** Some articles have described cats as not being truly domesticated. This makes sense. If your cat leaves home, he or she has a great chance of being able to survive in the wild hunting things like a furry little Rambo. Your chihuahua, not so much. [[note]]Cats are domesticated, but not nearly on the same level of dogs. Unlike with dogs and livestock animals, humans never actually made an active effort to domesticate cats. When agriculture was developed, humans were able to store food for long periods of times. This attracted rodents like mice and rats. The cats learned that where there were humans, there were mice, so cats came by to eat and only tolerated the humans. Humans only tolerated the cats because cats killed rodents that otherwise would've wiped out the food supply.[[/note]]

Also cats, being obligate carnivores, were not interested in the food stores that were attracting the rodents.[[/note]]

* Squirrels, due to their sheer determination when attempting to raid bird feeders.
* Bears. Most of them just look like big, fluffy dogs (which is appropriate as canines are their closest relatives besides each other of course.) Seeing them in zoos can desensitize people to them especially polar bears and panda bears. The former are the most carnivorous bears by necessity and the latter are often underestimated but are all too willing to protect their young with fang and claw.

* The orca is the largest species of dolphin, and it isn't called ''killer'' whale for no reason. Even great white sharks seem to be afraid of them. Also remember that the name is backwards. They were originally known as "whale killers". WHALE KILLERS. Their scientific name is Orcinius Orca. Orca means a Kind of whale. Orcinius means Realm of the dead. Their Scientific name is [[LikeABadassOutOfHell Whale of Hell]]. And HOW they kill whales? They torpedo themselves into their stomach.

* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_newt California]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rough-skinned_newt Rough-skinnned newts]]. Both are cute and docile, but are incredibly toxic. One newt may harbor enough tetrodotoxin to kill several adult humans. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvBi5Wv8-qg Here]] is a video of a California newt escaping after it has been eaten by a bullfrog.

** Now the velociraptor hatchling in JurassicPark, on the other hand, has ''much'' cuteness on board. But check back in six months or so.

** Particularly great horned owls. If you're in the woods at night and you hear one hooting, ''do NOT hoot back''; this is challenging them for territory, and it may swoop silently down out of the night to deal with the interloper (i.e., you). If you're lucky, you'll catch a movement out of the corner of your eye and throw up your arm to protect your face, in which case the talons may easily go ''through'' your forearm. If you're less lucky, you'll catch a movement out of the corner of your eye and look up to see what it is, presenting your face

** Of course, the cuteness/adorability potential of something that [[NightmareFuel masses 15 tonnes, stands 4-5 metres high, and has sharp 30-cm teeth]] remains open to debate.
