    Again, a wonderful Thursday Things! Love it. I’m not sure what my favorite animal was as a kid, I loved most all animals, and it probably changed depending on what natural science article I was reading at the time. I read about monitor lizards about 10, and thought they are neat (I loved dinosaurs, they were hot at that time). We also got to see a huge gorilla at the St Louis Zoo in the late 50’s (Phil was his name) and that was neat. Also seeing huge pythons and anacondas at the same zoo was awesome. I’ve always liked lizards, turtles, snakes, etc. Actually dogs and farm animals. Oh heck, all the jungle animals that were in the Tarzan shows on TV 60 years ago. I guess this parallels selecting my favorite pens today, they are legion.

    All cats are my favourites both big and small — along with the raptors (eagles, owls, etc).

    Very creative idea! I have all the Pilot Metros with the animal theme….great pens. My favorite animal? Hmm….too many to name! However European badgers are very cute, much cuter than the American version. 😀

    So glad to see the White Tiger metro featured here! It was my first fountain pen after I re-discovered them around 2 years ago, but it also doesn’t seem to be featured so much on most pen blogs compared to other colors, so I’m always tickled to see it and go, “Ooh, that’s my pen!”

    Favorite wild animal as a child: Monkeys! Honorable mentions to white tigers and wolves.

    My favourite animal was, and still is the Giant Panda.

    Ditto Amy Chen (below)! My white tiger stripe Metropolitan was one of my first pen purchases, and is still one of my favorites and one of the coolest looking pens. And it writes like a dream.

    Tigers would have to rank among my favorite wild animals–but I’d love that white Metro regardless.

    That moment when all you can do is stare longingly because you already spent most of your money on the site.
