What's the most horrifying/disturbing creature on Earth? (Other than morbidly obese humans)
My personal choice is Bot Flies. Those things are disgusting and can burrow into your brain as an added bonus. Look them up on YouTube and never sleep again.
Sadistic, sociopathic humans; callously indifferent humans; overweeningly egocentric humans; and humans whose behavior, ethics and/or souls are auctionable without reservation to the highest bidder.
True. But what about sea cucumbers? They regurgitate their own entrails as a defense mechanism.
I've experienced this first hand. It wiped out my aquarium.
You should really rethink about mobidly obese humans. You don't know what their medical situation is and most times it isn't their fault. You are not one to judge others as you have your faults too.
I agree Sarra. Gluttony is not the only reason people become overweight. I know some overweight people who gained weight after losing mobility or who were otherwise unable to move around or exercise.
Exactly, Hypenbird! Since I broke my ankle and was unable to walk or move around for 5 months I've gain 20 lbs even though I cut way back on my food intake because I didn't want to gain weight.
I agree Sarra and Brenda! Andy, the way you word your question is truly uncalled for. You obviously have a problem with overweight people but seriously, you could have left out what is in parenthesis. It's cruel.
Pugs! I can't stand them. It was wrong for humans to create such a sickly disgusting dog for their own amusement!
I would have to go with slugs. I'm sure they serve some purpose, but those things make me sick...and I'm a person who has absolutely no problem with snakes, tarantulas, spiders, etc. I liked the answer about sociopathic humans though, that is a good one as well.
I believe that the most horrifying/disturbing creature on Earth is humans. Not just any single human, but us as a whole. Sometimes when I think about all that we do (to each other, to the Earth, and to fellow creatures we share the land with) I am ashamed. Yes, I know there are some very good people out there, and we do some good things sometimes. But we are very selfish and destructive. It scares me.
C'mon people - get off the human thing - there are much worse creatures that don't have any "very good members"! lke the mongolian death worm

Yeah, the human thing is overplayed. I should have said, "other than any humans"
Andy, really? Is it necessary to do the "fat" thing? It was not necessary to the question at all.
The most horrifying creature on earth would be the Sydney funnel web spider for me. Hate the idea of them.
The other most horrifying creature would be a human being that has so little compassion for other humans that they degrade, or humiliate them because they are different: fat, thin, tall, short or anything that doesn't fit into the that person's idea of normal.
Well, as a morbidly obese human, I would have to say judgmental people that hide behind the anonymity of the internet.
Geez, try to add a little levity and all the serious folks come out to form an angry mob! I miss Twinkies just as much as the next guy and mean no harm....it's jooooookes, not an open forum for a debate about poor taste and America's health issues. Jokes. You either laugh or ya don't, and move on.
It is not funny making fun of over weight people.
Perhaps. But there is a HUGE niche market for doing just that. Even fat comedians do it. My point stands that jokes is jokes.
That doesn't make it right. You need to make better use of your time and write about something constructive that doesn't HURT.
I agree with you Sarra Garrett. I wonder if the OP would say the same if his father or mother was in that condition?
Yeah. Yeah, I would, I do actually. They laugh too, because they have senses of humor and can tell the difference between a playful ribbing and a bullying insult.
Then you need to understand that your particular 'brand' of humor will not resonate with most people, especially those who are of a targeted group. 6 people here didn't find it funny, you should take that into consideration.
ha ha! Politicians!
but I can't hold anything against any creature if they are doing what is part of their instincts and nature. Politicians however - they choose to be corrupt and cruel (most of them any way)
There is not greater nightmare than the idea of a mentally deranged human monster, with an AK-47 and 3 or 4 (30 rounds) magazines. No animal, be it a bear, lion, rattle snake or whatever, is more dangerous than the creature mentioned in the above sentence.
There are too many of these horrifying/disturbed creatures driving around in vehicles, scoping out the scene, actually, like accidents waiting to happen.
As as doctor, who have practiced medicine globally, I have seen too many of the creatures, in Africa, in the Americas, and at different times in the history of the world, even in Asia.
The better question is, "what do we do about these animals?" We know they exist, but "What do we do about it?" By the way, "doing nothing" is not the same as acting on the problem.
Hmm, so "a mentally deranged human monster, with an AK-47 and 3 or 4 (30 rounds) magazines" is more horrifying than an Islamist terrorist flying a hijacked jet into a building filled with thousands of civilians at work? We could just ban jets I gues.
Humans, they are the only creatures that can think up all kinds of ugly, cruel and compleltly evil things to do to each other and animals.
My answer is orca/killer whales. Some of them kill and eat the babies of other similarly self-aware animals like whales, only consuming their lip. They also sometimes kill porpoises and other dolphins without eating them. It is truly murder. I love bot flies and slugs, they mean no harm. And it's funny that people will say humans while they love to hang out with/ date them.
International bankers. Is there anyone that provides the world more harm than an international banker? Think about it - they fund and earn from every war, it's just what they do.
Whats that insect beast from the Amazon River that follows ones urine stream back up like a spawning salmon and does horrible things? The Mexican drug war probably produces worse creatures, though

Why would anyone strive to become super morbidly obese?I was watching a program on Discovery Chanel where one woman stays home and eats non-stop while her enabling husband works to feed her. She wants to become super morbidly obese to immobility. I found this rather shocking. Why would someone want...

A friend of mine, a nutritionist, is working on a project to get a morbidly obese man healthy through diet only. He refuses surgery, drugs, etc.He is simply on a drastically healthy diet. We don't know exactly how much he weighs because he hasn't been able to get on the scale but we are assuming...
