What is the most dangerous animal, that you think you could kill? (Details)

Asked by MrGrimm888 (14698points) 1 month ago

I’ve asked, or responded, to a similar question.

Some friends, and I, had a debate, about if I could kill a kangaroo. One, on one. No weapons involved.

My opinion, was that, I could.

I know that I have no chance, against a Tiger, Bear, Lion etc.

But I’m confident that I could kill, most other animals.

This would be a cage match. So. No weapons, and and just you, versus the animal.

I hate to be a downer, but I think you’d struggle with a kangaroo, and at the very least if you managed to, you’d be preeetty sore by the end of it!

If spiders count as animals too, then a red back spider definitely! (Is that cheating because it’s so small yet so so so deadly?)

Killer Whale.

@Magical_Muggle Red back spiders aren’t really deadly though, the potency of their venom is often exaggerated. Not that I’d want to be bitten by one anyway… Personally, without weapons, I doubt I could kill anything more deadly than a bunny. And I couldn’t kill a bunny for other reasons.

Pretty much any animal I could pick up with my hands. I’d probably get scratched and bitten, but could probably take out something up to a 50 pound dog. I might be able to take out bigger, it would touch and go.

It’s weird, because this list has mosquitoes ranked as most deadliest animal to humans.

I have killed more than my fair share of mosquitoes. But are they really considered animals?

Missed the no weapons part

Any organism that can move solely by its own efforts is an animal.

Per Merriam-Webster: “Any of a kingdom (Animalia) of living things including many-celled organisms and often many of the single-celled ones (such as protozoans) that typically differ from plants in having cells without cellulose walls, in lacking chlorophyll and the capacity for photosynthesis, in requiring more complex food materials (such as proteins), in being organized to a greater degree of complexity, and in having the capacity for spontaneous movement and rapid motor responses to stimulation.”

I guess most people subconsciously think of animals as being mammals, or at least vertebrates.

However, I admit that it doesn’t take a lot of physical effort to kill a mosquito.

I think the size ratio of a mosquito compared to me, is about the same as me compared 10 Empire State buildings.

Thanks for answering my question! Guess I do subconsciously think of animals as vertebrates. :P

Nope. I’d fuck up ANY squirrel. I didn’t say you would not take damage, from the other animal. But. Could you kill it, one on one…

@MrGrimm888 I was joking. Honestly I could kill an adolescent brown bear hand to hand. Not a kodiak or polar bear. I might be able to fuck up an elk If it didn’t run away on me.

^There you go. Insert logic, and personal abilities.

@MrGrimm888 I am 6 foot 5 inches and 262 pounds. I would stand a good chance against most animals. Most likely they would run away from me, like a slime in Dragon Warrior 1 against the level 50 warrior. Also if I can keep my size 13 shoes as a weapon It would be even more in my favor.

^That’s right bro. You don’t need to be scared of much. I suggest you look in to MMA. You’ll have no reason to be scared by anything. You will eventually be fighting guys, your size. Once you kick some asses, your confidence will grow, to where it should be. I’m not afraid of anything. (Admittance, it could be my mental state.) But self confidence, is rarely a bad thing IMO…. I’ve been stabbed, shot at, spit on, kicked etc. But I know I’m unstoppable. Not sure thats good advice, but it helps ME, to know I can deal with ANYTHING.

Never abuse your power. But. Understand your capability. Be careful, not to kill someone, but you’re probably capable of restraining a fool who challenges you.

This world, is full of people who would like to hurt you. Get your self educated, on how to stop them. It isn’t hard, at our size. But always remember that, you kind of have a responsibility to not injure others, just because you can. You show your greatest strength, by not hurting others.

Peace n love.

@MrGrimm888 I haven’t been in a real fight since grade 9. I did join a fencing club at 21 and did ok.

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@MrGrimm888 I did get tasered and kicked by a 7 foot 4 man while crossing a bridge in Sept 2000 for no apparent reason. I don’t know if that was considered a fight.

MrGrimm888's avatar

Well. To my recollection, you threw him off of the bridge…

An impressive task, when involved with this thread. But not something that I condone….
