    A stingray on the back of the leg.
    Paper wasps on my wrist ,ear n neck.
    A Red bellied black snake on the inside of my knee, after picking it up to show off to a mate.
    Many ticks, and a massive one on my ballsack, that left a massive infection.
    2 dogs, one that left a scare on my hand.
    3 cats on my hands again.
    A woman on my arm, she was nasty
    Many bees on my feet.
    Sand flies on my legs n arms.
    Sea lice all over.
    Blue bottle jellyfish on my chest.
    Thousands of mozzies
    A white tip spider on my leg
    Bed bugs in QLD
    A very vicious duck on the hand as a kid
    A wombat on the hand, trying to help it after it got hit by a car.
    A camel, bit me on the back of the neck at the zoo
    bitten by a nasty parrot my mate had.
    A Taylor (fish) took a chunck out of my hand.
    Mud crab on the hand + a blue swimmer crab on the hand
    A Ferrot on the finger.

    you know many things on your list dont actually bite, they sting...

    anyways nastiest things i have been biten by are deer and horse flies, ive also been nipped by my cat and a garden snake (they dont have teeth so it was weird).

    and since you included stinging things ive gotten it from wasps, bees, and jellyfish.

    Dude you need to avoid animals for a while. While working at a pet shop the number of snakes, lizards, mice, rats, and other small animals I have recieved nibbles by went beyond count.

    Most annoying bite ever was a full grown albino rat snake that almost drowned itself prior to finally releasing from my arm. Dang thing was in a tub of water for almost 10min.

    Worst bite was from a baby Tegu.

    Most uncomfortable was from a couple hundred bites from sand fleas.

    Most dangerous was a black widow bite on my arm.

    mosquitoes (not play biting)
    ticks (not play biting)
    chiggers (not play biting)
    black flies (not play biting)
    deer flies (not play biting)

    Meat Wasps. Little bastards blew up my leg and then it drained down to my foot. Took me weeks to get rid of the fluid.

    Scorpion sting was pretty incapacitating. Seven hours laid out with no voice or eye motor control, numb legs, couldn't stand. Probably shouldn't have run down the mountain after being stung... Trundle with caution!

    LOL, guys n girls (the loverly nicole xx)
    it seems to me a few of us have had problems with females biting us..im not sure what we can do to deter this stuff ?
    i got bitten by a chick on the arm that had been smoking ice for a few days, but there were a few warning signs, she was looking as mad as a rabid dog, she had chaffed lips n her eyes were glowing like a zombie, she just bit my arm for nothing in a supermarket, just grabbed on with her chompers n i didnt know what was going on, she broke the skin, n by the time i knew what was happening she screamed at me n ran off, moral to the story, stay away from women that look like they have the early onset of rabies, and always carry dis-infectant....... cheers

    I was once bitten and infected by a Dependapotamus. It took almost three years to get rid of the creature and still recovering from after effects it left. What is a Dependapotamus you ask? Quoted from a source.

    "This creature of lore is actually quite common within the Marine Corps. Mostly found in the darkest corners of base housing, Dependapotamus may look like a predator of some kind, but it is actually defined as a parasite. Much like a tick or leach, the creature will engorge itself into gluttony through the benefits and steady paychecks offered by the unsuspecting Marine."

    Bitten by - dogs
    Dalmation - left palm
    Rotweiller - right calf
    Doberman - left calf
    Akita - left thumb (5 hr surgery)

    Gang stang by yellow jackets to cause both hands to swell to the size of boxing gloves. Wasn't a fun 12 hr drive back to school.

    Unsure if self-inflicted bites count here. Either the Coyote Love never happened, or the left arm grew back, but I've never tasted Jack Daniels since.

    sounds like something that would leave black sores on your heart and soul.

    my friend was a Navy wife. not saying SHE was one of those vile things, but she sure told me stories of the other navy wives she tried to make friends with. They liked to party and cheat on their men away at sea, do drugs and pass out while their toddlers ran amok.

    i'm sure many outdoorsy types can relate, but i've been "bitten" by stinging nettle also (called burn hazel in some areas). my dog dragged me into a huge patch of it, then got her leash tangled. i had to rescue her, helplessly getting covered in welts. stuff sucks.

    Countless times by small fish (does having my body hair pulled vionently count for being bitten?). My part of the Mediterranean sea is full of them. If you want deforestation for free, come here and try.........

    I never got stung by any bees until I moved to California. Since moving here 27 years ago I've been stung many times, several times while on bike rides.

    A couple months ago I got stung by a bumblebee that flew in my truck unnoticed while I was on the way to the start of a climbing ride. I put my hand in my lap and got stung on my pinky, luckily while I was on a dirt road with no traffic. Got out of the truck with the bee still on my tank top and carefully moved it off of me by using a branch of a nearby bush. It never flew away, so it was probably dying.

    The pain was intense until I started climbing the first hill, then the endorphins took over and I was mostly pain-free for the rest of the ride.

    Forgot about the dog bites. One happened when I was 5 or 6 years old, but it wasn't a bad one. The other time I got bit in the ass when I turned my back on my friend's Rottweiler. Again, not a bad bite, just a scrape. Funny thing is, the dog was normally friendly toward me.
