just wondering

as i was reading the moose sign thread, i was wondering what the weirdest critter you've ever had run across the road in front of you.

i've had tons of critters make the dash. we live in the country so it's pretty common.

i'll start with some of the more common ones i've had.

rabbit
rat
possum
skunk
big black snake

ok now i'll get a little weirder
wild turkey...real scary
deer
quail and babies...very cute
fox

now i'm gonna save the best for last, but i wanna see if anyone has anything REALLY WEIRD.

so i'll post later with the last few.

A lion. In Baltimore City, no less. It was someone's pet and one day it got away from them and ran right in front of our car. Luckily we didn't hit it and in return, it didn't eat us (actually, it was about as tame as a lion could be, I think it was used in television and such).

Chickens, but only odd because a chicken transport truck had overturned so there were hundreds of them.

And a cow. Well, it didn't actually run out in front of me, it was just sort of standing there in the middle of the road and only ambled off after I had honked my horn at it for 15 minutes. And they say donkeys are stubborn

Lions and chickens and cows, oh my!

It's not a critter but once I was driving downstate on I-95 when a construction worker jumped in front of me from the side of the road...I didn't hit him luckily but I was so close to...

I get the occasional racoon...

A wallaby, while driving through West Virginia (for those that don't know, a wallaby is like a short kangaroo, about two feet tall).

it's a long story...

squirrels, rabbits, shrews (kinda like mice, but with no tails and really ugly) and the occasional moruning dove ... no deer or anything interesting around here!

Well, it didn't run across the street but I was driving home from church one day and there was an emu on the side of the road. It through me for a loop until I realized that it had probably escaped from a farm.

well i just remembered that i didn't tell ya'll the weirdest one for me.

one morning on the way to work...before i'd had enough coffee...i saw this thing going across the road pretty far away. it was like flowing and don't ask me why, but the first thing that popped into my head was the loch ness monster!! weird brain fart i guess....anyhow when i got down to it i couldn't believe it. it was a peacock with its tail down(that's what was flowing) well i thought i was losing it. but it was really there!

so any more weird animals in the line of fire??
