    Fish? I hadn’t even thought about sharks.

    I love a Wobbegong…

    And Black Tip Reef Sharks – they look properly menacing, but are nothing to be scared of unless you’re a small fish.

    I’ve been 2 metres away from a Tiger in the wild face to face. They are massive. It’s a good story, but in a nutshell: if you want to eat me there is nothing I can do about it. Luckily he/she turned and vanished. Later that day I narrowly avoided being kidnapped by terrorists and it didn’t end there…
    I think large birds of prey in the high mountains and small UK birds make me very happy. Got some Goldcrests in the garden atm and I never tire of watching them.

    Bataleur eagle, essentially a bird without a tail…its the agile fighter of the bird world, unstable. As it grows up the tail gets shorter and shorter, so as the bird learns how to fly it loses it’s stabilisers…

    CG, do you know that Musk Ox aren’t really Oxen, they’re more like sheep…really massive, really hairy, really angry Pleistocene sheep….

    nick – yes yes, I know that they’re not cuddly creatures and weigh up to 800 pounds. Just find them fascinating, in an odd sort of way.

    Impossible to pick an absolute favourite but I’ve always loved cats; particular favourites would be Snow Leopards and Scottish Wild cats and my wife and I were particularly delighted to see both the the Highland Wildlife Park when we had a a week in Inverness last December.

    I also have a particular soft spot for Cephlapods (Octopi, squid, cuttlefish etc.); remarkable creatures with amazing abilities to change shape, texture and colour (clever too).

    First few minutes of this documentary shows what they can do.

    Have to say the brown bears of Katmai have become my all-time favorites.

    Rhinos and elephants are totally awesome.

    Also love apes and primates.

    And you can’t beat tapirs and in the sea manatees. Ooh and seals.

    Yeah, all wild animals really.

    All of nature is awesome.

    Even wasps and hornets are awesome although I have a profound and deep routed dislike for the picnic/al fresco dining wrecking buggers.

    Seen in the real world

    Acquatic = Orcas, dolphins and harbour porpoise
    Land = Deer especially a majestic stag or an adder
    Air = Barn owl

    In zoo – blooming great snakes, especially big constrictors.

    Nothing more elemental than deer, close up and unexpected.

    Elephants are my favourite though.

    You lot do know that choice of favourite animal is well known to reflect preferences in choice or partner, don’t you?

    I made quite a happy face when I saw one of these the other day!

    I saw a bloke hit a full grown boar on the motorway once. Car was a massive mess, the boar wasn’t that smashed up (it was dead mind).

    How about this. Maned wolf. Lives in grasslands and leaps onto prey.

    Sharks and honey badgers FTW.
