Yorkshire Terrier. Pound for pound they are more vicious than a Rottweiler - you just don't notice it as much because of the size of their mouths.

yep nothing is meaner, rougher, or more tenacious (per pound) than a shrew

I used to think the Wolverine was the strongest mammal in the world also, based on some obscure piece of information I read when I was younger.
But in recent years the myth of Le Carcajou being the strongest mammal has been disproven.

The new world record for animal strength was set in March 2010 by the Horned Dung Beetle.

In a laboratory experiment, Rob Knell from Queen Mary, University of London and Leigh Simmons from the University of Western Australia found that the strongest Onthophagus taurus could pull 1,141 times its own body weight.
That's equivalent to a person lifting close to 180,000 pounds (the same as six full double-decker buses).

i only read the first page and this one so forgive me if its a repeat but ive read somewhere, and agreee, that the meanest animal on earth is the house cat. they kill more varieties of other animals than most any other preadator and does it out of boredom most of the time.

The Noble Wolf is the most vicious of the beasts!

It will hunt and kill for the love of the chase and not necessarily because it's hungry either!

Chows are very loyal and quit when dead, but perhaps a boa could be a contender. Heck they can ingest children, deer, even crocks.

Humans, by far. We are also the most senselessly violent, killing for no good reason.

When it comes to non-human animals, my vote would go to moles or badgers.

Bacterial and viral infections kill millions, perhaps billions yearly. Far more deadly than any animal.

Pound for pound, wolverine hands down. I would rather face a rino than 90 wolverines. Nasty little peckers.

Honey badger...the degree to which it just doesn't care is astounding.

Because of the toughness and looseness of their skin, honey badgers are very difficult to kill with dogs. Their skin is hard to penetrate, and its looseness allows them to twist and turn on their attackers when held. The only safe grip on a honey badger is on the back of the neck. The skin is also tough enough to resist several machete blows. The only sure way of killing them quickly is through a blow to the skull with a club or a shot to the head with a gun, as their skin is almost impervious to arrows and spears.
They've cited sources for that.

This thing will crawl into a beehive and eat honey, get stung by bees and act like it's nothing. Bitten by cobras? Meh...take a nap.

Crazy, nasty ass honey badger...

Feral Kitten

God almighty! I found one in my driveway and bones...looking like it was half dead and I fed ran right up and started eating.

I put my hand down to pet the little guy and by the time I figured out where he went he had chewed his way up my arm and into my armpit....I thought about ripping him off but didnt wanna hurt him....just too damned cute....I let him chew a while till he went back to his plate....I was a bloody mess! Little bastard sounded like a damned full grown tiger going to town on me!

At least I wouldnt feel bad about punching a grizzly in the nose! ...The Kitten...all 7 ounces of him is just plain damned mean cute!...HORRIBLE!
