Nature is a many splendoured thing. For example, cats are pretty good, and dogs are loyal to the death. However, my vote for the worst of God's creatures goes to the pigeon. Its worse than a rat because its faecies are often airborn.

I'm open to persuasion though.

Rat's faeces can be airborne if you throw them a lot

Welcome aboard, Malley


My vote for worst animal goes to the goat. They're ugly, they eat your tea-towels given half a chance, and their meat and milk are both iffy at best. Really, the beard is all they have going for them...

Greetings Malley! Welcome to the fun and merriment!

Personally I'd have to go with Ducks. Mainly becasue their evil, and if you disagree with me try finding a lake nearby that has a number of ducks in it, and then make the terrible mistake of starting to throw some bread into it. For bonus fear, try doing it during spring when their all in heat...

After the first piece of bread look up at the water and all you will be able to see is a swarm of ducks heading your way - fast.

At this point I recommend throwing the bread away and running. It's your only hope...

Welcome Malley!

Geese are so much more evil than ducks - white geese are the worst, but the grey ones are pretty bad too. I once saw a goose fighting a dog, and the dog ran away in terror.

Canadian geese are ok.

Oh, you just reminded me, the worst animal I ever saw was on "britain's worse pets". It was absolutely amazing, there's these two huge rottweillers in a scrap, obviously terrified and scared (I felt slightly bad for them actually ) not knowing how to stop, this rabid ball of fluff that turned out to be a very cute little bunny rabbit.

I dunno, the Bowel Cancer Armadillo is pretty deadly too.
Alpacas are pretty mean. One once spat in my face in Peru just cos I was trying to get a picture with it (check, the pic just captured my recoil). I got my own back though - alpaca steak for dinner that night. Yum!

Greetings Malley. Hope everything is going swimmingly your side.

Welcome Malley!

I think, in fact, the question needs to be broken down in to various different sections in order that a full enough answer can be given. I think at the very minimum we need 'insect', 'not-insect', and 'water-based' categories. In the insect category, of course the spider would be the worst but all of them are bit crap. For non-insect, the goat tops the bad-animal charts for obvious reasons. And in water-based for now I vote for eels, until something nastier and water-based arrives.

Can the insect category be further sub-divided into 'flying' and 'non-flying'? Because spiders obviously, but I really, REALLY hate moths. Especially the huge ones whose wings you can hear flapping.

Wow, this could turn into an annual award ceremony...'and this year's prize for the worst airborn insect goes to...'

Well, I'd plum for the wasp everytime. At least Bees go down in kamikaze style and have to think very seriously before stinging. I mean, why would you ever sting somebody if you were a Bee? What can be so irritating that it leads you to wrenching your insides out whilst exacting revenge? Wasps just go at you, 2,3,4...5 times in one barrage the little sods.

In defence of Goats, has anybody seen a pygmy goat? They probably eat shirts and your ice-cream too, but they are very mild mannered. I met some at Paignton Zoo in Devon.

If you were to choose a contest between a hundred animals of one breed against another hundred animals of another breed what would you choose?

Now we first must remove Elephants from the equation, because they are too big and hard.

But otherwise, I would pick a hundred hippos against any other animal for the prize.

For entertainment a hundred hyenas agaisnt a hundred lions would be a serious match up.

We can also include some advanced tactics and thoughts, as birds of prey such as the Condor, a hundred of those beasts against a hundred grisly bears, well, I'd pick the birds to win.

Greetings Sam!
But you've done it all wrong - you need to go click on the link up in the top right - you know, the one that says register/login, and then sign away your soul... No! Wait, I mean sign up! Yes, that's right, sign up... It's really the only thing to do in polite society, and virtually fat free too!

(No, I don't know what I'm talking about either...!)

Go on, now, don't worry it'll be fine!

Hmmm... I think I'd have to go for something really amusing, like 100 dormice versus 100... hmmm... it's actually quite hard to think of something of a comparable size...

Ah, 100 sugar gliders would be about right! I can just see them now, the dormice with little bow and arrows they've constructed from matchsticks, paperclips and rubber bands, the sugar gliders floating above their heads dropping stones on them!

I think it'd be hilarious!

What about 100 gorillas vs 100 ninjas?


Or 100 sugar gliders vs one ninja? Not so stealthy now are you, Mr. Flailing-Around-Drowning-In-Bats?

Welcome Sam! I think 100 aardvarks versus 100 octopi would be good.

Surely that would just result in 100 aardvarks ineffectually sniffing at 100 suffocated octopi?

Either that or 100 octopi swimming bemusedly around 100 drowned aardvarks...


Actually, I think you may be onto something here

Hello Malley!!!

This is a little spooky, but in coming up with an expedition rating scheme on the 'Odyssey' thread, Amanshu and I used the 'Mally' as our unit of measurement of choice... Obviously we were unaware of the true spelling, but still...

You may need to look at the thread to work out what the hell I am talking about!!!

Oh and worst animal is a malcontent cow (I came across such a thing yesterday in a field near Helmsley).

The worst animals are like totally humans dude! Right on, yeah
Actually, I think the worst animals are probably tiny little yappy dogs. Any species, I'm not bothered, just all little rat dogs. Big dogs, I like, and I have no problem with rats, but given we've got those prefectly good options, I see no need for ankle-biting headache-inducing balls of grumpy fluff.

Having been stampeded by cows in the past I can confirm that this is the case.

me and my girlfriend were sat in a field near her house once and a herd of cows snuck up on us.

upon sighting the ghastly blighters i advised her to strike a submissive posture and immediately put my head between my knees.

at this point, my girlfriend went into fits of giggles and pointed out that they were cows and not gorillas.

apparently, she didn't grow up reading gary larson like what i did!

With referance to the name 'Mall(e)y' - it is a spooky coincidence but as a diminutive form of my surname, its something I have long lived with. In fact, rather like Brazilian footballers who become know by one name (ie Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, erm...Alan et al) even my closest friends have forgotten my real first name.

To further the debate, I dislike horses intensely. I feel for the dog-walker who has to clean up after the dog, but what about the jodper-clad silver-spoon mouthed teenage 'ladies' that can let their horses soil our pavements. There are no such sanctions, the pile remains for days!

Also, are horses just gigantic dogs?

Me too

I used to live over the road from a stables which allowed me to spend a lot of time dedicated to the dislike of horses especialy when walking home in the dark and going ankle deep.

Bring back the horse whip, that's what I say!

Seriously though, can you imagine if that law was actually passed? So you got horse riders going around with big clear sacks and horse scoopers, every so often getting off the horse so they could go add some more fresh manure to the stinking sack on their back? It'd be glorious!

I suppose in their defence they don't necessarily know that the horse is going to the loo behind them... I don't know, I've never really ridden horses - do you know if the horse you're own is going to the loo?

Maybe its because my road seems to be on the route of a pony treck every weekend, but I just can't excuse that amount of number 2 in a public space. Perhaps I should bag it up and sell it as premium fertiliser. Or better still, to show them the error of their ways, stick to the old adage that if you can't beat them, join them.

That would learn them, and possibly get me arrested. However, if i were to be arrested then I could use the media to hilight my cause. I might start a new thread inviting other people's experiences/opinions on the extensive soiling of our pavements and highways by the local equine brigade.

I dunno, marathon runners seem to get away with it. If you get your collar felt, just tell the dibble that you're doing a quick 26

Badges, Tshirts, charity fund-raising days. Anything that raises awarenes. It could be called Horse H8, or something.

Anyone going to the TDDO gathering on the 1st October, bring this debate to the table. It needs to be heard.
