“Based on the breakdown, Komodo dragons are better warriors than kangaroos; alligators metaphorically hit harder than cheetahs; and a honey badger has a better chance of beating a horse than the other way around. Unarmed humans, meanwhile, won their fights just 17 percent of the time—putting us in second to last place, far behind ostriches (28 percent) and slightly ahead of geese (14 percent).” Most humans are pretty realistic about their chances in a fight with an animal. But about 6% think they can beat a Grizzly Bear. (And they should probably be encouraged to try.)
