Like serperior, I'd choose an extinct animal! I was thinking of an Alosaurus, as they fascinate me so much!

Probably snakes! They are such fascinating animals and I have always been intrigued by them.

It'd probably be a wolf. I'm really interested in wolf life, what they think, what they do, how they communicate, etc. I find some information on internet, but I want to know more and more. Their anatomy, fight moves, how they prove their dominance, what pelt color combinations are there, how they react and what they do when they see unfamiliar objects and more! It's like, I want to know everything! And wolves are the only subject I enjoy learning about. I find wolves interesting creatures. :wolf:

I would study wolves if I had the chance, although I find foxes kinda interesting too.

It's between wolves, African Wild Dogs, and Hyenas! Cheetahs are also further down the list... But to study one in particular? I'd have to go with my top favorite: The wolf.

I would LOVE to study one Angora Rabbit. They are so interesting and also cute and fluffy!!
I found something on web about them:
"The Angora Rabbit is the product of hundreds of years of domestic breeding for its wool. The result looks something like a cat that has touched a power line, a cotton ball with a face, or a sheep that's been through a straightener. There are actually multiple breeds of this rabbit, and they were very popular among French royalty."
─ are you calling me a sinner?

Ah yis... I have an Angora Rabbit, he's so fluffy and huge ><

I need to groom him daily, trust me that's a pain... His name is Kuu.

If I were to choose to be any animal I'd pick the wolf or even the African wild dog.
I ran out of snarky remarks, unfortunately.

African wild dogs are also very interesting! I love their coat colors :3
And you have one Angora Rabbit? Aww, may I have it? XD

I would study a cat. They are so interesting and mysterious. It looks as if they have a plan to destroy the planet. But i have learned they don't have much face muscles but still.. I would study cats.

It's between wolves, snakes and eagles. I find all of them interesting, but if i had to study one particular i'd probably go with eagles. Because i'm really interested in eagles, how they communicate, how they live etc. Also because i already know pretty many things about wolves and snakes.

Some sort of raptor species. Northern Spotted Owls and their interactions with Barred Owls would definitely be up there. If I wanted to travel outside the US though, I may go Ural Owl or Secretary Bird. Just to see something I'm not as familiar with.

Possibly some kind of lemur? Slow loris or mouse lemur? They're hard to spot and slowly going extinct because they're super susceptible to changes in their environment, and they risk stressing themselves to death because of it (which is super relatable, lawl). If I could study them, or any endangered species really, and give some insight on something that might help them out, I'd jump at the chance.

I know that human disruption is probably what I should really be studying if I wanted to save these little dudes, but... they're very cute and small and I'd love a chance to see one. nwn

Lynxes.
Living with Reindeer herders, Lynxes are one of our most common predators to go after our reindeer. It would be very interesting to study and learn more about them, maybe learn some tips on how to get them to stay further away. Of course, they are also very beautiful creatures!
