Nope, we don't do those types of activities so no wild animals past your opposoms, coyotes, that kind of "wild" animal.

Doubt I'd do a safari.

I'd love to see elephants in their natural environment.

Yeah wouldn't be too thrilled to see things that would want to eat you (ie lions, tigers, bears, mountain lions, etc).

Once, while hiking, we ran into a black bear on the path! I was so scared, and the thing wouldn't move. We had to stand there, in the rain, for over an hour until it decided to move on hehehe

I would like to do a safari, I think that would be fun. I would like to see tigers in their natural habitat, as long as they don't eat me!

I wouldn't like to run into a crocodile!

I don't go camping or hiking either, but my aunt used to have a cabin in Colorado and we've some pretty cool animals when driving up there like beavers, weasels, a black bear and a big porcupine.

I would like to do a safari to see all the animals, but I'm not much of a camper so I would rather do just a day trip.

I would actually like to see a great white shark. I would just like to see how big they actually are and would love to see one jump out of the water.

I don't ever want to see a chimpanzee in the wild; they see to just randomly go crazy!

Have you ever encountered any interesting animals in the wild? Maybe when out fishing, camping, hiking, etc? Well, we live out in the boonies...this morning as I left my house I saw 3 deer... last week I saw a beautiful red fox. I've also seen porcupines and a couple skunks and a coyote around our road too...
I think the scariest encounter I have experienced was when we went camping (just in tents) with our friend's on their land...in a big field. That night, we listened for hours as a pack of coyotes whimpered and howeled and called to one another (I think there were two packs, one on either side of us). It was pretty scary...given that we were right by a cow fence, we figured they were either coming for a cow, or us. lol.
Would you ever go on a safari? Oh my gosh, I would love to do this!
What is an animal that you would like see in it's natural environment? Any really.. I love watching anything from birds, to snakes, to larger animals.
What animal would you NOT like to run into? A bear. I've seen signs of them on the hill behind my home... I sometimes worry I might come across one when I walk Rufus on the trails...oh..and skunks.. blech.
