A week ago we asked you– our very attractive, highly intelligent and unbelievably nerdy readers –to tell us what your favoritest animal in the world is. We received a flood of responses, and we wanted to show some pictures of the highlights.
Adam likes the Ai, a maned three-toed sloth that lives in the jungles of South America because they are “stupid-looking”
Meg has a fondness for…
Jonathan, yawn, likes killer whales
J-Dog believes lobe-finned fish to be “dizz-own” in his “hizz-ouse”
Who knew? Jenbug likes sloths and hyenas!
Anne-Marie Hodge, fittingly, likes the long-beaked echidna.
Meirav goes gaga for cookie cutter or cigar sharks. Great picture, I found, isn’t it?
HP would like to give an hj to a jaguarundi
In a stunning turn of events, another antelope made the list, coming from Bovi, who loves nyalas
Christopher Taylor, a card-carrying weirdo, things embioptera are “cute”
Gerry L. voted for a chimpanzee. Thanks a lot for that, Ger, it’s worked out so great.
Eugen and milkshake completely broke the rules and voted for the non-existent Mongolian death worm or Olgoi Khorkhoi
Our boy, Will Goring, came out swinging with the Stomatopod or mantis shrimp
Myles first picked puffins…
Make up your freaking mind.
Finally, Dior went with the alligator. When he grows up he wants to be a fireman!
We want to thank everyone who responded and encourage more. Who’s got the weirdest favorite animal? Betcha no matter what yours is, Andrew and I got you beat!
