My favorite animal would have to be hmm let me see probably the ferret. Ferrets are so cute and soft and very playful I just think that they are one of the best animals out there. I would prefer small animals because they are so much cuter and you can hold them easily. What would your favorite animal be and why?

My favorite animal is the white tiger. They are so rare and so beautiful. Like other tigers, no two have the same stripes which gives them a type of "fingerprint" so to speak. I just adore their bright blue eyes as they remind me of my own. I hope that they don't go extinct in the future but since they are born white due to a mutated gene they are always a surprise to get. The only way for them to stay on this earth is to make sure that bengal tigers in general don't go extinct. A challenge in today's world, but one I hope humanity will accomplish.

My favorite animal is the bear. Where I live we have lots of forest and lots of bears. I watch them graze in the field behind my house and admire them for there strength. I have even found a web cam that is positioned in a den to watch a mother and her baby cub.

My favorite animal is Liger. The liger is a hybrid cross between a male lion (Panthera leo) and a tigress (Panthera tigris). Thus, it has parents with the same genus but of different species. It is distinct from the similar hybrid tiglon. It is the largest of all known cats and extant felines. Ligers enjoy swimming, which is a characteristic of tigers, and are very sociable like lions. Ligers exist only in captivity because the habitats of the parental species do not overlap in the wild. Historically, when the Asiatic lion was prolific the territories of lions and tigers did overlap and there are legends of ligers existing in wild. Notably, ligers typically grow larger than either parent species, unlike tiglons which tend to be about as large a female tiger.
