Disintegral: For those people who don't live in northern or eastern Australia, have an excerpt from Wikipedia:

"Masked lapwings are shy and harmless in summer and autumn but are best known for their bold nesting habits, being quite prepared to make a nest on almost any stretch of open ground, including suburban parks and gardens, school ovals, and even supermarket carparks and flat rooftops. They can be particularly dangerous at airports where their reluctance to move from their nesting area – even for large aircraft – has resulted in several bird strikes. Breeding usually happens after winter solstice (June 21), but sometimes before. The nesting pair defends their territory against all intruders by calling loudly, spreading their wings, and then swooping fast and low, and where necessary striking at interlopers with their feet and attacking animals on the ground with a conspicuous yellow spur on the carpal joint of the wing."

Disintegral: I'm thinking this might be a little series, like what I did with Eiffel (the blue foal). Who or what should Cookie try to "pway" with next?

Disintegral: @Knucklebone: That was actually my original idea for this, before I went with masked lapwings. Huntsmans are little bitches unless you back them into a corner though.

Disintegral: @Aliaz: I was only semi-aware of those before, but I think I've actually seen them around. The chemical cocktail they spray sounds awesomely painful.

But I changed my mind.

Micron: Where I live, there is a type of cockroach about four or five centimeters long. They freak people out when they are on the ground, but if temperatures are high enough they can fly with the force of a small bird. I have also woken up with them on my face.

Anonymous3: Oh hell yeah, bombardier or blister beetle vs fluffy would be great.

Thinking about those little bastards reminded me of another little bastard- the Saddleback caterpillar. It's a funny-looking little thing with a bright green 'saddle' on it, and its sting- by which I mean the lightest brush of its spines- feels like being physically bitchslapped, followed by burning. They like to hang out on the undersides of leaves; one got me right on the rim of the ear when I was a teenager.

I doubt they'd be able to get through thick fluff, but imagine a fluffy smeww-pwace, or soft leathery hoofsies, being used to poke the funnie buggie munstah...

also fluffy vs mantis shrimp

Disintegral: @guodzilla: Would a chimpanzee even see a fluffy as a threat to its dominance, or would it see it more as a plaything and/or food?

A mean-ass woman with the "I'd like to speak to your manager" haircut could be fun though. I think they fall into that category you mentioned, or at least overlap with it.

@Micron: I think there's a fair few cockroach species that can do that. I dimly remember finding them in the summer when I lived further north.

Good pairing for fluffies though. Completely harmless to humans, so expect some amount of non-lethal injury for fluffies.

@Anonymous: I've done the "hugged to death by kid" thing before, but that was with a little girl. A young boy opens up more opportunities...

@12monkehs: In the next few seconds: SWOOP, followed by FUCKING SMACK and "SCREEEE!".

@Anonymous: This seems exactly like the sort of thing a fluffy would actually end up getting hurt and traumatised by.

@Bonerfiesta: I had no idea that ghost slugs were a thing, but sharp-toothed carnivore slugs? Nice.

I think my favourite idea out of those might be Elizabeth though. Infinite actually had a scrapped NPC or enemy idea called the Merged that would work perfectly with her.

WiredandGaming: Let's see...

-Black Footed Ferrets. Their diet is about 92% prairie dogs. The last 8% is made up of chirpeh babbeh sized rodents. Still quite endangered because of Bubonic plague.

-Elephants. We've got one who can hurl monster truck tires.

-HIPPOPOTAMUS. The zoo's young male was actually pretty chill with humans but other animals stayed far enough away.

Disintegral: @ayylmao499: Can't say I know, but I did share a property with a mating pair once. Maybe I should've tried eating them, since they're really noisy, even outside of breeding season.

Mantis shrimp seems a bit easy, and I'm really surprised that there's nothing on the Booru with that tag already.

Basswhooper: Question, y'all: would flaff pones have an accent? Like, would Australian fluffies have a 'Strayan accent, British fluffies have a limey accent, and so forth?

Disintegral: @Basswhooper: I usually just imagine them all sounding like they're voiced by Tara Strong, so I figure they all have an American accent. Unless they're the ones Hasbio made for non-English-speaking markets.

Bonerfiesta: @Disintegral: Boner points if you play up Elizabeth's naïve princess persona!

- Reply
Disintegral: @Bonerfiesta: Of course. I can't imagine her as anything but an unrepentant hugboxer, except maybe when she's lost the naivete in Burial at Sea. But even hugbox is a potential danger for fluffies, especially when interdimensional tears are involved.

Disintegral: @ForScience: I'm debating either doing that, or doing something with Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite like Bonerfiesta suggested. The former would be faster to draw, but the latter might have more potential.

GayNiggerFromOuterSpace: @Disintegral: ive heard tale of magpies that knock people off bikes, and cassowaries and emus being dinosaurs and doing dinosaur things. I've also heard that cockatoos are the pigeons of your lands. Tell your birds to chill the fuck out.

Disintegral: @GayNiggerFromOuterSpace: Magpies are also pretty chilled out though, if you don't get one that's had a bad experience with humans. I've never met friendlier wild birds than some of the local ones around here that are used to people.

Also, pigeons are still the pigeons here, as far as I'm concerned. And I've never had a run-in with an emu or cassowary, but I did get into a fight with a peacock that tried to steal my food at the zoo.
