Talking What animals have you encountered?

I was reading a posting under another topic about how a guy swerved to avoid a raccoon and ended up busting up the front suspension on a curb. Most people insisted it is safer to hit the animal rather than risk hurting yourself or others by swerving out of control. Now for the fun, but unpolitically correct part:
What animals (no humans please) have you "encoutered" automotively*? *Requires vehicular contact.)


1) small bird
2) squirrel
3) possum
4) snake

Please refrain from the obvious and be kind to pet owners by omitting: Deer, Dog, Cat.

A few squirrels, a fox, a raccoon, several small birds and many frogs. The frogs were on a road that goes through the Great Swamp in NJ. I couldn't figure out what that crunchy-squishy sound was, then I noticed that the road was covered with frogs. They were everywhere.

I hit a deer, a deer hit me (I saw 2 deer crossing the road, stopped to let them pass, and a third deer jumped out of nowhere and rammed it's head into my fender. I had only had the car a week too 'twas a '91 Stealth) and I hit the remains of a deer after it was obliterated by a truck on the interstate. (another week-old car. 2000 Eclipse)

I hit a rabbit too once.

No animals or other collisions in my WRX yet.

I've hit a possum before that just stood there. I turned to look to see if was dead, but it was gone. I hit him doing like 30 too.

I also almost hit a deer coming from a dance. I can still see the skid marks in the road.

Stupid animals!
