Eating well seems to be the best defense. Shamelessly stolen from another FARK thread.

"potato beetle babies (larvae) cover themselves in their own poop"

Meh.  Every parent knows human babies do this too.

You know Malaysian ants - always exploding all over themselves, ruining the fun. All kidding aside, it's really true. Malaysian ants internally combust under threat, causing their bodies to explode (they wait until their enemies are close enough to die before detonating). Camponotus saundersi soldier ants have large glands full of poison inside their bodies. When they sense a threat, they contract their abs, causing the glands on either side of their bodies to explode and spray poison.

They forgot this one:

A very ineffective defense strategy, but a strategy nonetheless.

Subby: who wouldn't want to spray blood from your eyes, or turn themselves inside out so your digestive tract's toxic juices poison your enemies

I would love to spray blood from your eyes, however, I don't think I can turn myself inside out and then use your digestive juices though. ;)

I'm actually not clear on how shooting blood from your eyes is a viable defense. Confusing, sure. Awkward, definitely.

Unless it's under high-pressure I'm not seeing a big difference from shiatting yourself.

Shiatting yourself works too.

Paris1127: What, no Sonoran Coral Snake?


I was thinking Hognose snake. Although, in truth, their defense is more hilarious than bizarre.

At first, they do what most snakes do, try to slither away. If that's not enough, they "stand up", flatten their necks like a cobra, and begin to hiss. If you ignore the hissing, the snake might make a few half hearted attempts to strike in your general vicinity, but will do so in such a way that it's obvious the thing doesn't want its mouth anywhere near your disgusting body. I mean, my God, he doesn't know where you've been or what kind of germs you might be infested with.

The final stage of defense, if you aren't scared away by the sissy, drunken, and blind cobra act, is that the hognose will play dead. The snake will roll over onto its back, stick its tongue out, start salivating, and it shiats itself. Of course, like all dead creatures of this Earth, if you flip it over onto its stomach, it immediately flips itself onto its back again. Extremely convincing.
