What are your favorite wild animals? Mine are wolves, panda's, and pretty much any big cat. :) Oh and I also love polar bears!!!

For ocean life, my favorite is the killer whale.

Gorrilla's are different than apes, but I am not sure how. I think it's an alligator/crocodile thing.

Hominoidea or anthropoid apes - tail-less primates
Includes gibbons, orangutans, chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas, and humans
Modern species evolved from same ancestral stock that produced humans
DNA evidence indicates divergence from human line 5-7 million years ago
DNA of chimpanzees and humans is 98.4% similar
Similarities in the proteins hemoglobin and myoglobin indicate that the chimpanzee is our closest relative
Hylobatidae - Gibbons - The most primitive branch of the tail-less apes
Pongidae - Orangutans, chimpanzees, bonobos, and gorillas
Hominidae - Humans

I guess this would help clarify. There are prosimians in the primate order which are tree shrews etc and then there are anthropoidea which are monkeys, apes, and humans
Monkeys
New World monkeys or Ceboidea - not involved in evolution of humans

Includes spider monkey, capuchin, and marmosete Most are small and have prehensile tails. The oldest fossils are Oligocene from South America.


Then there are Old World monkeys or Cercopithecoidea which are baboons, mandrills, macaques, rhesus monkeys, and Barbary ape. Their nostrils are close together and directed downward like in humans. Their tails are not prehensile.

This is a hard question. I have a hard time saying one or two things are my favorites of anything. I love each animal for its own uniqueness. I saw a fox today and my heart got just happy. He was so beautiful and in good shape too. I see Ravens everyday on my way to work I know that my day will be just fine as they are watching over me. The Bear omg to see a bear is a wonderful thing I like knowing that I have one down the road makes me feels safe. The wolves, the dear, the chipmunk all are special and very dear to me.

Reptiles in the wild are awesome.. but my favorite wild animal(s) would have to be the Wolves and Mustangs that we get around here. Nothing more amazing the hearing wolves howl or seeing a herd of mustangs running free.

Tigers, hands down. They are amazingly beautiful and powerful animals.

I also love all manner of birds, I think they are comical. Most people see pigeons and think "rat with wings" but I like to watch them when I am walking from the bus stop to work and they are fricking hilarious! Something about birds just makes me smile.
