The brown bear is my next favorite. I’ve used the brown bear in three of my books; Muffin, Blair’s Return Home, and Journey. In the first two books, the bear takes on a ferocious stand; a mouthful of teeth. In Journey, it was a tame pet to ‘the cousins’ as they traveled through a wild land.
See? In one sense, I’d hate to be the one in the tent if that was real life. But look again. Picture yourself sitting on top of that monster if it…well, wasn’t really a monster. Whatta ride that would be!
Next favorite is the seal. They’re cute, sleek, and I’ve actually fed them. It was really neat standing about three feet from a seal and throwing it food; the only thing between us was a glass railing.
And the next favorite is the zebra. They’re just like horses, but unique in that they’ve got stripes, and that they’re mains stand straight up. They also were in Journey, only they were spotted and not stripped. Imagine trotting down the street on one of those.
So those are my next five favorite animals. 😀
