The "Do You Travel" thread gave me this idea. How many species of animals have you seen both in the wild and in a captive setting, including but not limited to a zoo, a farm, as a pet, etc. My own list is painfully short, and probably incomplete because in all likelihood I have just forgotten about some of them. All of these are animals local to where I live. American Crow Red Fox North American Porcupine Bald Eagle Red Tailed Hawk Mouse (Does infesting my house count as wild? I tend to kill pests on sight. So yell at me, see if I care.) Rat Wood Turtle Eastern Painted Turtle Turkey Striped Skunk Garter Snake North American River Otter Mallard Duck Honey Bee Swallowtail Butterfly Monarch Butterfly (in egg, larval, pupae, and adult form.) Bobcat American Kestrel Turkey Vulture Blue Crab (I think. Put it in the maybe pile.) North Atlantic Sea Star Painted Lady Butterfly American Lobster Red Shouldered Hawk Blue Mussel (at Price Chopper.) Periwinkle Slipper Shell (at Fenway Park of all Places. NEAQ sent some people.) Cardinal Blue Jay Rat Snake Pheasant (it must have escaped from a game farm and lived wild for at several months before that dog got it.) And probably a number of other animals, I can't be bothered to remember. Update: And also the Common Carp. This one is interesting, and also a maybe. I see koi carp regularly. However I saw wild, invasive carp in the wetland area of the Roger Williams Park Zoo. They even had a sign about them. I wish the zoo would get rid of them really (though they do seem to have come with the pond.) I wish they would instead possibly introduce some kind of native fish to replace them. Maybe there is no replacement or they are too hard to get rid of. How about my fellow ZooChatters?
