    While a bit cliche’, I’d have to throw the octopus in this mix. The tentacles give me nightmares…

  2. OK, so throw in the octopus and remove the so-called “killer whale”. The Orca, as it is properly called really is not very scary. There are hundreds of more dangerous creatures in the sea, including other whales, walruses, polar bears,jellyfish, eels, etc.

    I find these creatures extremely amazing, the coelacanth is my favorite, although I don’t see what is so scary about it, unlike the others which are either venomous, or will rip you to shreds, the coelacanth is neither. it is pretty harmless with hardly any teeth whatsoever and doesn’t look at all scary. And I think they need to take the orca out of there, it is neither scary or deadly, only being called the “killer whale” because it is one of the only species of marine life that will hunt sharks as prey, and only very few reports of them attacking humans for territorial reasons or because they are harming their young in some way, other than that, people pet and feed these all the time. So I think they should take him out and replace him with something more appropriate like a saw fish or a horseshoe crab or something.

    Extinct 400 Million Years? Coelanth. Just shows the miserable failings of the evolution theory. If Fossils are found Its because they were there just a few thousand years ago. Not millions of years!!
