Donna, you asked for fun, so while Mark wrestles his muse and Tammy beats her WIP, I asked my kids for a little bloggy help. I have four boys- all teens- all a bit (okay a ton!) ornery.

Anyhow, I told them I wanted something special for you. So, they put their thinking caps on and came up with a list of bad apples of the animal kingdom. They wanted me to call it:  Douche Bags of the Animal Kingdom...still debating the appropriateness of that title...sooo...how about we go with:

Cuckoo Bird

The Cuckoo lays its eggs in another bird's nest and when they hatch, the host mom will feed the Cuckoos while the baby Cuckoos shove the other bird's eggs from the nest. 

Nature's Home Wrecker


Sexually frustrated otters have been known to rape baby seals. 

Yeah, he otter be ashamed. 

Tongue Eating Louse (Cymothoa exigua)

This creature crawls into a fish's mouth, eats its tongue, and then poses as its tongue and shares in the fish's catch.

That's pretty lousy, dude.


This blood sucking catfish is known to swim up the urine stream and latch onto the urethra.

That is a no-can-diru


They sit in your stomach and eat your food.

The mooch of the parasite world.


The Australian Dingo has been known to drag off and eat human babies.

This dog needs to heel.

Koala Bears

They carry chlamydia. Who would have guessed?

A sweet face- hiding an STD


They may look cute in a diaper, but these guys can be total douches. Chimps have been known to grab chimp babies out of their mother's arms and devour them.

Yes. You should be ashamed.


They burn villages and have been known to eat virgins.

Good thing we're talking make-believe here. 

Do you need a break after yet another epic fail? 

Ever yearn to relearn that writeous feeling of fingers flying and keyboards smoking?

We may not be professional Hulu/Hula dancers, but we know what you’re feeling!

And, by gosh, we are here to help!

I bet Mark was responsible for the part about the otter...

Rachna Chhabria said...

Some of these animals are really nasty, especially the tongue eating louse. Just imagine posing as a fish's tongue.

I hope baby seals know about those otters

Who KNEW? They may look cute in a photo, but then...

Geek, some tragic animal tales here, but Putin beats them all, poor misunderstood animal.

Fun post.


JL Stratton said...

Interesting facts I never even knew I needed to know. And to think, I'd always thought Koalas were so cute.

Hi Donna and Elizabeth and fellow scribes - had to read after the Putin pic - a real bully ..

Cuckoos - they've arrived from Africa .. someone mentioned they'd heard one in the fields opposite their house ...

And animals and 'things' are just plain clever .. finding ways to exist .. I wrote about a few too ..

Great work by the boys ... I hope they sleep at night .. with all those things going round in their heads!!

Cheers Hilary

Hahaha, how could I miss this one? Well yes dragons burn villages and eat virgins, but we are not ashamed of it. Humans also have ugly habits.

That was interesting and harrowing at the same time. I agree with your sons analysis of this lot of living things. :)
