    What is your choice for worst animal life to live?

    Mine is an antelope family of animals. A true bottom of the food chain animal.

    If he survives the Crocodiles at the watering hole by day

    They must avoid Lions by day and night and sleep no more than 10 minutes at a time

    and even snakes take their toll

    Lots of 'prey' animals live lives on the run. Non-stop stress, relentlessly pursued until a single slip ends your life.

    They are important parts of the food chain and serve their purpose and their defense is breeding in huge numbers but make no mistake, their ultimate and inevitable death comes by predation.

    Really you live to breed and die feeding another. Your only role is to survive long enough to breed.

    So what say you? Is there an animal you think it would be even worse to be?

    rabbits have it even worse. They are always on the brink of total nervous shutdown from panic and their threats come in so many more forms.

    Out of all the animals in the world, you chose an antelope.

    I suppose a chicken, cow or pig at a factory farm. The antelope's life is stressful as hell, but it's like living in the inner city vs living in maximum security prison with Brett Rogers for a cellmate.

    You disagree and think there are many other animals that live a more imperiled life?

    It's literally on the run from birth to its inevitable death via predation. the only question is 'when'.

    What is your choice?

    ya, hands down I think living a life as a captive factory farm animal would be the worst as you are denied even the chance to live any type of productive life, whatever that would mean to each species.

    I was focused more on natural cycles of predation in the OP, but otherwise this would /thread.

    Your life's goal is to find a nice warm and fresh pile of shit to settle down and raise your family in.

    Actually seems like one of the simpler lives if that is what makes you happy.

    Cow, pig, or chicken in the meat or dairy industry is about as bad as it can get.

    Mayflies only live for 24 hrs, but I'd rather be one of those than a factory raised chicken, pig or cow.

    Well, the antelope is a good choice then. I have a lot of sympathy for those species that are constantly on edge, constantly scanning their surroundings for predators, jumpy and nervous with no way to really defend themselves.

    Antelope seriously just wants to get home to his family.

    How about a field mouse? Predators may include: cats, coyotes, weasels, many species of bird.

    I wouldn't want to be a maggot.
