    Re: Unexpected Wildlife of Disneyland

    I recall a year that a great blue heron spent a couple of weeks in one of the trees in front of the castle.

    Re: Unexpected Wildlife of Disneyland

    The other day I had two cast members tell me about the hawks--one saw one fly over Main St. with a big fish in its mouth and the other saw one swoop down and grab a baby duck. He also saw a duck catch fire during Fantasmic. I once saw a mother duck and babies swim past just before the dragon, but they were out of the way before the fire (thank goodness).

    I remember the first time we went to WDW a few years ago and we saw ibis everywhere! That was surreal, because I'd grown up in Disneyland Park and the birds were limited to swans and very happy little sparrows.

    Saw a tabby launch from a bench in DCA into some bushes and came out with a sparrow in it mouth. Very impressive ambush.

    Over the years we've had several threads on the cats of the resort.

    Re: Unexpected Wildlife of Disneyland

    Anyone got a picture of the big scary bird that lives in the Jungle Cruise? He likes to eat baby ducks. I've never been able to get a shot of him.

    Junebugs, roaches, mice...
    cats, possums, raccoons...
    fairly large lizards, turtles, fish, crawdads...
    Egret things, hawks, crows, giant ravens, many kinds of ducks...
    I've seen it all! I remember reading about the coyote found at the hotel.
    Even seen the bedbugs...
    My dad is a biologist who often consults regarding vertebrate pests. I definitely think the parks don't have a very good handle on their pest control. He had some colleagues who used to consult and plan for the parks in that area a couple decades ago, but who no longer do that, and from what they've told him, they thought the parks just kind of gave up on it.

    You have got the lovely things like baby ducks, big egrets, turtles, and some even enjoy the junebugs (they freak me out), but then you have to draw the line for things that are considered vermin because they carry diseases.

    Obviously, DisneyFan28 hasn't been down South much! Land of real fireflies and cicadas. First time I saw one (being from California), I thought it was the biggest horsefly on the planet.

I personally have researched it and have seen all these for myself over the years. When I asked horticulture how they got there they informed me that its the ducks! The ducks go to parks and game reserves around SoCal and they walk through the eggs of these different animals like turtles and fish and when they land in the water in the park, the eggs release and hatch and from there the population grows naturally.

    I can accept the ducks and birds bring in eggs of fish that lay eggs, however mosquito fish don't lay eggs but give life birth, and I dont know of any turtle species where the eggs would be small enough to get stuck to a bird, and most turtles burrow their eggs.

    My guess with turtles as is common in public ponds, is people had pets, snuck them in and released them. If Disney was smart they would be stocking the ponds with mosquito fish to reduce the flying pests presence in the park.

    Re: Unexpected Wildlife of Disneyland

    I know of a certain kind of wildlife, that enters the park in the morning, happy and glad to be there. But, they evolve throughout the day (due to lack of sleep) to loud, obnoxious, crying animals that just want to go home.

    I believe they're called kids.
    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.

    They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based onÖ if something is new, I reject it immediately because itís frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

    What kind of minnows are in the park? Do they grow to full sized fish?
    397 or 406 miles too far from DLR, depending on who you ask...

    I remember that place been right off the 5 freeway, on Artesia Blvd. I particularly remember the Dove & Deer cages, were you could buy feed from a machine, and feed the Doves & Deer.

    I know its off topic, but does anyone remember the alligator park that use to sit next to Knott's.
