The reticulated python. The first pic is not a retic, but you can get a general idea of size (they can get bigger), the second is to show the outrageously beautiful colors of this snake!



And the green anaconda!

Panda bears, and Polar Bears. If you have ever seen a polar bear swimming you'd understand how very graceful and beautiful they truly are, it's a sight to behold.

I heart teh snow leopards, but cheetahs are my fav.

Pandas too, I've had a thing for them since I was a small child.

You know.....the white tiger isn't a species, or even a breed. It's a common and unfortunate misconception. People like Siegfried and Roy want to breed them, but fail to tell people all they're doing is breeding in a genetic mutation (typically through inbreeding). Just so you know...

My favorite one is a Lioness.. not a lion, a lioness. They live in prides, have big communities and girls stay in the family as they grow older, i always found that endearing. Plus, they're the real hunters, are muscular and know what they're doing. The Lion is only there to protect the pride for 2-3 years while he has control of it before another lion(s) come along.

Picture below I actually had brown up for me and it's hanging on a wall in my room

Yup, I knew that one, but I still think they're beautiful. One of nature's better mistakes, if you ask me....

Yup, some stunning results from selective breeding and mutations:




I like this thread! (Can you tell I also like snakes? )
