----- Justin R 22.12.10 15:44


----- Tatiana Hernandez 22.12.10 14:42

The FLYING SQUIRREL! Such a fantastic animal! They have a way to glide across the forest canopy from tree to tree using excess skin connecting the outter side of their arms and legs together, like a person with a hang glider. The flying squirrel eats anything and everything when they are hungry kind of like some people I know!

----- Aleigha 22.12.10 13:20

----- curtis 21.12.10 07:14

I’d have to say my favorite forest animal is a puma.

----- Morgan 21.12.10 06:24

my daughter would love these! i think my favorite woodland creature is the deer. so graceful.

----- shawn joy 21.12.10 05:03

The rabbit is absolutely adorable! But I feel about rabbits the same way I do about lambs: I love them and wish I could keep one as a pet, but if I ever got hungry I would slaughter it because it’s flesh tastes delicious :]

I, Mari, had a little lamb…
‘Til I got hungry!

----- Mari Baquir 21.12.10 03:09

Ayeaye. It has really long fingers. And they have sticky stuff on their fingers. What’s not to love?

----- Ray 20.12.10 21:47

Not sure if this counts but my favorite forest animal is Tortoro haha. But if I had to choose a nonficticious one, I’d have to say the squirrel. Come on bookends!!!

----- Lance Chiu 20.12.10 18:34

Hoot hoot!

----- Mia 20.12.10 18:23



----- Jan 20.12.10 15:20

----- Amanda T 20.12.10 13:32

----- Jessi 20.12.10 12:24

The one who’ll lead me to the five-star hotel.

----- Bontemps 20.12.10 11:56

R.O.U.S.! and foxes :-)

----- Anna 20.12.10 11:20


----- Ryan 20.12.10 10:51

it would have to be a deer - they are graceful and peaceful

----- marsha 20.12.10 10:15

Favorite forest animal has definitely got to be the timeless, the classic, but never equalled: wolf.

----- Stacy B. 20.12.10 10:12

raccoons of course!

----- elena 20.12.10 09:33

Monkeys rock! They are super cute and playful and are the theme for my daughter’s nursery.

----- Angie 20.12.10 09:16

I love the hedgehogs that come visit my yard! But the owls on these baby items might have them beat!

----- Emma 20.12.10 09:14

It used to be a northern red squirrel…with all his cuteness and spunkiness and so much tinier than the gray squirrels. Then he moved into my attic because it was cold and he’s not as awesome now. He chews up wires and insulation…But I guess he technically is now my favorite attic animal.

----- Jessica 20.12.10 08:44

I love rabbits because they are so fast and adorable with their little noses…awww…=3

----- Elaine 20.12.10 08:35

Owls! They noises they make are great and both of our kids first words.

----- Ella 20.12.10 08:32

I love the innocent, big-eyed deer. Also, my brother just announced yesterday that his wife is pregnant with their first child and my first niece or nephew. I would love to give this to them for Christmas!

----- Courtney 20.12.10 08:21

Gotta love the ape!

----- Chris Wilkinson 20.12.10 08:03

Are the african plains considered a forest.. because my favorite animal is a giraffe!!… hmm.. actual forest animal… deer.. but not bambi.

----- Tran 20.12.10 07:46

I like any forest animals that kill mosquitoes.

----- Adam Edwards 20.12.10 07:26

My favorite favorite forest animal is the sleeplees owl

----- Liliana 20.12.10 06:54

don’t judge me but i like the possums!!

----- ricardo garza marcos 20.12.10 06:50

It’s a tie- between the hedgehog and the fox- foxes because they are wise and clever and have red hair, like me. Hedgehogs cuz they “just won’t share the hedge.” (swiped that last bit from a t-shirt that made me giggle)

----- Betsy 20.12.10 06:48

I can tell which one I don’t like: squirrels. They’re plotting something insidious.

----- Don Taylor 20.12.10 06:13

My favorite forest animal is the box turtle. They’re so ludicrously out of place plowing through the leaves and bracken - like little tanks.

----- byron 20.12.10 05:53

i love those foxy foxes.

----- sarah 20.12.10 05:42

Forest Hobos- elusive and possibly dangerous

----- tony f 20.12.10 05:30

A gruffalo!! Just been blessed with a God-daughter who would love this!

----- Ollie 20.12.10 05:22

i looove love love love me some black panther and white tiger!

----- Kenny Garcia 20.12.10 04:51

My favorite forest animal is the deer! They look so lovely and innocent!

----- Camila F. 20.12.10 04:08

My favourite forest animal is the squirrel. However, my heavily pregnant wife says Owl. I was going to point out this isn’t an animal but as she’s 5 days over our due date so didn’t want to stir the hormonal hornets nest.

----- Adam King 20.12.10 01:59

Moose :)

----- Ashley 20.12.10 01:51

fox and owl

----- morgane 20.12.10 01:04

hedgehog - since i’ve first feed it when i was a kid

----- martins 19.12.10 23:26

I discovered this site by mistake when I had been going through Bing

----- Larissa Amesbury 19.12.10 23:24

Pandas are awsome, plus black and white are my favorite colors.
P.S: My one year old son would love these!

----- David 19.12.10 21:40

I love all forest creatures, but an opossum stole my heart one morning during a walk-of-shame, taking a shortcut through the woods. Approaching me from a distance, I saw the possum walking directly towards me… doing the same thing! Since they’re nocturnal, he/she looked just as woozy and wobbly as I must have. It walked right past me as if it didn’t notice me.

Possums are not cute in person.

----- Jane 19.12.10 20:16

My favourite forest animal is the common twoyearoldis, or the feral two year old child. Nigh on impossible to tame, they are not a likely candidate for domestication. They are known for their wild eating habits, frenzied outbursts and of course their well known call; a short and sharp “mine! mine! mine!”. Although undoubtedly a wild animal, I do have one and I love him to bits.

----- Amy 19.12.10 20:12

My favorite forest animal is probably a tie between owls and raccoons :) can’t resist that ninja-mask face!

----- Sam 19.12.10 19:28

The elf, of course. ;-)

----- Sandra 19.12.10 19:10

Anything fuzzy. Oh, and owls.

----- Alejandro 19.12.10 17:43

Seeing that I am from Malaysia, I have to give props to the man of the Jungle, the Orang Utan!

----- Gary 19.12.10 17:40

Owls are my favorite!

----- Jessica Duvall 19.12.10 16:31

----- Michal 19.12.10 14:10

Right now it seems like everyone is int owls, but I think foxes are going to be the next big thing.

----- Lauren 19.12.10 13:53

The badger is my favorite woodland animal, it looks so cool and gives me the impression that it is always chilled out.

----- Luuk Langenhoff 19.12.10 13:26

Hmm…my favorite forest animal would have to be the Golden Eagle. They are gorgeous, gigantic birds and so majestic! I had the privilege of living in an area during high school where I got to see them mate and fly around above us. I even had one sitting on the road in front of me while driving down our mountain/hill, and it flew really low to the ground in front of the car for a good 1/4 mile! Amazing!

----- Catherine Chandler 19.12.10 12:57

Favorite forest animal = owl but of course!

----- Aaron 19.12.10 12:40

It may be boring, but we have a little herd of deer in our small forest, and they are my favorites.
