A Quiz (Updated)

Kwiz season never really got rolling this year. I declare it officially dead. But here's a question for you:

Guess which animal I almost hit with my car today? I'll be back later to post your answers, but I bet nobody gets it. Take as many shots at it as you want.


So I get off the highway, turn left at the light, and from my right, out of the gas station parking lot, flies something green. I couldn't believe my eyes--it was a parrot! It flew low right out into the street, and skidded on its chest in front of my car. I swerved, but a car was coming the other way, so I could only swerve so much and hope the thing didn't go under my tire. I didn't hear anything, and I looked in my mirror to see it get up and struggle back toward the sidewalk, as a huge tow truck also narrowly avoided it. Then I could see it attempt to fly again along the sidewalk. I thought about going back and trying to grab it, but I didn't want to dance around in traffic doing so, and I had to figure whoever let it go was probably nearby already trying to catch it. At least I hope so.

By the way, this wasn't a parakeet, it was a solid green, big-ass parrot.

Alligator? I know there aren't many of them in RI, but I figured, what the hell...
Wild Turkey
A Beaver
a bull.
There were some parrots that got free a few years ago...I think it was in East Providence. I wonder if they're still out there, multiplying, and planning.
My mom also talks of parrots in New Haven.

This one seemed like it escaped from a cage, because it was iffy on the whole flying thing.
