There are a lot of people who follow a little gecko, too.

Then there's the duck people . . .

Suborder myomorpha, Mojave Desert camping, a tiny creature sneaking in under tent flap for peanuts. Finding none, tugging on my pajama pantleg

@Nat093,
It's a matter for debate: dogs and cats are treated quite well here in the US maybe more so then most countries around the globe. But I wouldn't say they (collectively) are treated like an object of a cult by most of the mainstream US population. With any large population, there is always an extreme social outlier (an individual or very small group) which treats their pets with the same passion that say the ancient Egyptians worshiped cats.

That said, we do have certain (very small) Christian sects (certain Pentacostal groups) who treat snakes as divine objects for devout worship.

The cult object animal of the United States is Haliaeetus leucocephalus, the Bald Eagle. (The latin name means "sea eagle, white head.")

In Canada, we revere the beaver Smile It's even on our coins. Well, also the loon. Which is a bird. A loony kind of bird. We have it on one of our coins, too, which we call the 'loonie. And the moose, which is both singular and plural.

The Lion and the Unicorn have always had a special place in English lore.

Mind you that was before there was an explosion in the Unicorn population. They're now a pest and you can get £200 for shooting one.

@tsarstepan,
Bigfoot (Sasquatch) comes to mind. Some people in my last home area did believe in him (or them).

Carving in Willow Creek, California -

Sorry, this isn't showing up, will find another photo (maybe the one I took) of the same carving.

@ossobuco,
Good answer Osso. The sasquatch is worshiped not as a traditional cult figure would be but kind of fetishized by a small sect of conspiracy theorists-lite persons who believe it exists and thusly need to waste hundreds or thousands of man hours wasting their collective time trying to prove its existence to the rest of the world.

One biggie is the cows which are considered sacred for hindus - they even gave the cows their own holiday.

It’s obvious every cat walking the Earth thinks they’re a god, and every cat owner secretly agrees with them.

@tsarstepan,
Cats think they are gods because we feed them.

Dogs think we are gods because we feed them.

A witch in a chatroom once said she was invoking the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet to come and get me, I put the kettle on but she never turned up.
Gosh i just hate getting stood up by goddesses (sniffle)
Mind you i wouldn't have known whether to tickle her chin or offer her a saucer of milk..

This freako is another Egyptian god called Horus, I wonder who cleans out his bird cage?

This weirdo is the Hindu monkey god Hanuman, he can probably swing through trees better than Jesus but that's about all-

Another Egyptian god, this rat-faced creep is called Set-
