    Did you ever see anyone try to pet them? I worked as a Park Operator on Vancouver Island and had to stop tourists from trying to pet the bears on several occasions.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    I consider myself a pretty outdoorsy person, but I don't think I can deal with giant friggin spiders like that. Badgers, bears, bees, babboons, beavers, and blue jays... keep me away from anthropods larger than an inch.

    That's what I was wondering because the eyes are not pink like on a true albino animal.

    These birds are "platinum blonds".

    I saw what I think was a Grey Fox on the trail last night . . . no pics. He popped out in front of as I hit about 30mph on the DH.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    They're not that bad. They're only 3 or 4 inches across. The funny thing is they ooze webbing behind them as they walk.

    My best guess is a coyote that had a serious case of mange. Pretty common amongst wild canids.

    Bison on Antelope Island, in the Great Salt Lake. My wife is just getting into mountain biking and this was her first "real" mtb ride in Utah.

    Bison on Antelope Island? Where are the Antelope?
    Always wanted to ride there, I always look for single track as we fly over Antelope Island on our way to Idaho Falls

    We saw a lot of antelope (plus a coyote chasing the antelope, mule deer, and a jackrabbit) but didn't get any photos unfortunately. We just had our phones, no real camera.

    We really enjoyed it, our first ride there and mostly good for beginners. The ride was on the northwest corner of the island and was easy singletrack but had a long technical section of unrideable (by us) rocks. Just don't go in the spring / early summer or you'll get eaten alive by the gnats!

    I saw some deer the other day. I took a video but no pics. I was riding some trails I had never tried in Laguna.

    I missed a squirrel by about a foot. Does that count? Also, I see golfers.
