  4. kakapo or fennec fox

    ReplyDelete
  5. I've done the Kakapo already (http://animaladay.blogspot.com/2010/05/kakapo.html) but I will add Fennec to the list!

  6. Spirula spirula - interesting, because there shells are found on many shores but most people have no idea what animal is behind it.

    Rinke

  9. I absolutely love your blog. I am also someone who has a great love for animals (I worked in a veterinary clinic for 3 years in high school) but I have followed a different career path into art and photography.

    On my webiste

    I have a body of work called "Not Where I Am" with images from zoos all over the country. Check it out if you like and let me know what you think. I really enjoy your love for zoos and I like your shout outs to the zoos you visit. Brookfield zoo is pretty close to me. Keep the blog going.

    Best

  11. I know you've already covered the Snowy Owl - but you should check out this sweet video on YouTube.

    An angry snowy owl puffed up and in defense mode. Not to be missed.

  12. How about a Saturniidae moth?

  13. Hi Lauren! A belated thank you for the Real Monstrosities link! You, er... misspelled it a little, though. Unless you had "atrocities" on your mind? I hope not, those are bad.

    Also, am I right in thinking you have no vultures at all? We need King Vulture, also Egyptian Vulture. Definitely some vultures!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh wow, sorry I had that wrong! Huge apologies!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Amazing blog! Really well written, with love and know-how. :) What about a day for the Andean huemul?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow! The Andean huemul is online. :) Really thanks! Hmmm... can I suggest the lovable "yeti crab"?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks again! I'll have to find out another creature to suggest. :)

  18. How about some dogs?

  19. You are a truly amazing person to be so devoted everyday to enrich our knowledge. Your 12 days of Christmas is a masterpiece. To have someone like you is just woah. I'm still in high school and your blog has become a learning resource for my class helping me in my biology studies. You have inspired me to take further research on each animal. Thankyou and I recommend this site to all animal lovers.

  20. you should write more about invertebrates

    ReplyDelete
  21. More Invertebrates are on the way!

    ReplyDelete
  22. If you want some topical invertebrates (at least topical in East Afria...) you could try Belonois aurota the Brown-veined White butterfly, currently doing crazy things in Tanzania and Kenya! Check Butterfly Migration. Though I came to suggest Lilac-breasted Roller as one of my favourite from around here!

    ReplyDelete
  23. What about American kestrel? Have you done it yet? It's my favorite bird.

    1. Not yet, thanks for the suggestion!

  24. Can you please do the common Merino Sheep or any other farm animal. I live on a farm and no one seems to care about them around here, seeing them only as a source of income, these animals matter because there is more to them then just what we think about and they are truly magnificent creatures that no one appreciates. They do a lot for you giving you your jumper, your milk in your cereal, your dinner tonight (unless you are vegetarian) and your feathers in your pillow. So please, they need some respect they still breathe. Thank You so much.

    1. I've done a handful of domesticated farm species (Jacob Sheep and fainting Goats come to mind) but there is always room for more!

      Delete
    2. Thanks, sorry for jumping to conclusions i'm like that. But what about the volcano rabbit or okapi (you've probably already dont that sorry) cause they are amazing (like you ;) ) or the sulphur crested cockatoo or even the human (we are animals). Thankyou!!!
      P.S Or the Fairy Penguin.

    3. I do have some big plans coming up for humans... stay tuned...

      Delete
    4. Thank You for doing some of my suggestions. Yay someone cares. :D

  25. You should do the violin mantis or some other mantis species.

    ReplyDelete
  26. People use your manners say thankyou when suggesting, give her some respect, you wouldn't have this site if it were not for Lauren, sheesh. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  27. do the Golden-headed Quetzal

    ReplyDelete
  28. Maybe the Leafy Seadragon, Cape Hunting Dog, Leopon, Blood Parrot, and Zebroid. All Hybrids.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I've always found hybrids to be fascinating. Thanks for the suggestions!

      Delete
    2. Welcome, plus love the site.

      O, and sorry the first two aren't hybrids.

  30. That would be nice.

  31. Thanks for doing the pileated woodpecker! I really love that species.

    I would suggest doing the snub-nosed monkey. I think they're really cute. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just did one a month ago (the Golden Snub-Nosed) but I can defiantly cover more species in the future!

      Delete
  32. Budgerigars are cool. If you haven't done it yet you should. Also I suggest monk parakeets, Eastern bluebird, sword billed hummingbird and some coral.
    Thanks a lot.

    1. You know, hadn't even noticed that until you said something. I was just working on a bunch of the suggestions, funny how that worked out!

      Delete
  34. Looking forward to it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. What about the Capercaillie? thanks

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi, this isn't an animal suggestion, but I wanted to ask you a question. I'm interested in animal photography and am planning on purchasing a Canon EOS Rebel and I was just curious if your Rebel works well for that sort of thing. Thanks so much, and also i LOVE Animal a Day.
    Thanks

    1. I've really enjoyed mine so far, though I've only been using it a few months and still don't have all of the settings and dials figured out. It's a massive upgrade in quality from a point and shoot for sure. A good friend of mine has a different Rebel model from me, but she uses hers just fine for her pet photography work.
      The lens that comes standard with a body (a 18-55mm) isn't the best for close up shots, since the zoom on that is very limited, so I'd recommend getting at least a 55-250mm. I use that the most when I'm out places where I can't get too close to the animals :)

      Delete
    2. it would be cool if you did another sea slug such as Glaucus atlanticus they are very cool

      Delete
  37. I watched A documentary the other day about Chinese ecosystems and stuff. They mentioned a cool animal called a bamboo rat; it eats only bamboo and lives in burrows under bamboo forests. I had no idea it even existed. Thought it might be a good animal to suggest.

    1. You should do a dire wolf from the ice age

      Delete
  38. You should do one about my dog. That'd be cool. If you saw his picture he's like a cross between a rat, warthog, monkey, bamboon, dog (obviously), and a cow:)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I just read a post on The Featured Creature about the Spoon-billed Sandpiper -a bird unimaginably cute yet critically endangered. I found the website of the conservation project for these guys - Saving The Spoon-billed Sandpiper. I suggest you do a post on this bird (if you haven't already).
    Thanks

  40. imy favorite animal is a fennec Fox. a very long long time ago you did one on them, but i was wondering if u could do it again! i would really love it!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  42. you should do a water bear. they are awesome

    ReplyDelete
  43. Black necked Stilt perhaps...

  44. Hi I just wanted to say thanks for all the beautiful and amazing animals both prehistoric and modern that you write about. You've posted several species that I had never before heard of or seen, and I really admire you for taking the time to educate everyone (who has a care, or happens to find this site) about our planet's creatures.
    I love animals, all kinds and I love my daily visit to your site to see what today's critter is.
    This world is full of beautiful animals, and I take great joy in knowing people can read about the things that are far from their backyards, as well as near by, on your blog as well as on other sites like The Featured Creature (which I found by the link on your site I think, maybe the other way round).

    Thanks again

    Iva

  45. You should write about a Hooded Pitohui, it's a poisonous tropical bird found in New Guinea!

  47. Thank you for creating this site. -Laramie Banks

  48. I would love to get an email everyday to show/teach me about the daily animal. Could this feature be added?

    1. Sure can! I just added a "Subscribe by e-mail" section to the left hand menu.

  49. how about the manul cat (pallas's cat) ?

    ReplyDelete
  50. How about Deinocheirus mirificus, the mysterious dinosaur known only from a pair of giant ten-foot long arms and huge claws for over 50 years? Despite the fact many suggest this animal to have been a herbivore, its newly discovered body and head fits a fish-eater much better.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Actually I have more carnivores:

    Marsupial Lion, which went extinct due to humans. It had a huge retractable thumb claw, guillotine-like cutting teeth, and the strongest bite of any mammal.

    Quinkana-a fast-running land crocodile that also went extinct due to humans.

    Livyatan-a giant carnivorous sperm whale that wielded the biggest teeth of all time.

    Saurophaganax-a predator bigger and faster than T.rex that was arguably the ultimate killer dinosaur.

    Piraiba-The Amazon's top freshwater hunter.

    Kaprosuchus-another long-legged croc, this time with a built-in battering ram and three pairs of saberteeth, to bring down dinosaurs.

    Helicoprion AKA the chainsaw shark.
