This selection turned out to be very difficult as this was a good exercise in self-evaluation. It turns out my interests are even more eclectic than I thought they were. Any of Africa's spiral horns were in the running, plus all of the Big Five, plus all the wild sheep and goats, all the deer...and then were a couple of really big bears, one from Kamchatka, another from Romania, that almost made the cut. Another animal that was just off the final list was a capybara, easily the coolest animal I've taken in South America. Here's the final list!
