Here is a list of wildlife that I've spotted on my property:

I live in a populated suburban area so we mostly have just squirrels, rabbits, birds and every once in a while a possum. I did see a small snake the other day. I hate those things, glad I don't see them too often!!
Chihuahua1. you have an extremely long list of animals that you say you have spotted on your property. among them are dolphins and whales ? do you live in arizona and have some oceanfront property that you are trying to sell ?
Where I live we see mostly birds, bunnies, chipmunks, etc. Nothing too exciting except......late last summer, we had a Hawk in our neighborhood. We hardly ever see a Hawk unless we go Up North about 3 hours. So, this happened a few houses down from ours and this hawk slammed into a crow in mid-air and took him to the ground. The hawk jumped on this crow until it died. I got every moment on my digital - Here are some:
do you consider your property all the land mass across the globe ? jeepers .... where do you live ?
black bears which are in our yard frequently .... deer, possum, racoon, squirrels, fox, coyote, chipmunks, bats. all assorted smaller varmnints like field mice and moles, think that is it.
nothing stays around our home long. if the cats dont kill the small animals the dogs are chasing away the bigger ones. thunder and salty have given fair warning that the bears are not welcome in our yard. doesn't stop them though from passing through.
We have squirrls, birds of all sorts, bugs, and frogs on the occasion (live near a park with a pond).
I have seen racoons and skunks around here too.
However, in the country and forrests we have all kinds like deer, elk, bear, bobcats, mountain lions, coyotes, fox, wolf, etc.
I have seen one fox here in Boise (I've lived here for almost 12 years and my parents grew up here). We also had a few occasions when mountain lions decided to come to Boise for a visit. One about a year ago decided to come to Boise State University for a walk on the green belt (that's the trail by BSU and the Boise river in downtown Boise). Then we had a few come to houses in the foot hills.

Well living in the city we dont see much.I have seen 2 opposums,racoon eyes (not the body),although my neighbor over the last 20 years has shot 40 raccoons.i have seen 2 deer,1 fox it came right up to me.I have seen lots of hawks,1 barn owl and your regular squirrles,chipmunks and birds.
I can honestly say I have never seen a stray dog in our city. I have only seen oen stray cat but people feed it still.So I guess thats a good thing!
Coyotes, Wolves, Squirrels, Giant Jack Rabbits, Tonnns of birds, Deer, Moose, Owls, Gofers..etc. Haven't seen a bear before although quite a few have been roaming around near by with their cubs according to the newspaper.
