Wildlife Checklist

As if finding destinations was not enough we decided to make a list of interesting wildlife we could check off. I admit some of these critters we’d rather see off in the distance instead of raiding our tent for food while we sleep or dragging off small dogs and children… but it’d still be awesome to see a bear or something. I admit I added one domestic species to the list merely because they do not really exist much here in the north (at least I’ve never seen one.) How could I not want to see an adorable herd of floppy-eared cows? And lastly I have listed cryptids for bonus points. I’m not saying Bigfoot really exists, but who am I to say he definitely doesn’t? I am putting * next to the beasties we’ve seen.
