Come join us in celebration

Today, March 3, is World Wildlife Day—a day, its website says, “to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants.”

So, what’s your favorite wild animal or plant, and why—whether in Ohio, North America, or anywhere on the planet? Write your answer in “Leave a comment.”

Me, I’ll keep it close to home and split my vote for two locals—the familiar eastern fox squirrel and the stolid, beatific American toad, the first wild animals I got to know well as a kid growing up in the suburbs.
