While Northwestern may not be best known for its lush flora and fauna, it has its own unique array of wildlife, from devious squirrels to vicious rabbits, sensual skunks and opulent Canadian geese. See if you can spot (and click) some of the stranger animals in each of these locations.
1. Squirrel with Pizza
Spotted by Aili Simpson near Dearborn Observatory
Squirrels are all too common on this campus, but it's not every day you see one eating a slice of pizza. Maybe this one was heading to the observatory after grabbing a quick bite at Sarge.
2. SPAC Deer
Spotted by Lucas Kaplan near SPAC
Why did the deer cross the road? Because it was arm day! Or... was it leg day? Do deer have arms, or just 4 legs?
Spotted by Nathanial Ortiz by the Arch
March through the Arch is no longer exclusive to freshmen! And in case you were wondering what that smell is over by Bobb ... it's skunks. Definitely skunks.
4. Rampant Rabbits
Chased Tanisha Tekriwal by East Fairchild
Slow and steady wins the race, except when you're being chased by rabbits. In that case you better RUN!
5. Coyote (?)
Spotted by Kristen Waagner between Kresge and the Fairchilds
Although she personally wasn't sure if it was real or a manifestation of her emotional state, based on inside info from other sources we’ve unfortunately concluded that coyotes are in fact on Northwestern’s campus.
