And so, by a close vote of 5 to 4, your Ultimate Animal Champion is...
the Peregrine Falcon!
Thank you all so much to everybody who participated in this event with your votes! I know it wasn't incredibly popular, but I had lots of fun hosting the Ultimate Animal Tournament and it meant a lot to me to see your involvement. I encourage you to post any thoughts and feedback you may have about the event!
You shouldn't go anywhere just yet, however, because we'll be back again soon...with the Ultimate Plant Tournament!
My oddball nominations were intentionally done to challenge people's ideas of what an "animal" is and to provide some fun, interesting information about the more unusual animals. I think I could have done a better job of the latter but I hope they were appreciated a bit at least.
It was meant to be a joke, since I figured everyone was sick of this by now, but if y'all want to see it I won't say no. I will say that I want a bit of a break first regardless, but a plant tournament would be fun as well.
