    Why would it be trying to kill me? I'm not a giant banana.
    This thread is really dumb and sad.

    Also, you don't seem to understand lens distortion.

    Hmm im not convinced.

    Seriously though these are gorgeous!! Why would you rejoice in them being wiped out

    As everyone has said they aren't carnivorous and wouldn't eat you but what difference does that make? You wouldn't last long with a group of hungry tigers but would that mean you would want them all dead?

    When they announced that the Baiji (river dolphin) had gone
    extinct. I cried. Literally. To see an animal like that go extinct in my lifetime.
    Me too! I always loved learning about ancient giant species and island gigantism. Check out the megalodon! I really can't understand why anyone would want other species extinct that pose absolutely no threat to them.

    More awesome giant badass animals:

    Yes, these are real.

    Yes, these are real.

    Yes, these are real.

    Yes, these are real.

    (And for the kind of people who hate harmless vegetarian bats):
    Yes, these are real.

    AWWWWWWWWW!

    They don't kill humans.
    At worst, they will take a massive crap on you.

    Fear the guano, not the flying fox.

    I've always thought they were one of the top ten coolest animals on the planet. I only wish they were way bigger...so I could ride one.
    What would Caravaggio do?

    To be honest I lol'ed at that. Only because in the second pic you posted he's clearly nomming on a banana, chilling out with some humans.

    No face-ripping, maiming or killing of any kind going on....surprising for such lethal man killers

    I get that they're creepy, but they're also kind of beautiful.
    Shooting them and stringing em up like some kind of trophy is ridiculous, especially considering the fact that they're endangered.

    Unless they started making gigatic gigantic pocket knives, like the one @ top of the first picture. That first picture is fake. The second one is lens distortion, and the third one has an obvious tangent on the girls right (our left) arm where the wing is.

    Also didn't read the wiki.

    If anything he should fear the stone fish! Touch this bad boy and you'll enter a world of pain. You can die if you aren't treated within just a few hours and the fish blends in very well with it's environment, so it's almost impossible to avoid before it's too late.

    Yes, these are real.

    If he's going to shoot animals just to get rid of them, at least I'd somewhat understand it with these guys. Then again I heard they make for awesome sashimi!

    I'll be right back, I just gotta go commit genocide, rape a few orphans, tell people that the cure to aids is to have sex with virgins, explain to millions of people that condoms and gays are sinful, rob an old lady, lend trillions of dollars to people who cant possibly pay me back and then sell all my debt, enslave some children in some sweat shops and force them to be soldiers on the weekend, suppress some Libyans, take part a race war by attacking civilians, occupy a country and force my army to disarm roadside bombs and blow their arms off and then give them meagre aftercare and almost no compensation, manufacture some radioactive baby milk, torture some prisoners with pliers and jump cables, keep some other prisoners in solitary confinement for years, and murder some prostitutes.
    Its such a busy schedule being all that is wrong with mankind.

    Yeah, after I saw Blue Lagoon as a kid, I was terrified of stepping
    onto one of those.

    I always thought the male platypus was scary. I heard a story where a man died from the pain alone!
