Top Ten Nuisance Animals

There are good animals and bad animals. Then there are animals that really just don't serve a purpose and aren't really good at all. This isn't something most people hate, because most people tend to not think of them as the worst. But they don't have a lot of place being around. I call these animals nuisance animals. They aren't "worst" animals by the way, just nuisances you might see at least once in your life that may just cause problems, which may or may not be severe.

The Top Ten

1 Rats Rats Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea. "True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus.

Rats don't do anything except scurry for food! I used to have them in my house, not anymore. But what else do they even do? - Flair-de-lis

2 Moles

They dig all sorts of holes and don't really do much help. What good are they for our environment? - Flair-de-lis

3 Geese

They make really weird noises and leave green poop on the grounds! What are these things? I've never seen them do anything good! - Flair-de-lis

I saw two having a duel in front of my school. that was pretty awesome to watch - Stalin

4 Bats Bats

Bats don't do anything except sit in caves all the time. What good are they for the world? - Flair-de-lis

5 Skunk Skunk Skunks are mammals known for their ability to spray a liquid with a strong odor. Different species of skunk vary in appearance from black-and-white to brown or cream colored, but all have warning coloration.

They just spray their disgusting odor and that's all they are known for? What good are they? It might be a defensive mechanism but it's not something anyone really likes anyways! - Flair-de-lis

6 Snake Snake Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. About 600 species are venomous, some of which can be fatal to humans if no medical help is sought.

These things are nuisances for even other animals, and dangerous for humans most of the time because they are venomous! I hate snakes and they don't help anyone! - Flair-de-lis

7 Deer Deer Deer are the ruminant mammals forming the family Cervidae. The two main groups are the Cervinae, including the muntjac, the fallow deer and the chital, and the Capreolinae, including the elk, reindeer, the Western roe deer, and the Eurasian elk.

Well they do feed off the plants, I know there are instances where they just jump into the traffic, like why? - Flair-de-lis

8 Seagull Seagull

I'm pretty sure anyone who goes to a beach has to have seen at least one seagull. They aren't really fun at all, and are a bit like geese. - Flair-de-lis

9 Jellyfish Jellyfish

Another beach animal, one that I know does nothing amazing but getting near one hurts so much! Is the tentacles all they're good for? - Flair-de-lis

10 Raccoon Raccoon The raccoon, sometimes spelled racoon, also known as the common raccoon, North American raccoon, northern raccoon and colloquially as coon, is a medium-sized mammal native to North America.

They get into our dumpsters! I find most scavenging animals to be nuisances! - Flair-de-lis
