I think my favorite animal is probably, "just a dog". It's what I know. But I'm pretty fascinated by birds of any type and also think turtles are pretty cool. I suppose I can't pick.

Class looks amazing! I loves foxes!

Jonie Helms said...

I love the big, wild cats...cheetah, tiger, leopard, jaguar, and more.

Jodi Marie said...

Northern girl, so I love anything woodland, but Bison/Buffalo is my fav. My Grandmother would often take us to a small park to picnic a few times each summer on the way to our cabin. It was near a reserve that had bison on it and I just always loved imagining a huge herd of wild buffalo thundering across the plain.

Ellinor said...

My favourite animal is something called nötskrika in swedish. It is a bird that lives in the forrest. Has blue parts on its wings and I adore it. It is called nutt screamer if you translate it. But if it should be animal as something thats not a bird. I really do like cats. If it should be something wild i do like raindeers or cariboos as they also are called. It has to do with where I use to live before in sweden. They are beautiful animals but stupid. When you drive and they are on the road. They do not move. They clame their precence like " I was here first and you better drive offroad because I'll move whenever I feel like it. But if you take out a plastic bag or hava dog bark. They run.

becslb said...

I'm not sure I can name an animal I don't like so naming just one I do like is hard! Two animals from my daily life that I love are my dog and a robin. I love my dog, he's very old now and needing lots of extra care but still acts like a puppy on his walks, wants to play with his toys all the time and loves curling up next to me for a cuddle. I love the robin that sits on the wall when I'm in the garden, he's not shy at all and I just love to watch him.

aussiebug said...

Stefan Csomor said...

I like to watch birds and i have three birdhouses hanging on my house. Thank you for the opportunity Alisa!

Sea Dean said...

Hands down, or is that paws down Felix Cattus or the common house cat. There is no better company than a cat on the lap and they pretty much look after themselves. I have a great deal of respect for anybody (and I include cats there) that make few footprints on the earth, kill only to eat and administer love and appreciation as needed.
