About This Quiz
We share this world with an abundance of creatures, some of which are less tolerant of humans encroaching on their space than others. Even animals we rarely consider aggressive have their limits and sometimes will either be surprised, frightened or just in a bad mood when a human wanders by and then nature takes its course. We have to respect the space of the animals around us and be prepared to accept the consequences if we happen to run afoul of an animal that just doesn't want us around.
It's probably pretty common knowledge these days that sharks are generally a thing to avoid in the wild. While they're not nearly as dangerous as movies would have us believe, the fact is they are apex predators with powerful jaws, sharp teeth and no qualms about biting something they think might be food. It's not personal, it's just nature. But they're not the only potentially aggressive beasts in the sea. Even a humble otter has been known to act very aggressively to humans or other animals. Turtles also have some fury to work out, hence the entire species known as the snapping turtle. But say you had to get bit by one of these animals? Think we can guess which one you'd choose? Take the quiz and see!
When it comes to pain, do you have a high threshold or do you scream even before something touches you?
