What is the largest wild (not captive) animal you have ever seen in person? 

 

Moose on the loose!

 

Featherwise, I would say bald eagle. You don't realize that their wingspan is bigger than you are until they pop up 30 feet away from you.

Like others, humpback whale. In Hawaii. We didn't chase it because you're not suppose to, but we got lucky and it swam up along the side of the boat for a moment!

EDIT: a Deer... Of course, I've seen deer in the wild.

I hope the one you saw didn't try to get into your work truck, or vehicle in general! 

 

Still no idea why that deer was so... Friendly, almost. Was an interesting time, to say the least.

When something breaks are you more likely to try and fix it, or are you likely to replace it?

 

Fix it.

What new skills have you learned during/because of the pandemic?

I’ve improved my not-yelling-at-idiots skills.

I’ve seen a grey whale frolicking in Budd Inlet.

Black bear or juvenile moose.

Didn't get close enough to either to really tell which was larger.

by mass, a whale. 

 

I'm going to have to go with this as well. ~35-40 foot humpback whale is probably the biggest animal I have seen anywhere, captive or wild.

 

I've been out whale watching a few times in my life. Once, a large whale cruised right under the boat from port to starboard. That gave me a real appreciation for scale.

I once saw a black bear cross the highway but it was far enough away that I'm not sure how large it was.  So I'll go with deer.

 

In my backyard, the largest wild animal I've seen is either the large raccoon who sometimes nests in one of the pine trees or an opossum.

Largest animal, wild? Last time I was up to Estes Park in the mountains, we saw this one elk. Wandered down and stood in traffic a while, like he was showing off. Had a rack of antlers you could hang a whole hat shop on. Guy was MASSIVE. Now I wish I could find the file with the pictures in it; at one point all the street traffic had stopped and everyone was hanging out their car doors waving their phones at him.


EDIT: Ah, HERE we go!

Either black bear or deer, I'm not sure which one is larger. Those were both in my yard ( growing up in rural Vermont is good for stuff like that  ).

Largest domestic would be Clydesdale.

And I saw lots of whales at sea in the Navy.

I already answered this, but I will give honorable mentions to:

 

A moose

Some big antelope in India's Ranthambore state park. (Way too long ago to remember the species name)

A tiger in the same park. (She was with her cubs and clearly eating. Tigers really are hard to spot from a distance.)
