I love monkeys. They fascinate me. All kinds. 

Domesticated? I used to always be a dog person, and still am, but we have 4 (save the comments) cats and I love them.

foxes are cool to see

rabbits, big cats at zoo

monkeys are interesting and disgusting

Had Cincy Zoo come to our school back in Oct and they had a penguin toddling around my gym floor and over to me. Cool as hell.

probably the big cats - is there a better athlete on the planet?

although bears are deceptively fast and agile, themselves....possibly smarter than the big cats.

Big cats are bad ass; not a huge fan of domestic ones. Foxes are cool as shit. Deer and deer-like animals are pretty majestic IMO. Elephants are cool.

This, by a landslide. Dog would be second. Also love the ridiculousness of watching baby goats and otters play.

Dogs but I don't think that is point of the question.

As for non-domestic animals, it is really tough to pick. So many fascinating animals out there. I've been catching reruns of Planet Earth and Blue Planet on BBC lately.

Speaking of big cats and athletes, have you seen the Planet Earth with the Snow Leopard going breakneck speed down a mountain chasing down a mountain goat? Incredible agility and balance.

I have a new found respect for Sea Lions. Saw on Blue Planet where 4 Sea Lions herded a school of Yellowfin tuna into a cove so they could pick them off one by one. These particular sea lions needed the meal badly because they were too skinny to mate and the lady sea lions only want to mate with the biggest, baddest and fattest sea lions. Sea Lions typically hunt alone but these dudes, all driven by the common goal of lady sea lion pootie tang, teamed up and had the feast of a lifetime. It was really interested. 

I've always had an affinity with Dolphins. The speed, the grace, the intelligence. Cool animal.
