Topic: Animal Appreciation Thread

Do you enjoy studying/learning from animals? Its one of the things I treasure greatly.

I am particularly fascinated by African wildlife: Hippo, Rhinoceros, Leopard, Ostrich, Hyena, Zebra, Vulture, Meerkat, Gorilla and many species of antelopes.

Right now the animal which I find most fascinating is

The Bongo

I... like... animals.

Especially bunnies. Owning bunnies is great. And baby bunnies.

Re: Animal Appreciation Thread

Well, I've always loved and doted upon squirrels and never thought once about harming one (unlike Rogue or Frank Costanza would like you to believe).

Anyway, here's a picture of one of these cuddly animals.

Re: Animal Appreciation Thread

I love animals; especially eating them. ajb007/tongue ajb007/biggrin My favourite animal is The Tiger. I also used to own two dogs. Both have sadly passed on, but they were wonderful company. They were, in case anyone is interested, Maltese sh**zus.

Seems that this pelican loves pigeons so much it could eat a whole one...

Can't stand the birds (pigeons) myself; mangey, pestulant rats-with-wings.

As for qaudrupeds, big cats of all kinds are beautiful, but for general laid back cool, you can't beat a Highland cow...

Aye, a cow with horns.  All mature Highland cattle have horns, regardless of gender ajb007/tongue

Well, they have to survive in Scotland - for that alone I'd find great benefit in having horns! ajb007/biggrin  (That's having horns, people - not having the horn... ajb007/wink )

Re: Animal Appreciation Thread

Count me in with the Penguin lovers. There really is nothing to dislike about them and they are so cute. When I've finished watching CR I will be straight next door for Happy Feet. ajb007/biggrin

As for M5's cows, they're also fab. There is something very endearing about cows.Must be that big brown eyes.
