Y) and you are left with 'IOLOG'. Anagram ('scramble') this and you can make IGLOO - a house made of blocks of freezing cold ice, something which (in theory anyway) truly is a mystery how it can be warm enough to live in!
