The Stuff of Nightmares for some... (posted in reply to many peoples irrational fear of insects such as in 'This ant wouldn't die' thread) Which tiny creature currently inhabiting this planet if blown up to man-hunting size would be the most terrifying to you? Assume that man for the sake of this is still in a more hunter gather societal state where we could not organize well to eradicate them and they still took regular human casualties? I'll offer a few examples. The Bobbit Worm which currently have been known to grow to lengths of 3 meters which is the size of a good sized Anaconda, but they need more girth to really threaten man. Imagine an anaconda width Bobbit setting traps along the shore line when you go swimming. Surely it would take regular human prey. Spiders - Imagine walking head long into a cluster of giant man eating spiders in the woods. As ambush hunters they would easily take out humans. Ants - Ptibulls would have nothing on Pitbull sized fire ants on the march. Wasps - often called the assholes of the insect world, a wasp large enough to take down a man would be a true terror from the skies. other???
