c'mon now, don't criticize the choices other people make. Remember, this is all supposed to be in good fun. My vote is obviously just randomized, idk what criteria AT is using but I'm sure he has his reasons.

I'm sorry, it's just that mosquito is universally hated by people, including me, and it kinda baffles me, but I'll be not criticizing anymore.

Lol I don't mind. Truth be told I kinda felt the same way about the coral. I know it's an important filter feeder and all that but otherwise it basically just sits there. I thought a bug, even a horrible pestilent one, is much cooler.

Hate the animal, not the voters or the game

Seriously though I do think it's more fun when there's commentary. There's a lot of interesting facts about these animals and this is a great place to post them. In my case, I don't think I'd feel this strongly about this particular mosquito if I didn't learn about the different viruses they carry in a class I took in my PhD program, which actually involved me doing a whole presentation heavily involving it. So yeah, I actually have a story about it.

I'll go in order of easiest to most difficult choice this time around. Roadrunner because proximity, I've actually seen these a few times although they're more common west of here. Beaver, partially because I think I'd have a few angry Canadians out for my digital blood if I didn't and partially because I think beavers are majestic creatures. Now the fish and the falcon... I find this tough because I'm not particularly fond of either of them, but I guess I'll go with the Peregrine. And finally the coral vs the mosquito, do I really have to choose? Coral is sorta boring and the mosquito is literally deadly, but I guess I'll go with the mosquito.

Venus' Flower Basket because I like it's alien-ness
Orca because I like whales

This was a pretty tough round overall - lots of cool stuff here, particularly a high concentration of intelligent animals (octopus, orca, kea, monkey).
-Axolotl for being a particular standout among amphibians
-Venus' Flower Basket is a sponge, which is as primitive an animal as you can get. It's really pretty though! But for now I have to pick my own nomination, even though the Capuchin monkey did have a significant role in culture for a wild species (it's the monkey seen in street organ grinders).
-Orcas are the smartest dolphins, but Keas are some of the most inquisitive birbs out there
