  • A skunk came up once to me at a picnic table I was sitting at, but it didn't bother me and left. Also got about 20 feet from a deer once. Also saw an aligator in the wild, but it was about 100 yards away.
  • We have LOTS of deer, squirrels, and birds in our area, so I've been very close to them (although I'm not sure if it's considered the wild if it's in the suburbs). I have had a tarantula crawl right next to me when I was gardening (EEEK is not too strong a word!), had to chase an opossum and her babies out of our backyard, and had to chase a woodrat that one of our cats brought indoors back out of the house. That's all I can think of at the moment...
  • i wrestled and killed many types of animals, including caimans,anacondas,wild dogs,just to name a few but i'm still afraid of the toad. today if i encounter those animals,i would not kill them.
  • I'll narrow it down to genus and not individual species because I don't have all night and I'm guessing neither do you. Birds, squirrels, lizards, bugs, Deer, skunks, possums, nutria rats, alligators, otters, snakes, skinks, frogs, raccoons, turtles, crabs, fish, shrimp, eels, oysters, coyotes, mice, rats, rabbits, armadillos, bob cats and that's about it I believe.

  • We live in a rural-like area in Florida, USA, so I see deer, turkey, raccoons, snakes, all types of birds (esp red shouldered hawks), armadillos, squirrels, foxes and even a bobcat a time or two. It's great. No matter how down I get, going outside around here lifts me up!
  • Shark, eels, barracuda, fish, dolphon, deer, racoon, skunk, opossum, squirrel, parrots, other birds, bats and probably others I can't think of.
  • black caiman.
  • Nurse Sharks, Reef sharks, morey eels, jellyfish, squid...basically anything you'd find in or around a coral reef.
  • A bear - We were in the tent at Yosemite and the person at the next campsite left their backpack out with food in it. The bear snatched the backpack and ran our tent, bumping into it knocking my son over (who was also inside the tent) and ran off.
  • The Intresing ones are bears (4 times) Mouting lions or puma what ever you want to call it (2 time) Cyoties and a rattle snake.
  • I've been fairly close to geese, deer, and a skunk and a chipmunk. Only saw the skunk from a safe distance.
  • I've been close to deer, wild hare, within 15 steps of a beaver foraging in shallow water, a porcupein in Canada, squirrels curious of my camp while camping in the woods, about 20 yards from a timber wolf and her pups(thank goodness she was more worried about feeding them!),5 feet away from hungry alligators in a Lousisiana swamp (up on a dock where I won't get eaten!) and the scariest...less than 3 feet from a skunk that walked right by me in the woods while I sat TOTALLY motionless. Their eyesight isn't good but smell is great..luckily -- no wind and I survived !
  • a bear....it bit off my right foot.
  • A bear in my front yard. After he knocked over the trash can I went out to see what was making noise outside and he climbed the tree beside my shed. Also, last fall I was driving up my road and a baby doe ran into the side of my car and knocked itself out cold. My husband, son and I got it to its feet and walked it around until it could walk straight again. Then we sent it off into the woods with its mother, who stood in the woods off the road and waited for her baby. And again, my husband and I were sitting on his mother's back porch, years ago and a skunk walked up and brushed his back on our feet which were hanging off the porch. It was pretty cool.
  • coming back on a dark moonless night i accidently walked through a herd of wild horses that were going in the opposite direction,luckily i didn t spook them and i came out safely.
  • I recently met an elephant in my local gym and he was so cute. I rode him all night because he was so big!

  • Well, I'm a red fox that lives in the forest trying to not let anyone see me and you won't believe how hard it is trying to AnswerBag while trying to let no one see me and trying to find a wireless Internet connection and typing and walking on four legs while trying to carry a laptop all over the forest and to keep it away from bigger animals and bird poop and all that. It's crazy but it's my life. Can anyone help me or give me any suggestions?
  • I was on a survival training course taught by the community college,in case of getting lost in the forest.We each got to bring one item so I choses a blanket.One night a bear walked up and sniffed my face.Strangly I felt now fear at all and the bear went away.I guess it was wondering what I was doing there.For some reason I have no fear of bears,and think them as being cuddly creatures.
  • I had a squirel come up to me in the woods one time. It just looked up at me and started making those weird chattering noises. *gasp* I must be a squirel wisperer...
  • well I have gotten really close to a few birds. And I also found a baby rabbit on my steps... I actually take care of him now. ^_^(he was like a week old at the time)

  • I was working in California on a forest fire. Our strike team was hiking back to base camp when a black bear pop out of the bushes.. He was about thigh high when on all fours.
