So many beautiful animals to choose from but being a horse lover, I'd suggest including Hidalgo

Thank you. This is a great one. I'll see if I can find one with no text but, if not, a little text is ok. I'll check out the film's photo gallery, too. :)

I love that one, too. That film, Kedi, is so good, like nothing else out there, and chalk-full of amazing images, great insights from people about cats and the city in which they live together, and powerful, as well as hilarious, footage of cats doing their thing.

Thank you, so much, Joe. I added then removed the birds because in a small poll-size box, it looked like just a blur and not a particularly artistic blur, lol. I added the others, though (that tiger: wow, how beautiful) and the photo gallery of 'Life of Pi' was like a treasure trove. 'Much gratitude.

I thought the same about birds, unfortunately the image looks pretty bad but it would have been very interesting in this poll

Oh my gosh, these are so good. Thank you, Narnia. The photo of the wolf from 'Alpha' is a great photograph and that's what I wanted for this poll: great pictures of animals that were also exquisite photography. That one capured both.Oh, and the tiger from 'Two Brothers' Is so beautiful that it's heartbreaking; that tiger's expression exhibits so much awareness, depth, and emotion. I've rarely seen that much expression from any creature, including human beings. It's not what you expect from a big cat, especially when there cubs aren't around. It took my breath away. 

And that smaller bear is just adorable. :)

I'm excluding animation, though, so I didn't include the sabertooth. The others were all added, though, and among my favorites. What a world and how empty and blank it would feel without non-human animals. These images of yours drive that home, wow.

You're welcome, ruby.
I'm not Narnia, but I do like animals, too.

Oh my gosh, Breu, I knew that was you. I think I had just left Narnia a post on another thread and the name was in my brain. Please forgive me. 

Elephants are so smart and when I was an undergrad, I helped a professor do research on helping elephants to mate in captivity. They're so smart and the smarter the animal, generally the less that they mate in captivity. It's so important for the species, though, that they mate in captivity because they're so close to extinction in the wild. The point of all of that is that I'm definitely going to use this photo as long as it translates to the little boxes that we have for poll images. 

Btw, did you know that elephants have culture? 'Fascinating, no? As far as biologists and zoologists know, the elephant is the only land mammal, outside of the great apes, including humans, of course, that have culture. I'm not sure what is known about birds or sea mammals. And elephants are matriarchal, which rocks, lol. Ideally, I'm a fan of fraternity/sorority over patriarchy or matriarchy but I'll take what I can get. :)
