    Horrific Animals

    So i was sitting here looking at things on you tube, and i'm a fan of wildlife type documentary's, and i came across some clips of Komodo Dragons. I've seen one live a few years ago at Taronga Park Zoo, and i the things honestly scare the living **** out of me, even just seeing one in an enclosure, imo they're the most horrific animal on this planet. I mean, if i was going to be attacked by a wild animal I'd prefer it was a Tiger or something that at least looked magnificent, not this god forsaken ugly butt munch reject of an animal.

    So it brings me to the question, what animal (living preferably, not extinct) do you find the most horrific or terrifying?

    Some of the things found in the deep sea freak me out tbh.

    Starts off small, feeds on what the fish feeds on, when the fish dies of malnourishment, bug continues on.

    First thing I thought when I saw this thread was 'bloody Komodo Dragons'.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    right, i doubt i'm going to click on any links in this thread. I dont want brown upholstery thanks.

    Alligators though, really, mental buggers. Can rip you apart if they want, prefer to drown you though. Sadistic, cruel beasts.


    Not many of them lurking on the Cheshire plains though. So i have to venture wasps. Ok, there small, but jesus whats the point in them? Luckily never been stung yet, which probably heightens the fear of it happening, but you can never rest easy with one of them around.

    Agree with komodo dragons... Also those sloth things with long claws. Would go ape-**** if i woke up in the middle of the night and one was staring at me or something...

    The crows that were swooping at me all day at deep mid-wicket. And squawking as they went past, just to rub it in and shock me further.

    Crows get me, not a big fan of them. Deep sea creatures also scare me a bit.

    Gah! Yeah... agree with that... ever since I found myself just off the coast of a Balearic Island in the midst of a small swarm of the ****ers. Several painful (but obviously not deadly) stings later, I was bashing some of the bastards that had washed up on the beach with something blunt and hard. (naughty that if you so wish)

    Never seen a bird that scares me yet. I do a good impression of a crow. If they ever get outta line, I just crawwwwk right back at them - beeeatch.

    Haha, i hate crows. Not only do they wake me up at 5 in the morning at home, but they also annoy the hell out of me at uni because they sit in the trees outside the library. Would shoot them, but obviously it would be against the library rules (quiet)
