It also seems that we aren't really going along with the thread title.
Animal - a living organism characterized by voluntary movement
I found that this definition seem to best describe our thread so there ya go.

if anything, it's Fire Ants since they don't belong and are much less from this continent

Dictionary.com ooooo

Maybe they just don't have roaches in their region? Where I used to live, there were a lot of #1s, but where I currently am, there's almost none.

It's funnier this way.

Come to think of it, isn't this thread disgustingly racistic? I mean: we are bashing kittens, dogs, bears, creepy things, and many other animals simply because of their natural habits or look. Why no one has reported this to the mods yet?

@ wingdarkness

First time seeing them in actual size. No wonder people hate those things buzzing in their closets. Sure hope you stamped on it firmly enough after the pic.

Anyway, I now remembered one, pretty common animal that should be wiped out from places it does not belong to. It does not only spread diseases, but also threatens the habitats of several species and spread like flies. I mean 'rats', of course. Cochroaches are dumb, so they can be pretty easily removed with poisons and such, but rats have half the brain to tail for it when they see your feet landing.

Somehow I'm not as afraid of the big kinds as I am of the small kinds (i.e. #1); because generally big kinds = slower, easier to spot and avoid. I still dislike them tho.

I think that centipede in the vid is obviously house-rared.. and that looks like a lab mouse. So I doubt we'll be seeing it on the streets (unless of course it escapes to the street, before which I hope it eats its owner); maybe only somewhere deep in the Amazon.

Actually I live pretty filthily, plenty of flies and ants and my house is infested with tiny spiders. There just aren't any roaches where I live for some reason (Berkeley, California, USA). Hopefully, they can't survive here for some reason, but realistically, it's just a matter of time. For all I know they've already invaded the other side of town...

I am sure you are not checking the right places. At least the versions 1 and 3 should be available for disgust-searching eyes in California, generally, (I think I saw something similar to the 4th, but maybe it was just a member of another equally disgusting species).

I hate anything that's venomous. Being able to cause me death or harm while being so small and insignificant just isn't fair. It upsets the natural order of things.
Wait, centipedes are venomous to the point they can kill people?

OMG!!!.....I remember I played around with one when I was little, I think I even picked it up and held it >_<
I have no memory of reasoning other than I remember I thought its numbers of legs was funny...

Picture books for kids in elemantary school always draw insects and bugs with happy faces and smiles and...OMG those things are misguiding and brainwashing the kids. They should be made illegal.

I'm sort of....fascinated in a sort of disturbed and scared way. But I think we can rest asured they won't get much bigger than this.
The little mouse must have been very frightened when it got caught, I can't imagine how scary I would have felt if it was me. In my opinion he could at least have killed the mouse first or something.

Depends on what that 'usefulness' is. I have never encountered any African-American who liked dogs. Maybe other black people, but afaik no American blacks (and I've been there, what, 9 years...?) You betcha you know exactly why that is so.

Cats maybe lazy, but they sure aren't high-maintenance like we're led to believe. I haven't encountered any of those stereotypical spoiled fat white cats. But spoiled dogs I've seen aplenty.

I better shut up now before this becomes an argument between dog lovers and cat lovers

Norwegian forest cat is worst animal. - its big - soft - very muscular - and worst of all its so terrortial that it attacks other cats in house and other animals, your dog ect to setup its dominance of all the house. I would be scared to death to have one and have a kid of any age as well. when one of these breaks into its "I must OWN the whole area" pacings there is no tellings what it wont sink its teeth into. (almost always goes for final pinning of the neck).

Now my old cat - never did actually kill any of my other pets but they knew when he was active and he was fixed as well but it didnt stop him.

now on the funny side = lots of the posts here were insects, nothing worse than having a bug the bed sheets... lol

oh other worst animal that s maybe not an animal - 12 to 14 year old humans ......

I've always been a dog person, not that I have anything against cats (I've owned some of them in the past, and ferrets, rats, lizards, turtles, fish, parakeets, finches, mice, guinea pigs and even a sugar glider). It would seem like a cat would be my perfect pet - they leave me alone, I leave them alone, everyone's happy. But I actually think cats smell quite atrocious - I actually prefer the dog

HA! You think you have it rough? I've had an unreasonable fear of roaches since I was a teenager. One drowned itself in my glass of tea and I DRANK IT WITHOUT REALIZING IT UNTIL IT CRUNCHED IN MY MOUTH! I've initiated vast pogroms to exterminate all insect life within ten feet of my house to ensure a bug free zone for the rest of my life.

On a more amusing note, my mother is terrified of slugs. She used to make me lay a trail of salt across her doorway when she was in a more, uhh, "inebriated" state when I was younger. She used to confide to me that they only go slow when you're watching them.

I've never seen a high maintenance cat either - they're usually the epitomy of low maintenance, but I know lots of African Americans who love dogs. Generally for some reason I've noticed they always like big dogs, which means I get along well with them (I own boxers, simultaneously the smartest and dumbest dogs I've ever had - but sweet as all hell and love kids).

And I've been here for 30 years.

That's horrible, they probably taste worse than they smell... I wonder though, was it still alive (or barely like moving or something) when you bit on it?

I don't know, if I'd seen it beforehand I wouldn't have drank it.

I'm quite sure it was dead when I spat it out, of course it had been chewed upon at that point.

EDIT: Weirdly it didn't taste like anything that I can recall, but then I spat it out as soon as I realized what it was.
