Do you love wildlife as much as I do?

youtube is full of endless wildlife educational videos. IMO? 10x Better than any sitcom you could throw at me.

Guys it goes on and on and on... youtube is a limitless bed of knowledge and entertainment about the world we live in. I could probably post these for hours but I think you see what I'm hoping to inspire you about. It is a great break from all the political nonsense. Cheers!

chimps...

that's an interesting one... you can see that the chimps look a lot like humans, have personalites, the families live together, so many similarities.

It's almost like humans and chimps have common anscestors or something!

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

As long as you don't

adopt an "Agenda-21" attitude whereby all of the humans are relegated and crammed into the urban areas so the wildlife can occupy the rural areas without us terrible, horrible, evil humans around.

Human-life trumps wildlife...the way it was created to be.

I live in the woods and greatly, greatly enjoy co-habitating with the wildlife - my 4 cats enjoy it too.

Most definitely

We all have been doing a poor job overall maintaining the general welfare for most species of animals and plants imo. We are supposed to be good stewards of the earth.

There should be land allotted for more wild species imo. Hopefully, with tax cuts people would contribute more privately to helping our animal kingdom friends and donate time and other resources. Future generations deserve to have the same species around we have especially when we live in a so-called advanced civilized society.

Hey mods..

Is this thread spam?

Could it be bumping off videos from this page:

http://www.dailypaul.com/yt

This is the DP and not Daily Nature right?

I love nature too, but this seems a bit exaggerated.

I put it in off topic how

I put it in off topic how could it be "spam". Yes I'm in a conspiracy to spam you with beautiful animals

not spam...

I love wildlife and nature and *property rights*.

These Are Very Enjoyable

thanks for posting them. It's sad that there are so few leopards left especially considering that they are in such a secluded place. I guess there's no safe place on Earth anymore is there?

skippy

After I Moved to Arkansas

I saw a doe standing next to my car. I opened the door very slowly to try to put some corn on the cob out for her and she just came up and walked right into my house. I was shocked and pleased no end. I later found out she was raised by a neighbor and was a pet. Oh well, it was still cool to have a "wild" deer just walk into the house like she owned the place.

skippy

I have a good size yard

But still I do not think it would be fair for a deer as a pet. Yet, I think that is a cool idea. The neigbors would definitely enjoy as well I think. It could not be any worse than a goat imo lol

Cheers,

Why have you posted so many..

Nature videos in a row in the Videos forum?

Is there a video that you want to see pushed off the front page?

You could have posted them all in one thread.

(Edit: Looks like the system displays each link separately so excuse the comment. Would you mind in the future posting your videos at intervals?)

Right?

bump for youtube's educational value!

It is where I like to get my news. You have to be discerning - as if you don't have to do that with ANY media...
But crows are one of our favorites. SMART little buggers!

I've got some squirells

I've got some squirells outside the house and I love to watch them i can watch them for 30 minutes. I know all their holes and the big one who is dominant. of course i don't know them personally ;) haha , i've just seen them enough to know which ones there. We've got a cat and i watched it catch one of them its fascinating how they hunt.

I used to know some personally

I raised a couple orphaned babies. Before that, I had this deck where the railing came right to my window, and I started putting peanuts there for the squirrels. It did not take long before they would come knock on the window for peanuts which they would snatch from my hand the instant I opened the window. They are incredibly funny critters. Some commercial pointed out they are rats with fuzzy tails. Do fuzzy tails really matter. Yes, they do.
Although I sort of like rats, too, just not in my home.

Fuzzy tails protect from snakes

I read a couple years ago that squirrels' tails help to prevent snake strikes. The squirrel will wave its tail rapidly back-and-forth when confronted by a snake. The snake has "heat vision" and sees this as a larger life-form, and strikes at it. Since the tail is moving quickly, and is really a thin whip surrounded by fur, generally the snake just gets a mouthful of fur while the squirrel has a chance to run before the snake coils for a strike again.

Not good for houses though -- when my grandparents were alive they had a squirrel get in, and it chewed up all the window sills trying to get out; cost them a couple grand.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

I've raised a couple of baby squirrels also

Both times they came to me to save them . They climbed up my pant leg and snuggled under my coat. I bottle fed them every 3 hours with puppy formula. I've also raised 2 baby robins 1 of which survived to full grown. He would come to his name "Newton"( for Sir Iaasac) for months after setting him free. We've raised snakes (De Kays) and the babies that they produced. Sent away to Georgia for worms in our winter. I love wildlife as do my children.Seem to be kindred spirits.

Yeah, I like wildlife

mostly mesquite smoked with lemon pepper seasoning and mashed potatoes.

yeah, we love our venison

smoked with wood chips , but I think that the theme here is loving LIVING animals, baby animals, wounded animals, feel good kind of posts.. though I appreciate your sense of humor!I feel that you are a kind person whose sense of humor is there for the shock value even though you would go out of your way to save a dying baby animal.

; )

Agreed

... Besides the enjoyment of being in the outdoors and finding contentment and peace in my explorations, scouting and wonderings, I also find wildlife utterly delicious, particularly when I hunt and harvest it myself.

Can't wait for elk and deer season this year.

But Really , You are practical and right

If you saw an abandoned baby fawn would you not take it home to save it ? This is what I think we are talking about here. I also think that we agree that "game hunting" is one thing and loving nature and animals is another.. I could never shoot an animal but I appreciate the fact that my sons could in order to help feed me and our family.

Just So You Know...

...My original commentary was designed to be humorous and quasi-smartass due to the perceived environmental nature of the OP.

Fact is, I do enjoy hunting, very much, however, do not let that lull anyone into a false belief that I and most other true hunters, do not partake in and enjoy other aspects of nature and the outdoors.

For me and mine, game hunting and loving nature and animals go hand in hand. I have experienced things in nature and with animals that are amazing, mostly while hunting due to the far-reaches I prowl and the fact that I am near silent and invisible while doing so.

I have literally had animals come up and sniff at my body, not knowing what I was, along with many other extremely close-range viewings/contacts with game animals and others animals, furred and feathered, large and small.....such experiences most will never have.

A non-serious hunter or a non-outdoorsman/non-principled hunter would likely never understand or accept this flat fact.

I would go so far as to say that my belief is that many of us appreciate and enjoy nature in its majesty more than many who profess to be animal lovers.

If I found a fawn that was really abandoned and too small to care for itself, I would do what the situation called for. Of course, the question is very situational and has many variables such as location, age, size, etc...

Hey pretty animal i love you soo muuuucch

Ur nature and u are so beautiful... awww look at those pretty eyes and your elegant fur, what an amazing creature... BANG!!!!!!!!!!! oh man its not as pretty when im gutting it :(. Owell I cant wait to eat it and shit it out.

You...

...are a fruit-loop.

Just so you know.

I prefer organic - lol!

THere was a herd of elk hanging out in the valley between here and the farm so big they had to put warning signs on the highway. We saw them once - at least 50 of them, maybe 100. They went up a draw a little ways and we could not see the whole herd. They were chowing down on some farmers (probably GMO) alfalfa.
Sorry, but my husband and I both had to chuckle at the poor hunters who think they are "eating natural."

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

There are no...

...alfalfa fields or any other planted crops where I hunt, fishy.

The elk and deer eat nothing that God himself did not provide for them.

Thats what the guys who will find this herd after they migrate

to the wilderness of Idaho think, too... Maybe you are right, not all of them winter over in farmer's hay barns. Only the ones that can find the barn - lol!
I still think you are better off. I am just struck by the irony. We try so hard, and we wind up eating a bunch of garbage still.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Clearly,,,

...you are not familiar with the far reaches of northern Arizona where I hunt, with the patterns of the elk found here, or the agricultural situation in the state, but that's okay, most people aren't.

No irony here.

No argument, just clarification.
