Favorites Animal

Postby Inuyasha » Fri Nov 11, 2005 8:12 pm

Humans are led to believe that some animals are for a lack of a word better than others. I mean teddy bears, puppies, and kittens all have postivve images. As oppose to most bugs. And because of this image more people save puppies and kittens than let's say buffalo's Life is not fair. So what's ur favorite? And how (if u know) did it become?

Spiders. I have lots of them. I saved many spiders from the bottom of my Friends and Family's boots.

I should also say I think they're one of the most 'intelligent' arthropods. Look up stuff on the portia spider, quite a little marvel.

I think deer are the dumbest animals. I hate them.

How can you pick just one favorite? I really like great white sharks because they are cool, wombats because they are so cute, gorillas, millipedes, octopus, squid, hydra. I like hydras because our class got to see them eat a 'water flea'. So cool. Horseshoe crabs too. Choosing is impossible!
A lot of people I know think deer are dumb because they walk out in front of their car a lot or run into their car. I know someone who is terrified of sloths.

interesting as it is, that's not the question why do u like freat whites and not like deer? Is it innate, (probably not) or do to the pressures of society.

my favorite

Postby 123Herpatology » Mon Nov 14, 2005 3:42 am

Well, i can't be real specific, but i love snakes. I think the reason being is that pretty much everyone has a sense of fear of snakes, and i think that fear that inhabits my mind drives me to understand them more, and i have a profound respect and love for all things that slither. I find snakes more interesting than let's say dogs and cats because those seem so ordinary while as snakes have such a ambiguous nature. Whether it be their scaly skin (not slimy), or those glossy almost lifeless eyes, and their undulating movement, snakes win my heart over everytime! what about you inuyasha, what do you think?

Terrorists, I hate those animals
People mock what they do not understand or fear.

:twisted: my favorite animal would have to be the golden eagle. Because it's the biggest eagle in the world and it has the largest wingspan. but for the most part because it's an animal that you don't see alot of. And because they are free to go where ever they want they aren't bound to the ground like man is. :?

so animals to you are symbolic. And i'm guessing you also want to be as free as a eagle.

I dont know about the largest eagle...i thought there was another eagle that was bigger...i could be mistaken

this isn't related to the topic, but does anyone have any idea how someone becomes a junior member? is it how many posts you submit?
