Whenever people go on a safari holiday to Africa, you always hear about hoping to see the big five, the Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo... so what would be Britain's big five? Not necessarily your favourite animals, just the ones that would most want to be seen or maybe define us... When you start to think about it, it is actually very difficult to decide!
I am aware that the term "Big Five" was originally used for those animals defined as most difficult/dangerous to hunt, but it seems to have moved on from there and for this sake is being used a most desirable to see.
Counting up the votes on facebook, and the the runaway five were:
- Red Deer
- Red Squirrel
