40 animals with a menacing aura telling you to back away

Animals can be sweet and cute and cuddly and adorable–I love my pets. And in some ways, animals are just like us. They eat, they sleep, they mate… and they have feelings.

Who doesn’t want to say hi to a friendly dog, or pet a cat… at times it’s even tempting to touch a racoon when you’re camping. But these animals—let’s just say you might not want to get too close! These animals are either in a bad mood, extremely bossy, or possibly possessed.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to document and shoot these crazy looking animals so we can share them with our friends and family.
