So, what would you say was the most badass animal on the planet?

My vote goes to a Bull Spermwhale. amd here's why

1. The only animal that huns spermwhales are Oraca(the second most badass animal on the planet, then hunt calfs by forcing them apart from their mothers, the only thing that can take on a pack of orca is an adult bull spermwhale.
It's so big and bad it can kill orca's with ease.
2. Their daly bread is 14 meter squid, with raccor sharp claws on their tenticals.
3. It's the only animal that can take on and sink a 300ton ship
4. it can dive down 3000 meters while hunting squid.

A sad fact is that today the biggest spermwhales are about 20 meters, but before hunting started, they might have reached 25 or 27 meters, making them almost 50 ton heavier then they are today.

So. what do you think is the most badass animal on the planet.
And before someones says Mousquito because the kill millios by maliaria, it's not about what animal kills the most people, but pure badassnes

Cockroaches. You have to be pretty badass to be able to survive nuclear apocalypse.

Cockroaches. They went to the moon.

I vote for tigers. Tigers are everywhere and you just can't see them. If they wanted to they could destroy human society. Fortunately they are mostly benevolent and only the stupid ones that can't hide themselves seem to attack people.

If you want pure stamina you have to look at the waterbear, it makes the Cockroaches look like sikly moths.

Some fun facts about waterbears

Can survive EXTEME pressure diffrences. they can live at the bottom of the sea or survive deep space.(over 10 days in space infact) it can survive 10 000 times more radiation then any other animal.
It can survive with out water
can live for 10 year with out water,
Can surivve beeing heated to 151cetigrade for short periods of time
or beeing chilled for days at -200centigrade or a few minutes at -272centigrade, that 1 degree from absolute zero.

As I said makes the Cockroaches look like wimp

Unicorns …..or not, depending.

Kayl MacLaren Inactive Member25 Jan 2009 5:49 p.m. PST

Megalodon, hands down.

Colbert says it's bears, and he's always right.

kyoteblue Inactive Member25 Jan 2009 9:40 p.m. PST

Oh no Bears !!!!!!! I love that show !!!!!!!

Tasmanian Devils

Small, cute, furry and have absolutely no regard for the life and wellbeing of the annoying nature cameramen that they attack!

Whatisitgood4atwork Inactive Member26 Jan 2009 4:19 a.m. PST

Any of the insects that lay it's eggs inside living creatures so the young can eat them alive.

Sorry, but any mammal expert will tell you the MotherBleeped texter of the animal kingdom is the Wolverine.

If you are stranded on a desert island with one, pray.


Klebert L Hall Inactive Member26 Jan 2009 6:33 a.m. PST


They killed over 90% of other life on Earth.

The skunk, of course.

The leading cause of death among skunks is the automobile – two tons of hurtling steel – because nothing else wants to mess with them. Mountain lions, wolverines, bears, even rattlesnakes try to avoid confrontations with them. And they'll eat just about anything.

I'd say that any of these would qualify:

Amd this is on the reenactment board because . . . .?

JackWhite Inactive Member26 Jan 2009 1:50 p.m. PST

Piranah. A school of them can take out an entire expedition in three minutes flat, but only after some yells, PIRANAH!

When will they ever learn to keep their mouths shut?


JackWhite Inactive Member26 Jan 2009 1:54 p.m. PST

Also like the answers Tasmanian Devils and wolverine.

If you're ever injured in Tasmanian and think you're going to have to spend the night on the ground, just kill yourself.

Absolutely relentless and will eat anything, including you.

On the old TV show The Monroes, they were terrified of the wolverine in that one episode, and they were some pretty tough kids. Even Sleeve shuddered a little when the wolverine was mentioned.

An animal that makes the volverine look like little mouse is the honneybadger.

Named by the guinnes folks as the toughest animal alive.

In one program an old blind honeybadger with no teeth was attacked by a lepoerd, it took 90 minutes for it to die, that how hardcore they are, will will aslo take on lions and hyenas and remebmer this is an animal slightly larger then a house cat, it also kills and eats poisones snakes, in another program, it took on a cobra, it got bitten, but killed the snake, it then fell over "dead" and stayd like that for an hour or two, then woke up, chook it of and eat the snake.

Pure hardcore

Cockroaches. You have to be pretty badass to be able to survive nuclear apocalypse.

actually that's a furphy, they might survive, but they would be sterile. In the event of a nuclear war, we are likely to be superseded by the fruit fly and a parasitiod wasp

Unless the parasitoid wasp does its parasitsing thing on fruit flies, and the fruit flies can use a can opener to get at tinned fruit, then neither of them is going to last much longer than we are!

@Gunfreak – it takes on average 20 to 30 minutes for wild dogs or spotted hyenas to kill things like wildebeest, whereas it would take a lion or leopard about 4 minutes to do the same thing. That's nothing to do with how hardass the wildebeest is – it's the killing method of the predator. So if a leopard took 90 minutes to kill a honeybadger (ratel) its probably because it couldn't get the throat grip it needed to suffocate it – i.e. the FIGHT lasted 90 minutes. I don't believe a honeybadger can hold its breath for 90 minutes.

Raccoons possibly?

Cats … no other animal has nine saving throws.
