    Default So Kudzu is Wildlife. Did not Know That.

    Not surprising that wildflowers are classified as wildlife, but kudzu, Johnson grass, etc. ? Could've fooled me.

    Definition of Wildlife

    Merriam-Webster
    Living things and especially mammals, birds, and fishes that are neither human nor domesticated

    The Free Dictionary by Farlex
    Wild animals and vegetation, especially animals living in a natural, undomesticated state.

    Here are some presentations at this year's Wildlife Wilderness Week of the wildlife fauna variety. With the possible exception of snakes, notice the absence of any topics on water-dwelling types, most notably the fish themselves, or even, sorry to bring it up, otters. Although it was one I didn't get to attend, it may be kudzu was covered in the "Watching Wandering Wildlife" class.

    JF,

    Isn't kudzu is an invasive introduced way back when they didn't know how fast it would spread?

    Yeah but like so many things.... They assumed they could control nature.
