What is the most common wild animal in the US?
That depends on what you call an animal.
Short Answer: Microtus pennsylvanicus
The common field mouse (Meadow Vole) is the most common mammal in North America.
- Insects are animals and by far the most numerous. (But I assume you're excluding them.)
- What about birds, though? The common sparrow is pretty numerous, even in cities.
- There are probably as many rats living in New York City as people. Perhaps more. There are probably more rats in Redhook, Brooklyn than squirrels in Yellowstone Park.
- And let's not talk about fish.
- For mammals, rodents are the winners with the mouse most numerous.
- For large mammals, deer.
- Predators, foxes or coyote.
- Birds, probably the starling or house sparrow.
The kindest Wild animal was the Dodo bird. When people came to the habitat of the curious creatures, they were presented with gifts such as fruit and nuts. Unfortunately the Dodo bird is now completely extinct due to us. ---- (if anyone has ideas on a kind animal that is still alive please post here)
Most of the time they animals in the wild do not get treatment, but are you asking about the animals in the wild or in animal reserves or just in general. For animals in the wild they don't get veterinary treatment. For animals on reserves it depends on what reserve you go to. In Africa they us the reserves for tours and picture taking. But, the animals don't get that kind of care.
Unfortunately, the city isn't a wild area, so there aren't any common wild animals. If you want to search up wild animals in the city, none of them would be very familiar, though wild cats tend to enter the cities many times, frequently... The only wild animal that is most commonly known in New York City would be the wild cats, and if you are living in an area around Virginia, I'd say sometimes, grizzly…
A tiger is NOT a pet. Tigers have not been domesticated and are wild animals. Even when a tiger has been tamed it retains most of its wild instincts, and can revert to that wild instinct at any time (ex siegfried and roy tiger incident). To own a tiger in the US you must have a special wild animal permit, which I'm sure you must be specially trained to get.
it really depends on the animal. compared to humans most animal senses are better then us. But senses that are most likely more developed then others is sight and hearing. With cats there sight, hearing and balance. In dogs its only hearing, the sight isn't as good. All animals in the wild have heightened senses to be able to be aware of their predators.
