Re: Names for common (?) critters

I see someone got speed goat in here.

Pole cat is a skunk. How about a "bear cat"?

Around here a whistle pig is a ground squirel and a flying rat is a magpie.

How about "slow elk"

or a "fur bearing rat"

Among the birds we have "marsh monkeys" and "mormon chickens" (no offence meant)

And from coast to coast in all locations we have "road pizza"

    We've got "bush chooks" (emus) and my 4 year old daughter once referred to kangaroos as "big dogs".
    Chooks are of course chickens everywhere but Australia .
    Seagulls are sometimes referred to as albino crows .
