    If you had a choice, what animal would it be?

    Mine would be a bird of prey. Not the kind that feed on the dead, but one that kills.

    You'd have keen eyesight, get ta fly around, and eat what ya killed.
    I like meat, and I prefer it fresh. Yet I can't believe that a bird understands how cool it is to be able to fly.

    Then I wonder if they really don't know. :eek:

    At work, when the wind kicks up, the seagulls are out in force. They don't flap a wing and seem to rejoice in the ability they were given.

    What would your choice be? :)

    Riding the thermals must be one of the neatest things birds have going for them. I've watched Pelicans do it for hours, over ONE building, round and round. :thumbsup:

    Obviously, I can't come back as one of my cats or dogs. I no longer exist. :rolleyes:

    I know I would have serious competition for food, but a fully developed Black Panther ( I don't want to hear it ), would be at the top of my list. I've stood til I'm weak in the legs, staring at them.

    Either an Eagle, or a Bengal tiger. Not much messes with the Bengal.

    The thing is even the birds of prey have their weakness. Today I saw a hawk drop down and grab a mouse. As the hawk began it's upward climb this other bird comes down and does a smack down on the hawk. The hawk falters sideways and drops the mouse. The hawk goes to take off real quick and the next thing you know the bird comes back and takes another swipe at the hawk and the hawk changes it's direction. Then, about 5 or 6 of these other smaller birds birds just nailed this hawk and by then I had passed the birds in my Kenworth so I could not watch the rest of the outcome. But that hawk sure was in trouble.

    Just not in Idaho. We tend to shoot them here. Although if I did shoot you at least I would take you to the taxidermist and have you made up to be handsome again. Then you could sit in my front room and watch TV with me. Any particular way you like your hair?:D
