Yup.
I've seen some beautiful cougars in the Boston area as well. They're facinating to watch.

Coolest? I dunno. I did quite a bit of field work in college. We found some fairly rare snakes but the coolest was probably a huge copperhead - pushing 3', which is big for them.

Seeing moose chilling right next to a major road in Anchorage was pretty crazy.

I've kept a lot of weird stuff over the years. True chameleons are amazingly odd. I had a neon yellow eyelash viper for a long time. It was pretty cool, but obviously not a wild encounter.

It's pretty neat when you're turkey hunting and a bird lands on the vent rib barrel of your shotgun. It's tough not to freak. Also cool when whitetail fawns will walk up to you and get a few feet away if the wind is right.

I had a doe step on my foot one time when I was hunting. I was sitting up against a tree stump. Should have seen the look in her eye when she realized what was going on. Same trip I saw a bird flying thru the woods, hit a branch and go down hard, squawking and yelping loudly then fly off.

Bald Eagles, see them every now and then around here. Saw a TON in Alaska...they all just chill on the ground. Meanwhile I'm like YO! You're endangered...get your butts in a tree!

Saw some humpback whales in Alaska. I thought that was pretty special. People were bragging how they saw Orca's but you can go to Sea World for those. You can't really see humpbacks.

I've still never seen a mountain lion in the wild...don't think I'd want to though.

Moose, black bear (too many too close for comfort), road runner...wild horses and the most majestic wild donkey EVER!

Yeah

cause seeing a pod of Orcas in the wild is exactly the same as watching one endure the sensory deprivation experiment that is swimming in circles in a bathtub at Seaworld

I saw a family of Orcas beach and attack a Minke whale over 2 hours from about 75'

Grizzly bear on top of the world highway this past summer. Got within 15 feet of him. Came around a corner and he was just walking across the road.

He was massive!

THe eagles are definitely plentiful up in AK...there used to be a lady in Homer that fed them in the winter (she passed away and it is illegal to feed the wild eagles so don't try it) I went there one day and there was over 60 eagles flying around. I have one pic with about 2 dozen on them in one shot. And then this guy...I always had to laugh at the signs.



Seen a mountain lion once when I was about 6 years old. Scary... it was walking across the road just up from where we were camped. It looked so relaxed as it slinked across the road.

While vacationing in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho with the Fam., I got to see both Osprey and Bald Eagles fishing in Lake Pend O'Reille. I had never seen either in the wild prior to that, so it was pretty cool.

Brown Bear near Sequoia National forest.
African Elephant (South Africa)

In San Diego county, I saw a Bald Eagle. A pair had made a nest up near Palomar Mountain. Saw a ton of them on our Alaska cruise.

I also saw some big horn sheep in the mountains near Anza Borego (Palm Canyon)

I've seen porpoises chasing a ship I was on. Saw sea turtles as well. One stuck it's head up to watch the ship go by.
