My favourite animal by far is the lion. But I'm also quite partial to tigers and cheetahs. Just something about big cats in general. Beauty, strength, grace, stealthiness, powerful... all in one package.

Oh yeah. Something to add on top of my fur in the winter to stay warm.

Any other favourite animals that aren't considered food?

Cobalt

Raccoons are pretty cool. I've worked with those before. Might be doing it again in the very near future.

Then again, depending on what part of the country you're from it could be placed to debate as to weather or not they're food.

And what is wrong with having a favourite animal which is considered to be a food product in most countries? you make it sound like it is not a valid answer.

Without cows we wouldn't have milk, cheese, yoghurt or cream. (well any nice tasting yoghurt, cream, milk or cheese)
Without cows we wouldn't have cowboys and without cowboys we wouldn't have any great western films.

I never said there was anything wrong... anyone eat lion meat recently? O_o

I do know that there are some countries in this world who eat cats. As to why they eat cats and not cows is beyond me. @_X

the reason he is there is when some one asks what he is doing there I answer the lion is my car-pet.

My favorite animal is:
a cat
a lion
a wolf(i hope it's the right word in English because i'm not an native speaker I only speak school english!)
a horse

Kirauni
18.07.2006, 19:24
Fiona, it's "wolf" ;)

Actually, my favourit animals are wolves, too. But I also like lions and generally all kinds of canines or felines.

Fiona
19.07.2006, 13:41
@Kirauni:Thank you!^^

Kirauni

You are welcome, Fiona.
In case you've got some questions regarding English, just come to the "Learner's Corner (http://www.pride-lands.eu/wbb2/board.php?boardid=370)". You are likely to get some answers there :)


Concering the topic there is one more thing. I wondered why there were so many wolf-fans or even lion.fans out there. I mean in the Furry Fandom you these are somehow the "mainstream" animals. Do you have any suggestion why this might be the case? Any theories?
I wondered because animals like cows or even rabbits can be cute, too. So why are the wolves and lions getting all the attention?
I surely asked myself this question, but I honestly don't know. I somehow feel more related to felines and canines that to cows or rabbits, for example.
No offence. It just came to my mind and I am glad to meet people who like other animals than I do. ^^

I would have to say my favorite animal would be the white siberian tiger but I'm also partial to the ring-tailed lemur.

Albus
20.07.2006, 11:50
Well I do like cats and foxes, but do I really need to tell you which animal is my number one favourite?

Fiona
20.07.2006, 15:32
I think wolves have something that makes them powerful and respectful!
@Kirauni:You must tell me more about the corner because of some things at this side I'm a little bit confused!

The Sonic God
21.07.2006, 05:07
Wuffies get so much attention these days, I find wolves, dogs, foxes, canines of all kinds all over the place. They seem to be almost everyone's favourite animal. I even live where wolves call home.

Still... my favourite animal is a big cat which I haven't come into close contact with in over 2 years.

@ Fiona: I'm jealous of the fact that your English is really quite good.

One of my Furry BB's was holding a thread concerning this. I think the best conclusiuon that people came up with after about a week was that when people choose a fursona/favorite animal, there is a tendency to gravitate towards exotics or animals that one does not see in everyday life.

"I.E. If your going to play, play big or go home."-a coworker of mine

Now, that put aside, I've seen a lot of people who identify with certain species of domestic dogs (the Collie seems to be very popular.) as well as some unusual varients of other species. The oddest one I think I've come acorss was a Platyapus.

The Sonic God
22.07.2006, 00:55
The most unique creatures I've come across in the fandom are sharks, octopuses, sphinxes, and gryphons.

But many children grow up learning about the animal "pecking order:"

Dog - Cat - Mouse

So, naturally, a fursona is going to expand from this as the child grows up over time. A wolf is a canine, thus part of the dog family. A lion is a feline, thus part of the cat family. A rat is a rodent, thus part of the mouse family. See where this is going?

Wolves and Lions are very popular, yes, but keep looking, you'll see more than just wolves and lions.

Alex Kile
22.07.2006, 15:08
I also have a theory about the lion side of the fandom. I think the lion king has a lot to do with the lions around.

Also the other theory I had is to do with the choice of animal and society's view of the animal in question.

The following view is my interpretation of the qualities that the individual animals possess.

Lion's- Strength, Honour, Gentleness and Dignity

Wolfs- A free spirit that is not bound by anything, Can always be counted on, when the chips are down.

Dolphins- Jokers and always up to mischief.

Reepacheep
22.07.2006, 15:50
definitely the larger more powerful animals will be chosen first - it sounds more appealing than a worm or something of equal lowliness.

Kirauni
22.07.2006, 21:29
Thank you for your answers and theories. They really sound convincing. Still there is one question left, if you don't mind.
What exactly is a "Platyapus" ?

Albus
22.07.2006, 22:24
A Platypus (http://muweb.millersville.edu/~edfound/intered/pics/plat.jpg) is a rather strange Australian aquatic animal, Kirauni. I don't know much about them, myself...

Alex Kile
23.07.2006, 00:08
A Platypus is an egg laying mammal that lives in streams like a bever does.( but they don't build dams.)

Platypui are shy and timmard but the males have a venomous spur on their back legs

The Sonic God
23.07.2006, 04:25
I have reason to believe that a platypus was built from the scrap that mother nature left over when creating the other animals. ^^

Kirauni
23.07.2006, 11:10
All right.. thanks for the answer. I would have never guessed that one. In German it's "Schnabeltier" meaning "bill-animal" or rather "beak-animal".
Very intersting... but no wonder I didn't know. I'll try to keep that in mind though ^^

Hhmm, what is a platypus exactly? It lays eggs but it feeds its young milk?

Are you talking about those long-haired highland cattle? Cuz I just love those cows!! So cute! I was in Scotland a couple of months ago, and when you're there, you can't help but falling in love with these adorable creatures<3<3

My favourite animal, hmm... I love a lot of animals, but my favourite should be the anteater=) Don't know exactly why, but I guess there's just something about their looong noses and big, fluffy tails I like... (LOL, I know I HAVE a weird taste:P)
