If you have a pet of your own, whether it’s a cat or a dog or maybe something else, you have probably noticed some behaviors that may seem unusual or just downright disgusting. Maybe you have caught your dog enjoying a nice meal that he had already previously eaten for dinner. Perhaps you have caught your cat urinating on the furniture, leaving behind a stench that you might find hard wipe out. Whatever your pet has done won’t even compare to these 15 animals with gross behaviors. Some of the disgusting attributes that these animals embrace may even contribute to their various ecosystems.


1. Hippo



Hippos may seem like they would be big, harmless and lazy animals however they are actually quite dangerous. They are feared in Africa as they are one of the most dangerous animals there, killing more people than any other animal. Another reason to avoid these animals is the fact that when they emerge from their mud baths they tend to ‘muck spread’ or fling a mixture of their own urine and feces at each other.

Smile at whatever happens.

2. Giraffe



You may not know it but giraffes tend to drool a lot. Their diet of leaves from tall trees requires a little extra help for the giraffes to swallow. Their surplus saliva may act similar to a beverage that you would need if you have ever eaten something dry enough to turn your mouth into a desert. If you had an 18-inch tongue you would need excessive amounts of spit to keep your mouth properly moistened as well.

Smile at whatever happens.

3. Horned Lizard



Could you imagine using your own blood as a defense mechanism? That would be disturbing and confusing, right? Horned lizards are able to quirt a stream of blood from the corners of their eyes for a distance of up to 5 feet. This is done by restricting the blood flow leaving the head, which in turn increases blood pressure and ruptures vessels around the eyelids. This defense mechanism is said to taste horrible for would be canine or feline predators but seemingly has no effect on birds.

Smile at whatever happens.

4. Flies



It should come as no surprise that house flies are disgusting. You can often find flies gathering around feces or garbage or even worse. Flies are covered in bacteria and that dog poop you see those flies gathering around, yeah, they eat that. What makes it worse is that if a fly lands on your food, they will actually vomit their digestive juices onto it. Also, flies like to lay their eggs in dead flesh which leaves behind maggots.

Smile at whatever happens.

5. Cows



Do you ever get a bit gassy after a big meal? Imagine eating 90 pounds of food a day and not burping once or twice. You may not realize this but cows are almost always leaking gas from both their front and rear ends. They can actually evacuate up to a half gallon of gas every minute. Gas prices would be cheap if we filled our cars with cow methane!

Smile at whatever happens.

6. Hoopoe Bird



This cool looking bird may seem cute for bird lovers but you may have to wear nose plugs if you want to get near it. The Hoopoe bird has a special gland near its anus which creates a terrible smelling substance, and no it’s not poop. The scent actually carries the weight of a rotten flesh smell which the bird covers itself in. The foul smell also acts as an antibacterial agent as well as a parasite repellent. Baby Hoopoe birds forgo the smell altogether and squirt feces into the faces of would be predators when they feel threatened.

Smile at whatever happens.

7. Sea Cucumber



These underwater sausages tend to make meals out of the worst of the ocean floor. Sea cucumbers like to dine on the feces and bodies of dead animals. What makes this interesting is that in some cultures, sea cucumbers are looked upon as a delicacy and an aphrodisiac. Sea cucumbers have also been under research for medicinal properties and have been used in Asian folk medicine.
