There are several animals that are native to the great upper part of the Western hemi-shire. Yes, of course I am speaking of the land mass known as North America. When looking at all the animals that we have here now it can seem like they have been here forever, but that is not so. A lot of animals such as horses, pigs, goats, and cows came over to this country from Europe just like many of your families did a long, long time ago. There are some animals however that are native to this great country we call America. One of our most feared furry friends is native to this great continent. Have you ever been camping? Well, if you have then these guys may have been a concern for you while you were resting up in that cozy tent. The brown Bear is a native North American mammal that can be found all over the west coast. These guys have a high temper but will usually leave you alone as long as you respect their space. Have you ever heard noises coming from the attic? Well, guess what kids. It was in fact not a scary monster that has it in for little boys. The creature that was probably wrestling through your Attic was none other than the North American native raccoon. He was probably just hungry and looking for a snack? That's why we see them so often in our garbage. They don't care so much about germs like us Humans do. Do you ever notice an Icky smell during a long car ride back home? Well, when you do it is probably none other than the North American Skunk. These guys are cute but don't let their adorable looks fool you, they can make you quite stinky if you get to close. When you see an animal with black and white fur it could be a skunk. It is always best to try and keep your distance! Ever gotten hungry and had a quick snack at McDonald's? Well, did you know that the beef they used could either be from the European cow or it could be from an American Bison? Both are considered beef and can be sold as such. I hope this has helped you see that many great critters come from this land. Make sure that you do the right thing by respecting their environment!
