What would you like to be????

I'm watching CBS 'Sunday Morning' show. They are doing animals from all over. They said we have only named 1/10th of the species on the earth. 1/10th!
They said ants have 14,000 species! I hate ants!
If you could be something else, what would you be: plant, animal, insect, etc., and which one?
Sorry, I haven't figured it out yet, although my favorite plant is Orchid. Hummm, which one?

I would love to be 1 of my 2 dogs.

But I really feel like the animals got the life.

I was at the zoo the other day and jsut wathcing the monkeys chilling. me nad a freind had a convo.

who is the stupid one. we (as people) get up and do this nad that and work 9-5 m-f and all that and there jsut chilling and hanging out having a good time.

So I wouldnt mind being a deer in my community.

I would really love to be a fish. I love swimming. and get nicknamed the fish during the summer and yes part of the winter.

I hate to be cliche, but a bird. I would want to be a Harpy eagle. They are one of the largest and unique with their crown of feathers. Birds have such freedom and who wouldn't want the ability to soar through mountains and forests.

i would be my cat,thomas. he is spoiled rotten. sleeps most of the time. and the rest of the time, he is eating or being petted. i do come close in my retirement . but still have to make my food and keep house straight.

only real drawback is life span is a little short.

Yeah, so how'd you end up in the land-locked prairie???

I'm with babe - a beloved house cat Although dolphin is an intriguing idea - they always look like they're laughing and having a good time.

Well it would be too easy to say a certain plant, so I could make somebody's day happier
But birds of prey facinate me. Eagles, hawks, falcons.. not necessarily owls.... love 'em.

There was an old made for TV movie years ago about birds of prey, specifically the Harpy Eagle. It might have even been called Harpy something...

Yeah you might make someones day happier but then you'd be up in smoke!! LOL

I would say either a blue heron(is that the crane family?) or maybe a dolphin (anything that won't easily be bait or prey!)
