Is knowing the kind of chips imporant? I don't know if we've established this yet.

Is the animal native to... North America? Canada? Middle America? South America? Asia? Europe? Africa? Antartica? Greenland? Australia? Pacific Islands? Atlantic Islands? The Carribean?

If native to North America, which states is it predominantly in? Alaska? Arizona? Arkansas?... (insert list of all 50 states here).

Moose sounds good to me too.
Perhaps Elk?
Bison?
Buffalo?
Antelope?
Wild Boar?
Mountain Goat?
Jackalope?

In American vernacular, buffalo feces are often referred to as "buffalo chips" due to their shape and such when the sun dries them out. thus, when the "chips" (buffalo chips) are "down", i.e. on the ground, the buffalo is empty.
