Not as misunderstood as... by ThatOneKiddo Not as misunderstood as... by ThatOneKiddo
Stop saying wolves are so "misunderstood". They're not.

Slugs can be so beautiful. They're almost unearthly beautiful.

Leeches have many medicinal purposes - they can relieve headaches and reduce swelling.

However, like all animals, they can be dangerous.


Have more animals? Suggest. Suggest. SUGGEST.

Coyotes are much much more misunderstood than Wolves. Infact, The Coyote is the most misunderstood canine in America.

Coyotes are one of the most misunderstood and mistreated animal in America. They are considered to be pest and vermin to rangers and farmers and everyday they are shot, poisoned, trapped and killed in huge numbers. Coyotes are responsible for keeping the rodent population in check. Coyotes are also a keystone predators and are very valuable to the Ecosystem. Without Coyotes, America would be overrun with rats and other rodents.

Also I absolutely adore snails and slugs. I think they're beautiful and, despite the slow going, if I find them in the house or places they shouldn't be, I always put them somewhere safer.

Agreed. Any animal can be misunderstood, some moreso than others. I'll never like leeches, exactly, but that said, I know why they're used medically.

Pssst. By the way. You should totes add sharks. :3

Wolves ARE misunderstood. But so are those beautiful creatures. I only hate the female mosquitoes because once they bite me, the wound bleeds for three days strait. I don't die because it's small. But it still hurts.

There's a small banana slug that lives in my mailbox. I throw it out, but it always comes back. I don't know why it wants to live in a mailbox, there's nothing to eat there...unless maybe it suddenly developed a taste for mail.

I love bats and snakes, I draw wolves because well , their bad ass animals. I know their not rare by any means and I actually don't have a problem with wolf hunting because it keeps populations down. As long as it's not in the winter. Shooting perfectly healthy wolves then could present a problem for the pack because they need as many hunters as they can get to track prey across the tundra and actually survive the winter.

Leeches are among the most revolting things nature has produced. I've heard horrific stories about where they've ended up on people's bodies without even being noticed. Humans seem to naturally be afraid of small, strange things that can easily evade our sight and invaded our personal space. For me, leeches are the quintessential expression of that fear.

I adore them. XP
Really, all exothermic animals are more misunderstood than wolves - and quite a few endothermic ones as well. The planet is home to inumerable exotic and amazing animals, not just fluffy, warm-blooded creatures.
Mammals have as much right to recognition as any of them, but by that same token, those other animals deserve that same recognition.
Wolves are the single most overly romanticized animal on the planet. >_> Whenever a character has animal powers in fiction, it's always something like a wolf or a big cat. We need variety! Gimme a killer flea-man! Or a conch-person. Or just about anything from the deep sea. Or shrews. Some species of shrew have faces that feel like an oldschool Gamera villain.

Really, the most misunderstood animal might well be the dolphin. Happy go lucky Always Lawful Good in media... one of the only creatures that kills for fun in reality.

And roaches... Roaches are GOOD bugs, dammit! They don't spread disease, they clean up after us, they don't have pincers or stingers or spines to hurt us, even if they wanted to. Why are THESE bugs so reviled, when crop-eating caterpillars are appreciated because they turn into colorful butterflies and moths?

Mosquitoes... I will kill almost on sight, but that's for pragmatic reasons. I bear them no ill will for their biology. I'm hesitant to kill ANYTHING, to be honest.

But that's just how we are, I guess... People want to justify why they like an animal, so they'll try to rationalize some way of making it special. Wolves are popular, so people try to romanticize them as smarter than humans, demonized by everyone for a bunch of fairy tales from centuries ago, or just flat out making shit up about them.

As for me... Squamata all the way!
And arachnids. Arachnids are like the scary, cranky veteran uncle to the insect's wacky nuclear family.

I love leeches. They're fun to watch and actually quite docile when they're just floating around in a jar.

Also, some snails are beautiful, as are slugs.
