I am an animal nerd like none other. I will notice your dog's new haircut and tell him that he's handsome. I will eagerly await the release of the movie G-Force (OMG! Secret Agent Guinea Pigs!) and I will refer to my BFF's cats as my "Kitty Nephews."
However, there are some animals that even I can't muster enthusiasm for.
Snakes: Because, dude. Where are your legs?
Eels: You're like snakes, but less esthetically appealing. And you're in the water which makes you even grosser.
Axolotls: A restaraunt in the town where I went to college inexplicably had a tank full of these digusting creatures in the dining room. Whenever I ate at said restaraunt I would always stop and mutter hateful things into the aquarium on my way to the bathroom.
Flying Fish: For the longest time, I fostered a bizarre nightmare involving being in a boat that was inundated by a school of flying fish and getting one caught in my hair. And then I read The Life of Pi and had my worst fears confirmed! Or as much as fears can be confirmed by a work of fiction.
Tapirs: Dude. You are not a proper animal. You are the bastard child of a threesome between a donkey/pig/elephant. Also, I suspect you smell really bad.
What animals fail to float your boat?
