Pelicans and rays are my favorite. They're both native to where I live so I see them all the time but I can never stop watching them. Especially sunset on the bay when the pelicans are feeding and the water is so calm and clear that you can see all the stingrays gathered in groups feeding.

My favorite animals are dolphins :) .. but I actually want to study Primates, but I cant pick a favorite monkey. I have volunteered at a zoo before, & they had Mandrills & squirrel monkeys... The Mandrills were very wild, just amazing to interact with..through the bars of course. lol

Mine are cats...especially cheetahs and leopards :D
I like cheetah because I like to see it's aerodynamic body modified for sprinting. I like leopard because they're the night hunter [usually] which makes it's prey even doesn't know who's the killer [just like assassin !!].

Fav Animals

Postby Carolynparsons » Wed Nov 23, 2005 6:39 pm

Yes it’s true that dogs, cats, teddy bears, have positive images but with all the movies lately such as antz and bug’s life, insects have become a positive image too.

But anyway it’s hard to choose a favourite animal because I enjoy watching or playing with many. My Uncle had lizards and iguanas (not at the same time) and I loved it when he would let me play or feed them. I’ve always had a dog and I love cats too, but I also had a frog (which my dog ate) and lots of fish, crabs, and other sea life from living in a fishing community close to salt water. And I have spent time fishing as well. The different species that were brought up with the pots and nets were different but each very interesting such as flat fish, wolf fish, cat fish, eel, different species of star fish and snails, etc. Every time that I would see something different, if some one couldn’t tell me what it was I found out myself. But if I had to choose a favourite it would be wolves, and the reason is kind of silly. My sister loves Winnie the Pooh, and mom would buy her anything that she seen of pooh. One day she asked me what I liked. At first I was stumped but I said wolves. That Christmas I had 5 wolf calendars and numerous figurines of wolves and my sister gave me a very interesting book on them. I have been collecting and reading up on wolves ever since. I also think the most beautiful dogs are actually hybrids of dogs and wolves.

Siberian huskies are nothing like wolves. Siberian huskies are nice if they are raised in th proper setting they can be very loving and just be lazy until you need or want one to do something then they can become very aggresive. Where as wolves are a very aggresive species to begin with but if you got a pup you could propably train it to like people other than yourself. :shock: I have a siberian wolf mix so I know what they can do. My dog pulled over 1750lbs. at his first wieght pull when he was a year old because he loved to pull wieght.

Aggresive wolves?

Postby Carolynparsons » Thu Nov 24, 2005 12:11 am

Wolves are not an aggresive species, they are wild and therefore don't like to socialize with Humans. They are a highly social animal and are very friendly within their pack. Cross-breding dogs and wolves can be tricky because the wild wolf can be predominant in its personality. But once again 'wild' not aggresive.
