Re: Funny other animal stories

I went somewhere a couple of days ago. I drove about 3 miles and got on the freeway. I'm accelerating to get up to speed when I saw a leaf blowing in my window by the wiper. Then I realized the leaf was movingand it wwas in fact a dark brown lizard. So I popped my 4 ways, slowed down to 40, and took the next exit. I found a nice grassy area for him. I'm sure he didn't plan on moving but I hope he likes his new home.

Re: Funny other animal stories

Not a particularly long story but we have a burrowing owl who likes to play dead. She will just drop off the perch onto he back and lay there pretending to be dead. I usually say to her then come on get up you silly bird' and she will just hop back up onto the perch and act like nothing happened. She did it on my hand once, just laid down on my arm on her back pretending to be dead. The kids all find it hilarious but it scares the life out of me still every time.

Re: Funny other animal stories

SO many.... my favorite tho:

Quick backstory, my mutt is a bit of a chit hound, so if he's left un-watched he tends to help himself to the fudge vending machines.

So I'm sitting alone at home, on the computer, headphones on, playing a video game. I would tend to make Spot lay down on the floor behind/beside me, just so I can keep an eye on him. Well, I'm there for probably 30-40 minutes, and in the middle of my game I notice the dog gets up, rather quickly, and looks around, looks at me, then proceeds to walk into the kitchen and go to his kennel/cage. I thought nothing of it, since there was no food out, nothing to get into, and I just figured he was tired.

For about 10 seconds.

Then the most God-awful, stomach wrenching, foul sewage smelling odor did a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick to my face.

No, he didn't take a dump.

He apparently ate ?something? that apparently gave him REALLY bad gas. My dog crop-dusted me and left the room.

He's a dink.

Re: Funny other animal stories

Well, I have a story about my lizard, Dobbie, who is a beaded dragon.

Once I told him that Christmas was coming as it was close to the holiday. Well, Dobbie looked out the window as if he thought Christmas was a person coming up the driveway! And then he looked at me when I started laughing as if to say: "That was a dirty, rotten trick, mom."

you ain't never had a friend like these

Animals are not decorations, but beautiful, living beings with lots of love to give.

My wife eventually came home, pulled the drawer all the way out and grabbed him/her with tongs and tossed it outside. I was hiding in the bedroom the whole time.
We actually raised a trio of baby possums for awhile after someone asked us to take them when their mother was killed on the highway. They weren't far from being on their own anyway so it was a short stay for them. They are pretty funny little things, they sway back and forth hissing as if to say "Stay back, I'm big and bad!" when they are anything but. There are no close rehab centers and I have cousins who run one but it's the next state over from us-so we finished them out ourselves. They were funny, all bluster and no fight.

Re: Funny other animal stories

I grew up mostly in a smallish part of extreme southwest Miami Dade county that's primarily agricultural/agri-business, and on the edge of the Everglades. I have wild critter stories I could tell for days.

My favorite one, though, is not from my childhood. I have a brother that's about six months younger than my youngest son. One day I was at my parents' house and my kids and my brother were outside playing, and by playing, I mean mostly digging for worms. At some point, my brother comes running into the house shouting "Bea!, Bea!, look at this REALLY BIG worm I found!" Now, my mother has a severe phobia of snakes. She was in the next room over and my brother was hell bent to go show her the really big worm. I had a delicate operation to slow down a four year old without raising my voice and without alerting my mother to the fact that there was now a snake in her house.

The next question, of course, is how on earth did he catch that thing. They're not called "little black racers" because they're slow.
