Even wondered what it’s like getting bitten by an animal? As you can imagine, there are animals that bite hard to defend themselves or as a form of an attack. However, not all animals are capable of biting with force, and can end up giving more of a suckle than a bite. And then there’s the question of whether they were trying to bite you with malicious intent.

Anywho, Jelena Woehr recently went to Twitter to answer this very question: what’s it like being bitten by various animals?

One thread later, we have a list of 20 animals and tweet-long reviews with ratings detailing the various bites found in the animal kingdom.

Bored Panda invites you to check out Jelena’s reviews of bites in the list below. And while you’re down there, why not vote on the ones you liked the most, and leave us a comment with your own animal bite reviews in the comment section!

So, Jelena Woehr (pronounced yell in a war), a writer, editor, creative, educator, and businesswoman from Los Angeles, went to Twitter with a thread—a thread that reviews animal bites.

In particular, these are somewhat detailed accounts of how these various animals bite, and how it feels.

Now, we’re not sure whether the author of these tweets has actually done the empirical part of this experiment before writing up the reviews, but whatever the case may be, don’t try this at home!

One of these dogs killed my Maltese by shaking him by the neck. I blamed the owner. He was investigated and they found all kinds of animals that were being abused in his home. There was an alligator in his basement. I adopted the Akita instead of them killing it. He was a good dog. It took a lot to teach him. Had him for two years before he passed away of cancer.

My neighbor had an Akita, a female, and she was huge! She'd break out of his yard while he was at work and spend the day at my house. I loved that dog.

Most vets will advise that children and dogs should be supervised by an adult or separated. Kids just cannot be trusted to behave appropriately around powerful animals and the animals only have so much patience.

I grew up with an albino akita, whose name was Frosty. He was my best friend and I miss him dearly. We now have an Akita named, Jake.

The list includes a number of domesticated and wild animals: everything from goats to snakes to birds to dogs to different kinds of rodents.

Each review includes a general overview of the bite, its qualities and character, the feeling and other related details.

The reviews also include a rating on a 5-point scale with 0 being a bad and 5—a good rating. In some cases, the “experience” breaks the scale, but in most it stays within the confines of the numeric continuum.

Unless it is a baby goat, then it is pretty painful since they have sharp teeth. I speak from experience here.

According to Jelena, among the best bites are those by the parrotlet, the African pygmy hedgehog, the chinchilla, and, of course, the giant squid, which got a million-point rating.

But, there are also bad bites, mostly ones that are anything but pleasant: those by the vicuña (South American camelids reminiscent of llamas), the domestic cat, the black bear hamster, and the Norwegian rat. The vicuña, though cute, got a -5 rating, so there’s that.

Though the thread received a modest amount of attention from the internet, just a bit over 13,000 likes with nearly 4,500 retweets, many were still engaged sharing their own thoughts on bites.

The commenters effectively said to avoid bites from animals like golden Syrian hamsters, geese, and Maine coons.

However, not all are bad. Some vouched for pigeons, gerbils, grasshoppers, and many other very tame animals as having either ineffective and/or amusing bites.
