What's the coolest wildlife you've seen?

One time I saw a Golden Eagle and another time a Great Horned Owl. Both were impressively huge.

Also saw a baby moose at well over 8 ft tall and also a (scary) bear encounter.

    Years ago when we lived on a bushland property, I once came across what I'm guessing was a lace monitor. Would easily have been 1.5m total length and was just sitting out in the sun. That was the only one I ever saw in the 12 - 13 years we were there.

    Wild turkeys are fricking moronic. They can only fly like 3 ft off the ground so if there's a fence they get all bunched up and don't know what to do. Also I heard they sometimes drown in heavy rain by looking up at the sky too much.

      This is bullshit. Turkeys can jump 6ft even with clipped wings and I see them up 20ft in trees all the time.

    Once when I was a kid, there was a wild fox living in our backyard. Might’ve been female since it was rather small. We’d feed her things like hot dogs or dog food. Then one day she just fricked off to who knows where, like all wild animals do. We lived near some woods so we’d see things like deer, wild rabbits, and opossums every so often.

    There was also the time I went to the monarch butterfly reserve where besides the butterflies, I saw a wild hummingbird.

    Gray fox in my back yard. I know she's female because she had long nursing nipples when I first saw her. It was so cool because I did not even know gray foxes existed before I saw her, and she ended up being quite friendly, at least not too fearful of me. She would take hot dogs I threw to her. She'd just look at me and wait like an eager dog then take it behind a tree to eat, and come back for seconds sometimes too.

    I haven't seen her in months, maybe just because they're nocturnal and it's still getting dark at like 6pm. Hopefully I will see her again when it's light out later and our schedules line up. I always keep some hot dogs and cheese sticks in my fridge for the various animals, skunks and opossums usually.

    I saw a bald eagle
    And then another
    And then another
    And then 5 more
    I was at the landfill.

    Then I went home, and saw 2 more bald eagles, and remembered there are 3 parks nearby with open trash bins. They also stop by apartment dumpsters, but not other businesses, probably because it's quieter.

    I also saw a few fishers while walking down a manicured trail

      It's funny that the proud national symbol of a bald eagle is really a glorified vulture.

      Goldens are cool. Can’t decide which of the eagles I think look the best.

      >I also saw a few fisher so
      Lucky you. Would be great to see some in action. Very neat animals. Like honey badgers but more relaxed.

          Found written in a letter from Benjamin Franklin to his daughter:
          >For my own part I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country. He is a bird of bad moral character. He does not get his living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead tree, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the labour of the fishing hawk; and when that diligent bird has at length taken a fish, and is bearing it to his nest for the support of his mate and young ones, the bald eagle pursues him, and takes it from him. . . . the turkey is in comparison a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America.

            Maybe he was right but going for a Turkey is also moronic, who the hell has respect for Turkeys

            can you imagine if for two of America's major holidays you butchered thousands of the national bird, stuffed them, then ate them with cranberry sauce

                We have so many millions of kangaroos here though that even if we didn't get a meat supply out of it, occasional culling would still occur.

              Turkey is only a Thanksgiving thing, what other holiday are you thinking of? We eat ham on Easter and Christmas, burgers and hot dogs on Memorial Day and Independence Day, and our weight in candy on Halloween.

                I guess Christmas is more variable, but people I know or have Christmas with usually eat turkey and ham

                I like Turkey better since it's leaner and I can make bone broth from it the day afterwards.

    Frogs are pretty neat if I am lucky enough to come across them in the night. I also have fond memories seeing slowworms wriggling around in my grandparents garden when I was a kid.
