* Orangutans may appear to be docile and peaceful animals (and for the most part, they are), but that's mostly just the females and youngsters. A full grown male is 200lbs of muscle that could very easily rip you limb from limb if they feel threatened by you. There's a reason why you never see people interact with the males in shows filmed at Orangutan rehabilitation centers. They're just too dangerous.

Creator/TerryPratchett did his research on this one - the Librarian of {{Discworld}}'s Unseen University is frequently described as looking like a 300lb burlap sack... but [[BerserkButton never call him a monkey]] or you'll find out that it's a sack filled with muscle.

**They are also considered very unpredictable, attacking people whenever they feel like it. They can't swim so they just stand at the bottom of the rivers and can just pop up out of no where and go after a boat

** One of the worst examples may be the Arctic Shrew; despite living in one of the most barren places in the world, it's a voracious predator that needs a daily food intake equating to ''three or more times its body-weight''. In no small part because of this appetite, they're also hyper-territorial; they regularly kill and eat each other, but if two Arctic Shrews are placed together but they can't get within tooth's range of each other, then one of them will spontaneously ''die'', and science has yet to find an explanation as to why.

** Also not well known is the fact that kangaroos, are, in fact, [[http://i.imgur.com/TFd4GeW.jpg ripped as hell]] and not at all afraid to use it if you piss them off.

** It should be noted, though, that the European Badger is a shy social animal (they live in small family groups) that prefers to avoid confrontation and will only fight back when it is unable to escape. The badger's dubious reputation as a feriocious animal actually comes from the old "sport" of "Badger Baiting". Which, sadly, pretty much consisted of trapping a badger and forcing it to fight to the death against hunting dogs.

* When people think of seals and other pinipeds, they tend to visualize the cute, adorable circus or aquarium animals that have been trained to honk horns or bounding happily on the beach. People even consider them to be the sea's equivalent of a dog. However, sea lions are immensely aggressive and have been known to seriously maul humans, in addition to routinely killing each other. Antarctic expeditions have been attacked and at least three people have been killed by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopard_seal leopard seals]] in the past. And if they climb up onto docks, or even into cities? Don't try to approach them. It ''will'' end in a visit to the hospital, possibly without one hand. Oh, and those goofy-looking elephant seals? You know, the big ones with the silly, drooping noses? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7KsXwO6Ymw Here's a video of one having a disagreement with a parking lot]]... looking strangely adorable while doing so. Something to keep in mind is that the closest living relative of the piniped family ''[[BearsAreBadNews is the bear family]]''.

* A Belorussian man was attacked and killed by a '''Beaver''', similar, non fatal attacks have occured in other places.
** The US Army survival manual specifically suggests not attempting to trap a beaver unless you can kill it from a distance because of the grievous wounds it can inflict with it's teeth.

* Geese are ''nasty'' pieces of work. They don't look that threatening (in fact the Canada goose actually looks quite pretty with its black, white and brown feathers) but they're as aggressive as an attack dog and have one hell of a bite. Is it any wonder that some farmers use them as ''guard animals''?

* The [[PufferFish porcupine puffer]] is a friendly-looking curious fish that also happens to be a vicious predator. Yes, you read that right. Porcupine puffers (like all puffer fish) have teeth that are formed into a beak-like shape that's razor sharp. Likewise, they have powerful jaws that allow them to crack open the shells of creatures like clams and snails. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6msgQFXOhrk Here's one eating a hermit crab.]]

** PufferFish are also notoriously territorial, even the little ones, to the point where they'll attack any other fish in the same tank. Now, that may not seem like much, until you realize that they are known to attack fish much larger than themselves. There are many accounts of fish owners putting a larger fish in the same tank as the puffers only to check on the tank the next day and find the larger fish is dead. Turns out the larger fish died a slow agonizing death because the puffers would repeatedly attack and tear it to shreds.
