Worst animals

Postby PENK » 13 Sep 2018, 20:09

Animals. They're everywhere. There may even be one near you!

Some animals are great. We all love to pet a guinea pig or frolic in the sea with a dolphin. Who doesn't get a thrill hearing David Attenborough empathise with a sprinting leopard? Cows provide us with milk, cheese and other such delights. There are some monkeys who can count to 136, talk on the phone and beat a computer at Operation!

But not animals are nice. Some of them we could quite easily do without. I've taken the liberty of listing a bunch of shitty animals here. Your task is to choose the biggest pests, the worst nuisances, or the most plain pointless and annoying.

Blue whales. They take up way too much space.

What are they going to do? Walk out of the water and crush us all? The last time some stupid animal tried coming out of the sea they turned into us, and if Blue whales try it they'll just turn into giant, fat, immobile people that we could just go up to and take a bite out of anytime we felt like it.

Shark
Wasp
Rat (I've had to catch too many of these(
Slug
Termite (They can wreck a house or anything wooden for that matter)

I grew up and lived in houses that are semi-rural and near water, which means animals, and mean rats. There is hardly anything worse than hearing rats scratch and run in the walls of your house. It's creepy.

Interestingly, the only venomous mammal in existence.

You'd think the platypus looks weird but there are some weirder animal concoctions living on Madagascar.

I would vote mosquitoes too but somehow I find it kind of impressive that this little bugger has wiped out millions of humans.

Cats and dogs are shitty?! No.

Sharks are cool. Rats are quite intelligent and can make lovely pets. And what's wrong with foxes?

I voted for wasps, mosquitos, ants (even tho they're fascinating), roaches, and Other, which would be a honey badger. Apparently they're like the most vicious animal on the planet, and can take down much larger animals. Yikes.

I spend most of my time outdoors for both work and leisure and these are the biggest pain the arse:

Wasps - They sting for fun and can be really aggressive. I pretty much get stung every other week by walking into a nest which are often at knee height in the grass. Stupid place to put a nest if you ask me.

Dogs - the half wild unleashed dogs that roam the villages of Hong Kong can be very aggressive and intimidating. I don't mind admitting that they scare me half to death sometimes and have to arm myself with a big stick if I expect to encounter them. Elsewhere in Asia dogs in villages are typically very docile and often just spend their life sleeping, but in HK they seem to have been bred to attack anything that moves.

Mosquitoes - they can be everywhere at times and relentless in their thirst for your blood. They have nasty diseases too and there was a outbrek of Dengue fever recently

Ants - certain species are insanely aggressive with nasty bites and the ground can be crawling with them if you stand still for too long. Fire ants and these weaver ants are the worse
Image

Cockroaches - horrible things that get everywhere no matter how clean you keep a place. I often encounter them on night time toilet visits. You think your home is cockroach free but they come out at night when you're asleep *shudder*

There are plenty of nasty venomous snakes here but they keep themselves to themselves and are rarely an issue and they keep down the rat population

Local spiders can be a pain as they make huge webs across paths for you to walk into, but I like the spiders themselves, they are fascinating creatures.

Bastards.
