If One Animal Was Made The Size Of A Whale, Which Would Be The Scariest? (20 Replies)

It’s a good thing every animal isn’t the size of a whale or we’d all be screwed.

Could you imagine if insects weren’t tiny little things? Or what about cats? They don’t sound so cuddly anymore, do they?

Someone decided to ask the internet which animals would be the scariest if they were the size of whales, and the responses have me feeling grateful I don’t have to fight off whale-sized chimpanzees on my way to the grocery store.

Here’s how people responded.

If one animal was made the size of a whale, which would be the scariest?

Chimpanzee. Already very strong and incredibly smart, just imagine if you pissed it off.

Any microscopic insect/organism whose form is unfamiliar to human eyes as is.

A chicken would be absolutely terrorizing.

Ants would be pretty scary. Their faces.. keep it microscopic

Giant centipede. They’re terrifying enough at centipede size.

Ducks due to the gigantic corkscrew penis

Dragonfly… Any river will be deadly and later they just kill you from the air.

A slime mould cell.

It’s basically an amoeba, so not that scary. One whale-sized blob of cytoplasm that can’t do very much.

BUT … every now and then, it’ll join forces with hundreds of thousands of its siblings. They gloop together to form one massive superorganism that’s now no longer the size of a whale; it’s the size of Mount Everest.

It then sets off looking for food and digesting everything in its path. It squelches over our farms and cities, digesting them all. The armed forces try to blow it up, but every time they do, it just divides and carries on as before, eating everything and getting bigger. It is unstoppable.

Oh, and it’s smart. Capable of navigation, learning, and memory, despite not having a brain or any sensory organs as we know them.

It then decides to stop. It produces an armada of spores that disperse on the wind and waters to cover the globe. They return to being a single, whale-sized blob.

Until its myriad brethren over the world decide to coalesce again. Because it’s lunchtime.

Horseflies. Fuck those buzzing, biting, blood-drinking vampires.

Baby whale so then it would grow into a mega whale

Pistol shrimp. Imagine the heat they can generate at that size.

“The internal low pressure causes a water pulse that immobilizes prey with an associated noise of 218 dB which is louder than a bullet, and reportedly a temperature of 4800 degrees centigrade which is similar to the surface temperature of the sun”

ONLY BECAUSE they will eat anything that can fit in their mouth.

now imagine a whale-sized frog with its whale-sized mouth being able to eat anything that can fit.

buildings, people cars, most likely whales, planes, boats you name it it’s gone
