What is your favourite animal?

Mine would have to be cows. They are so gentle, intelligent and sensitive beings. I love the calfs. I have hugged one before and the feeling was magical.

Have you ever seen a baby goat before :goat:? They are so adorable and hug-worthy! I think owls are beautiful too, especially snowy owls from Harry Potter! Giraffes are cute too, and herbivore. They actually remind me of brachiosaurus.

I love all songbirds, waterfowl, and other birds and find them incredibly fascinating. They travel thousands of miles twice a year in migration, flying over vast oceans, forests, through high wind and rain and everything, and still manage to thrive! And the variety of color and size, from little hummingbirds to Canada geese, is also amazing. If you have ever heard the call of a common loon, there is nothing more haunting and mystical. I have heard wolves howl in the wild and it still doesn't compare.

Parrots. Always have had a special connection with them.

I love cows too. They are beautiful, gentle creatures with the sweetest eyes.

I actually got to see a couple baby cows last week for the first time. They were more affectionate, curious, and licky than I ever expected.

Red fox! They are my spirit animal. (For those questioning, I have a lot of Native blood).

Tough question. I like birds, but I'd probably go with raccoons. They're just so neat with their cute paws...
Octopi as a close second, intelligent animals are my favorite.

Raccoons! We have a lot that live in my neighbourhood and I love watching them foraging through the alleys with their little babies. They're like cats with hands.

What is your favourite animal?

Another cat lover here. I love all creatures great and small. I can't even choose. If I had to pick one (for now), other than a cat, I'd say otters. Ever since I saw Ring of Bright Water years and years ago I just fell in love.

Coyotes.

Where I live they are mostly considered predator pests. I like to think of them as pest predators. They eat all sorts of rodents and other small mammals. Occasionally they eat small deer. Farmers/ranchers don't like them because they prey on goats, sheep and cows.

I like them because they are extremely intelligent. I can't very well blame them for being what they are, and they are very good at what they do. They live all around us -even in the cities. If you live in North America there is probably a coyote within a mile or few of where you are sitting right now.

It has no friends, it is shot on sight wherever it goes, yet it thrives in an unbelievable way. I read recently that in the US we kill about 400,000 coyotes per year, 80,000 of those are killed by the US Fish and Wildlife Dept. The rest are killed by everyone else. They have been hunted like this since the 1930's. Ranchers where I live will pay you to kill them ($20 per head). Yet in spite of this they are growing in population exponentially.
I consider it a treat to be able to observe them from time to time.

One of the most adaptive and successful mammals -ever.

The symbol of the race ought to be a human being carrying an ax, for every human being has one concealed about him somewhere, and is always seeking the opportunity to grind it.
- Mark Twain, a Biography

So no one for bunnies here? There are a lot of brown rabbits in the airport. I occasionally bring carrots for them to eat, and I love seeing them run up to me. I think rabbits are cute too, and they are herbivorous

We have some little light brown bunnies here that are adorable. They are very shy, though, and rightfully so considering the amount of predators are here!

We have coyotes where I live but nobody tried to kill them. They will come right up to my fence actually.

There are lots of wild bunnies in the neighborhood. I see them out front, in the back yard, and in the field beyond. If I ride my bike, I almost always encounter several bunnies along the way. There are squirrels, chipmonks, wild turkeys, and morning doves too. And the Canada geese have returned to town, laying over, on their trip south. I'm really glad to see them!

Dogs! I've always been in a family with at least one but more often two or three canine members. They are truly (wo)mans best friend. So forgiving and loyal. People don't deserve dogs, they're too good!
