Scared of a tarantula? Get a pet Wasp.

Found this interesting website that described 6 animals that kill the creatures that we human's fear. It's rather quite interesting and I thought I would share, seems like something Foxy would be into if she still pop's on.

http://www.cracked.com/article_19377...tures-fun.html

Enjoy the good learning experience of the animal kingdom.

Re: Scared of a tarantula? Get a pet Wasp.

As much as I don't like killer whales, the fact that they figured out that great whites need to move to breathe, so they hold them immobile is awesome. Thank you for sharing, I loved the list!

Re: Scared of a tarantula? Get a pet Wasp.

I also recommend going down to the suggestions at the bottom of the page. The site is full of interesting articles like that one I posted (I later found this out after creating this little forum post). And no, they are not all about animals.
I think I will be bookmarking this site haha, It taught me that potato chips were an accident :P.

Re: Scared of a tarantula? Get a pet Wasp.

So.. All I need to get rid of a Tarantula is a wasp. Then, to eliminate the wasp, I'd need a crested honey buzzard. But what do I have to do with the buzzard? Don't tell me that I'll need a new Tarantula..


Oh, by the way: I always had the feeling that dolphins are nothing other then gay sharks - and that [pink dolphin] somewhat confirmed my thought. ^_^

Re: Scared of a tarantula? Get a pet Wasp.

I dunno, I think dolphins are smarter than sharks. I believe studies show that they have the capacity for self awareness, and may be about as smart as a human 7 year old. Dolphins are also assholish---wild ones will randomly kill other sea creatures for no reason. :\

So... Like us? haha, Many creatures do so. I believe its the wolverine that hunts cobra's for no particular reason. Sure it eats them sometimes, but very rare.
We humans are just as violent lol.

And I thought the story of the little old lady who swallowed a fly was gross/weird...

Watch this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qC_xO2aN_IA

I LOVED that song when I was a kid...in fact, still love it! Just replace the old lady's part in the video, because my favorite part was singing, really loud: "I GUESS SHE'LL DIE!"

^ Hehe. So.. old ladies are the best things to get rid of flies (and other things). They should add it to the site. She'd be the trump card. ^_^
