From what I've seen most of us love animals of some type. Leave out our household pet and instead let's talk about
other mammals, like something that lives in the zoo or the wild, what is your favorite wild animal? Also let's leave your weird uncle out of the topic of 'wild animals'...lol and believe me I had one cousin that would fit the title of wild! <shudder>
So, since I can't pick a cat or dog or chinchilla...I will choose the Penguin! I love penguins for lots of reasons. Hubby and I happen to collect them and it all goes back to dating. He's a hockey fan and was born just outside of Pittsburgh, PA...home of the Pittsburgh Penguin Hockey NHL team. Need I say more. Our first date was to a hockey game and I was hooked. Then the collection started and they are beginning to take over the place...lol The one thing I find so strange about
them is they are paired off with polar bears!
They live at opposite poles on the planet!
All penguins, except for the Galapagos, live BELOW the equator and all polar bears live ABOVE the equator. I believe it was a book that started them off as buddies and, as they say, the rest is history. They are just cute! And before I started reading on them I had no idea there were so many different types, 17 in all. They range from the 3 1/2 foot Emporer to the Fairy who is 16 inches tall so there is quite a range of sizes and shapes. And my favorite penguin of all is Opus!
What's your favorite animal in the wild?
Play fair. Don't hit people. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
