Take a photo of any wild animal in its natural habitat and post the photo here in this topic.
Domesticated or zoo animals do not count.  You must walk the wild side to find the winning photo.
The winner will be given a prize of my choice.  Can't tell you yet what it will be.
Contest entries must be posted here from March 1st to March 31st, 2008.

An attached caption must identify the animal, and a post of the location where the photo is taken.

You may enter more than one photo, but not more than five.

I like this contest. I'll get on it.
Run when you have to, fight when you must and rest when you can.

I hope I'm never in a survival situation; I may just like it's simplicity and decide to stay there.

The aye-aye (daubentonia madagascariensis) is a lemur native to madagascar (that's a town in Ontario, Canada), it's the world's largest nocturnal primate, and mainly lives in forest canopies. it weighs about 2.5 kilograms.


Uhhh... I found this in the woods behind my house... ya... that's it... I found it in its NATURAL environment... Not like that FAKE deer of Swede's... boy anyone could see that's a set up.

So do I win?... huh, huh?

And to think....., I thought you kept your hands so smooth so you could feel any imperfections in your work.

Well....., since I'm assuming this venison tenderloin braised in garlic and butter (one of my personal favs) doesn't count.......

 
then this is the best I have at the moment but I'll see what I can do about that, but it may be after hunting seasons are over, lol.

Rare wildlife found on outskirts of Vegas... (yes... I can even find wildlife in vegas) LOL

it's a couple of wild burros (left over from the old mining days and thriving in the desert somehow...)  8|



Mule Deer, Colorado (grazing right off the shoulder of a mountain road) nobody even saw them because they blended in so well.

I know its been a while since contests were part of the fun but really, waiting is part of survival, and what can I say, some of you have no self control.

Some folks have obvious problems reading the fine print. Make sure, that if you wear glasses, you have them on to read the rules.   8|

Okay, L.O.S.T. has lost self control too.
SOOOOOOO .... let the pictures roll now. :rofl:

See, I am so easy to get along with.   :arigato:

BUT PLEASE READ THIS...

No road kill --- live animals in their natural habitat please.  :dead:

No animals with arrows sticking out of their body.   :(

No zoos, caged animals in research centers, nothing from Cabellas Stores, etc.  :P

does the fact that i work at a wildlife centre count? or are there exclusions such as owners of the site any moderatorers or anyone with over 60 posts?

Anyone can enter, and just how big is the wildlife center?  Do the animals run loose outside, say on a couple hundred acres?  :thumbsup:

Oh, and Mistwalker, the animals should really resemble something close to when they did at birth.  That would mean BREATHING, maybe some fur or feathers or such.  Gravy and sauces do not count as the new wave animal hides.   happy097.gif

Did I miss anything?  I did say breathing right?  Oh yeah, in the wild too.


Let 'er rip folks. Start sending fotos NOW!   :ewphu:
