You should hit it anyway. Yolo.
I'll be going back to the crazy weird cats in an hour, and they'll be doing all the stuff I wrote.
Now, there's an idea.
WHERE WAS THAT DOG ON NOVEMBER 22, 1963?
We used to have Hornytoads here but the invasion of the Fire Ant has all but wiped them out.
We habe armadillos but the only one I've seen that wasn't roadkill was running around on the LBJ ranch in broad daylight. I thought they were nocturnal.
Austin has a whole colony of bats living under the Congress Ave. bridge.
Further south in Texas they have the elusive chupacabra.
On the family farm in central minnesota we had a black squirrel living out in the woods.
You mean you'd swap me Old Yeller for this here horny toad??
Yep. In Vancouver, there is a lot of stupid people. I'm pretty sure everywhere else has them too but I think vancouver takes the cake.
We have boatloads of parrots down by the shores (CT) WHEN we were kids the word was they came on pirate ships hundreds of years ago, but im pretty sure a few just got lose and started populating
Where I live (north west CT) we have Fisher cats, really creepy looking guys, at night they "scream " its loud and sounds like a woman screaming
I'm quite jealous of all the awesome animals that y'all get to see! Here in Chicago we only have an overabundance of pigeons and rabbit-sized rats!
I live in Michigan. Wild animals that I have seen in my yard: Turkey, dears, squirels, skunks, badgers, raccoons, ducks, cardinals, Hummungbirds.
One of the most exotic creatures I have seen anywhere close to where I live was walking along a street about two miles away. Tall, thin, with flaming red hair, a big purse slung over one shoulder, wearing an extremely short bright blue dress, cowboy boots and over the other shoulder was a Hula Hoop.
If I only had my camera ready.
My daughter lives in Chicago - I'll agree on your big rats. I stopped in a little b-b-q place to get something for the road and there are signs in the alley about sealed containers due to rats, city ordinance yada-yada. Then I saw one - wow! Body like the world's fattest squirrel.
Rats would never last out here....waaaaay too many falcons and what I believe are eagles. Falcons drop like a rock , the twigs tremble for a few seconds, bye-bye bunny, hanging from the claws.
We have the weirdest rabbits here - shortest legs ever for a rabbit. I miss the long-legged jack rabbits we had were I grew up. Those were cool. Sproing!
Sorry Slobake, but no you don't. There are no BR in Northern California, nor any part of California.
Just be lucky you don't have the Predator of insects.
We have a GIANT horned owl living in a dead tree up the hill behind the house, and if the skins are any indication, some really impressive rat snakes are hanging out in our old barn.
Every spring I'll get at least one velvet tail rattler (AKA timber rattler) over 7 feet on the back porch. We get all manner of 3~6 foot eastern diamondbacks all through the spring and summer but will only see a few velvet tails and they are always big.
Huge fox squirrels, big possums, bobcats, and the occasional turkey.
There's a guy about a mile from where I live that owns a Camel. In Portland, Oregon. Really close to that place there used to be a bunch of Ostriches in a different guys front yard.
Weird animals that would naturally be here? None that are that interesting really. Just some gnarly looking barn spiders and the occasional Brown Recluse hiding in a pile of wood. Coyotes are weird looking for sure, but not interesting animals. There's tons of water Bison when you go far enough out into hickville, which I wasn't aware of there being water bison in Oregon until a few years ago.
These guys, Sandhill Cranes...I forgot about them. THEY'RE BACK!!!!! Creepy suckers, about 3-3.5 feet tall. Big beak, wicked red war paint. My dogs will chase deer but stop at the cranes. And their creepy cluckle-cluckle as they hop or fly away.
Caribou. Those things are ugly. Wild buffalo. Those things are HUGE!
Most of the people of LA.
One used to be able to order this as nigiri at Mobo Sushi in Santa Cruz
