Secretary bird (Sagittarius serpentarius) by George Raper, 1769-1796.
Things I have thought WAY too long about: how to create an objective set of raw data to determine which animals are the most BAMF. Things at which I have not yet succeeded: see previous sentence.
Animals that Just Don’t Give A Fuck™:
- Honey Badger
- Secretary Bird
- Bottle-nose Dolphin
- Barn owls
- Komodo Dragon
- Cane toad*
Ranking based on Swag, Badassery, Illusory Cuteness and Disregard of Surroundings.
*Debatable. Is it so ugly it’s cute, or so ugly it’s just fugly?
