I love Hummingbirds, Penguins, and Polar Bears!!!!

Jaguars, Mountain Lions, Polar Bears, Eagles, Falcons and Red Tailed Hawks.

I love all wild animals that treat me with mutual respect. I happen to especially love and like those above. Seeing Eagles, Falcons, Red Tailed Hawks soaring overhead is like a blessing upon the Earth.

Hi Larry,

For me it's a two-way tie between dolphins and grizzly bears. Out of any 'wild' animals I have ever seen up close, these two have made the biggest impression.

Here are my thoughts on the above...

I had the privilege of observing two grizzlies up close in their fenced-off sanctuary on Grouse Mountain in Vancouver, BC. I remember walking up to the fence and being confronted by this bear suddenly staring me down, as if doing a threat assessment. He quickly decided I was harmless and went back to burrowing his head into the snow. This instance of being 'read' by such a magnificent creature was a brief but awesome moment that cannot be described or forgotten.

A year-and-a-half later, my wife and I had our picture taken with a dolphin at the Mirage in Las Vegas. Again, it was all too short, but it allowed us a glimpse of a creature that exhibited intelligence, personality and a sense of humor.

@James Deagle

You are correct. The bottle nose dolphin is the only animal on this planet that has a larger frontal lobe then humans. You realize what this means! 🙂
