    Thought it belonged here and more folks would see it. Yeah, raccoons are nasty critters and just plain vermin.

    The gorilla and the vampire bat are deadly? The vampire bat doesn't kill anything, ever. It doesn't even kill bugs. I suppose a gorilla could kill you, but it's not like they make a habit of it. They are pretty much vegetarians.

    Those raccoons, though, they got that one right.

    I guess if you decide to poke a silverback gorilla with a stick, he would become quite deadly, yeah, but who ever has the chance (or is stupid enough) to do that?

    Well,. I think they just mean deadly as in potentially,.. not man killers,.. I mean they have a coon and a geco on the list,.. still,.. I agree,.. I thought of a lot of critters that I would have put on that list that aren't there!
