Five of the coolest wild animal species:
- superb bird-of-paradise, New Guinea – Just ask David Attenborough about their elaborate, colorful mating ritual
- North American river otter and pretty much all mustelids – cute, cunning, tubular, and aquatic predators
- Pallas’s long-tongued bat – a nectar-slurping genius of Central and South America
- African wild dog, or African painted dog – high stamina, highly social, 97% efficient predator, gorgeous coloring, huge adorable ears
- panther chameleon or veiled chameleon – coiled prehensile tail, long insect-grabbing tongue, color changes, camouflage, awesome toes, independent eye movement, swaying dancers in the trees
Oh, yes. We’ll be returning to wild creatures.
