Outside of a swim with Great Whites, I would say an encounter with Lions was amazing.
Scuba diving among wobegong sharks was up there, as was seeing dolphins up close in Queensland.
We live in the country,and friend had bought a dingo pup home for a pet.We had between us 4 children,all playing in the yard.The grown up dingo by this time just picked my twenty month old daughter out from the other children and attacked her.She was bitten round the face and neck,rushed to hospital and few days later was operated on at westmead children hospital.A close call I wouldn't want anyone to relive.The are a wild animal and having them for a domestic pet is looking for trouble!They have a killing instincts breed in them for 1000s of years.
I had an encounter with a Lemur. It was pretty amazing to have him walk over my lap and then sit on it!
I would say it was a Buffalomare!!!!!!!!... we, me, my two sisters and two cousins, were famously known as the "Five Men Army" were passing through the fields when we came across a hefty Buffalo. Our courage soared high when we understood that she was well tied to a pole, so we did the utmost pranks one could think of like dancing in front of her, pulling her tail etc etc... and off we went to do our shopping for candies. On our way back we had to pass through the same field. Having totally forgotten about our victim we were taking a leisure walk when we heard thundering behind us and there was the buffalo charging at us. We weren't totally scared as we were sure that the rope would hold her and so were not running really hard just to escape her at the rope's end, but our hearts begin to beat in our mouths when we heard the rope, "snip".. the buffalo broke loose and we could feel the heat of her anger in our spines. We literally flew in the wind to the safest place until the landlord came to tie her up again...
Driving inside a national park late at night against parental advice, we met a lone elephant. They say lone elephants are much more dangerous than a herd of them. our driver switched Off the engine and asked us to stay still till the elephant decided to go on its way. it was scary but an amazing experience to see these magnificent creatures up close in the wild.
A shark beached itself at Sandy Cape on Fraser Island in an attempt to recover a fish head. I looked it straight in the eye and said, "Good afternoon, Sir. That fish head is yours for the taking. I certainly don't want it." When the next wave came it rolled lazily back into the gutter, and I wondered why I had been so carefree in previous times swimming in that self same gutter.
Seeing a platypus up fairly close was lovely. Also, while whale watching I was lucky enough to have a humpback come up right beside the boat (just a little tinny) close enough to touch. The sheer size of it was humbling.

Oh and once I saw a seahorse which came right up to a friend and I while we were swimming. It was cute. I also once had a small bird fly in the window of the bus I was travelling on and land on my shoulder.
A shark when I went diving in Manly Sea Life Sanctuary.
A very angry dog, wanted to have a bite of me as a child.To this very day, I find it just about impossible to walk any street alone.
I would freeze after 2-3 mins on the street I am walking, and run home.
Scuba diving - man those sharks are full on. Too close to comfort. Have been bitten by a funnel web, and was so close to being bitten by a snake too.
My husband and I were once followed around by a baby moose. So cute! Another time, at night there was a bear right outside our house. We had gone out to watch the aurora borealis. We didn't see the bear but we could hear him. It took us a long while, listening to him foraging, to realize that he wasn't just a deer. It was probably a pretty close call.
I have scuba dived with sharks (and seen them frolic off the beach at Port Douglas, not 10 metres from me), Snakes galore (including 3 mtre python in the lounge room) but my favourite, of all times, because of the crazy unexpectedness of it, was being chased by wild boar in Singapore, of all places!!

Seeing Wild Dogs on a kill in South Africa was by far the greatest experience, and sleeping under the stars hearing elephants nearby. In Australia, seeing a platypus in the wild in Far North Queensland was pretty special too.
Reptile encounters with a snake around my neck. That's all I can take.
that sounds amazing!

Seeing crocodiles being fed at Escott Station NT.

Viewing beautifully coloured fish from glass bottomed boat, off Hayman Island, Whitsunday Passage Qld.

Dream one is to swim with whale shark at Ningaloo Reed WA.

My wife and I were charged by an African buffalo whilst we were on foot in Ruwenzori N.P., Uganda. Fortunately we were able to get back to our tourist minivan in time, the driver had the engine running so we were able to escape
A moose during rutting season when visiting my sister in Seattle.
My sister had quite an experience with a bear which wandered into her backyard. She was totally unaware until she opened her front door to leave for work at 6.a.m. and found several cops milling around and telling her to stay indoors as there was a large bear in her yard. It made local news headlines and is actually on youtube.
