Animalia: Terrifying

There seems to be a common misconception that vegans love all animals.

Untrue (at least for me). There are extremely few animals that I have truly loved. My dog, Olivia, and previous dogs, Otis and Rea. My turtle, Raphael, the hermit crabs I used to have (my parents bought them as substitutes for the hamster I really wanted). Sadly, Barky the Betta fish does not make the cut. There are several animals I could do without, and a few that I resent for their contributions to fashion. Leopards and zebras, mostly.

There are also the elite few that, to use technical terms, scare the bejesus out of me:

Lampreys. Ugh.

Something about the eyes and head.

(Side note: despite the ostrich, Leonard Part 6 is a fantastic film, Siskel and Ebert be damned.)
