Mmmm, squirrels are good eatin' too. Much like rabbit flesh. Campsite grilled wild meats, caught illegally in the national parks, can lead to some hefty fines and jail time I'm sure.

You've all seemed to have had bad encounters with other species. I feel fortunate then, because after having summeted a nearby peak, I came upon Risian woman. We made out. Then I went home. She returned to her planet. Great hike.

suprising accurate, mosquitos are the the root cause of the most human deaths at over 2 million per year.

My vote for worst resident: the copperhead I went nose-to-nose with on a ledge about midway up the first pitch of Hawk in the Gunks. I was on 5.easy ground and had no gear in -- was planning to put something in once I got to that ledge. Managed to climb over and run it out some more. My partners sometimes wonder why I place gear on 5.easy terrain.... snakes, man, snakes.

I met that sneffelhound or his cousin under in a boulder bivy below Spearhead. I broke my camera trying to get the gear away from him. That's why there are no photos of this thing, crafty little devil: Bushy Tailed Wood Rat.

But my vote is for the killer bees. The only 'bees' I've had sting me near a climb are the ground nesting yellow jackets.

Oh and I've brushed a copperhead off a hand hold thinking it was a stick!

Eldo Pigeons - Maybe not the worst, but worth a nomination.

Bats are also worth a nomination - yea they normally only leave stuff around and chirp at you, but if you get bit it is a bad situation.

I know that rat, hes viscious


On another note, I vote for the red ants that engulfed my arm in yosemite when I put my arm around a tree at a belay and had a flaming arm that put me into a backwards 20 footer when I let go in panic.

Definitely the Kea if you ask me.

Beautiful bird in the wild but it could put a real damper on things if you weren't careful.

Seeing a Kea flying away with one of your socks or worse, a boot liner made for an interesting trip. There was also the surprise waiting for you at the trailhead if you were silly enough to leave a car. Windshield wipers or any exposed rubber being the hot item.
