Mammnals In The Wild

Just to see how well you know the wildlife of your nation (The US) I have listed nearly all the mammals which occur in the US below' It is not a perfect list because I have not listed bats, whales or a few other unusual forms of Mammalia and have combined twenty or thirty mice and rats into just "mouse" and "rat". How about skimming through the list below and telling me by post below how many of the mammals below you have seen IN THE WILD.
Zoos don't count. Then post that number. Since I used to do zoological population survey work my count will probably be larger than most . It is thirty for me out of the 55 categories. What is your number?


MAMMALS OF THE US:

opossum, mole, shrew, armadillo, polar bear, black bear, grizzly bear, Alaskan brown bear, wolf, coyote, fox, ocelot, mountain lion, lynx, bobcat, raccoon, coatimundi, ringtail cat (cacomistl), marten, fisher, weasel, ferret, mink, wolverine, otter, skunk, badger, seal/walrus/sea lion, manatee, porcupine, beaver, nutria, muskrat,aplodontia, vole, lemming, gopher, marmot, woodchuck, squirrel, chipmunk, prairie dog, rat, mouse, cottontail rabbit, jackrabbit, javelina (peccary), e3lk, deer, moose, caribou, pronghorn antelope, bison (buffalo), bighorn sheep, mountain goat.

Seeing them in the wild on TV doesn't count. Eyeball only.

How about posting how many of those you have seen in the wild
Those in parentheses are just explanations of the names preceeding them.

Scoring:
0 to 10--you need to get out more
10 to 20--you are observant
Over 20--you are a damn wildlife expert.

Does dead on the side of the road count as "in the wild"?

Umm... I think about 11. A couple I'm not sure of, especially since I wouldn't know some of these if I saw them.

It is a lot like a miniature leopard. It is bigger than a house cat but smaller than a jaguar. Ocelot is what I'm talking about. Very rare in the US, but occasional strays come into Arizona and Texas from Mexico.

Of course Canada counts--why else put in the lemmings. Although we have lemmings in a few northern states.

43 is a fantastic score Cal. How about listing the 12 you have NOT seen?

The mink probably doesn't really count because it was dead, smooshed on the side of the road.

Hi Oxsan,
On my rare trips to the US I have seen a racoon (is this a subspecies of something on your list) and also humpback whales off the coast of Boston (does this count)? The whale watching is something that I have wanted to do all my life and I have to say it was pretty fantastic, and not something you should leave off your list of US prize wildlife.

16. Of course, I thought woodchucks and prairie dogs were the same, and that bobcats and mountail lions were the same.

Over 20--you are a damn wildlife expert.

Repertoire rather limited, though.

I saw the biggest beaver I've ever seen in my life the other day right in the shadow of downtown Minneapolis in the Mississippi River. It was sittin on a half-submerged tree trunk chewin the bark off of a limb about as big around as my thumb. It was as big as a medium-sized dog and was unperturbed at all the folks standin on the bridge overhead talkin to it. Looked like a cross between my German Shepherd and a rat.
