And the US does not? Just give me one example of how Canada has more diverse wildlife than the US. Feel free to concentrate on mammals and birds, and exclude Alaska and Hawaii if you feel that gives the US an unfair advantage.

You're right, I'm wrong. The US has more diverse wildlife ... but do moose wander around in US cities?

Yes. My sister lives in Spokane, Washington, and she has had moose walk down the street right in front of her house.

Next thing you know we'll all be nit-picking over who has the biggest and best cockroaches and mosquitoes.

Wait, is this that old joke -

'what do Americans think of Canadians?' answer 'they don't'..........apparently don't often think to travel there either.

A lot of Americans who travel a lot rarely travel around the US much too. I don't understand it personally.

I do a little traveling around the US but only in the lower half of the nation where the states are warmer. I've never had the urge to go to Canada or Alaska. I don't have a curiosity about Canada, and Alaska itself - cold and mountainous - is not my thing. I live in Oregon and never even go to Washington. So I guess I'm more inclined towards the south. I have spent time in California, Arizona, Texas, Idaho, and New Orleans, and hoping to visit more states in that half of the nation.

Well that WOULD be the USA.

Canada has roaches but they do prefer mild humid environments that
The U.S. south has.

They are humongous I places like Houston, New Orleans, and Miami.

Ditto for Mosquitos, south Florida even has the Zika virus now.
