Default OT Does your state have an offical amphibian?

Illinois has a new reptile and amphibian.

Out of 75,000 votes cast online, the Eastern Tiger Salamander is the new state
amphibian, and the Painted Turtle won as state reptile.

Lt. Governor Pat Quinn announced the winners today, saying all candidates ran
positive campaigns

(Ha!, I can't believe the bullfrogs ran a postive campaign, I think they tried
to eat all the other competitors).

Here in Washington we don't. But we do have an offical insect (the blue darner
dragonfly) and an offical fossil (Columbian mammoth) but, depending on who you
talk to, we still don't really have a governor...

We ran a poll in NH and the dominant slimy wriggler was the
politician.

Look, I'm no expert, but even I know it must have been a "pre-columbian"
mammoth :-)

on who you talk to, we still don't really have a governor...


With any luck, gubernatorial candidates will just go the way of the mammoth.
"None of the above" is a perfectly acceptable choice, and probably less
trouble in the long run.

Oregon doesn't have an official amphibian or reptile, but we have other
official symbols: state animal, American beaver; state beverage, milk; state
bird, Western meadowlark; state dance, square dance (???); state fish,
Chinook salmon; state flower, Oregon grape; state gemstone, Oregon sunstone;
state insect, Oregon swallowtail; state mushroom, Pacific golden
chanterelle; state nut, hazelnut (filbert); state rock, Thunder-egg (geode);
state seashell, Oregon hairy triton; state tree, Douglas fir.

My condolences on Washington's lack of an official governor. When is the
non-inauguration?

So far we don't have an offical amphibian. Our state insect
is the honey bee.
