Now that we are into a frigid winter, the sim needed some wildlife. This seems to be becoming my trademark as in fall, I had a giant turkey vulture, and a huge brown owl. So the winter needed some wildlife and off to the stores I went. Not being a fan of the "static pose" one prim poster animal, I decided to look and make the choices fitting of our efforts on the sim. Here is what I found.
|Animals on the Sim|
The animals on the left are from Sculpty Creation Animals. This store is absolutely amazing, the animals are life-like and low prim. All the animals shown in this blog are animated and move in a realistic manner. The price is within range for the design and quality of the product. I love flying around the sim watching or sneaking up as if I am in the wild myself and spying on these animals in their natural setting.
Pictured above are mountain goats, elk, white tail deer, albino deer, a squirrel, and a chipmunk. I have strategically placed these critters around the sim to appear as if they are roaming free. These animals do not roam around, they have movement and are still until you come withing 10 meters. It is amazing how some wildlife can add a bit of realism to the sim.
|More Sim Animals!|
The bald eagle shown in this picture is a free-roaming type that stays on your parcel, it is sculpty and is around 20 prims. This beauty comes from Glowing Heights. This is a great little shop that has quite a few different species of animal, all look the part. The menu allows you to rez 1 to 5 birds at a time, I only rez 2 at a time to keep the look real. Look closely at this bird and please go in-world to see it, you will want it.

Check out the wildlife at these stores, it feels like a trip to the zoo for me! I cant wait till spring, I am already plotting and planning the return and addition of a few more critters!
