Since it's late spring, most animals leave their mothers to make a life of their own. Birds fly off, small mammals leave and I found a few-months-old scorpion in my yard. Scorpion mothers only take care of their young for a few weeks, so this one must be fresh out into his own. I caught him. He seems kinda strange however, he only has one claw and a strange black growth on his head. Probably a birth mutation/defect. Interesting. I'll call him "Kolovos", which basically means that he's missing something (in this case, a claw) and release him. Does anyone else have any even slightly dangerous animals where they live?
I'm spending a year dead for tax reasons.

Britain isn't very exciting when it comes to animals, but I read not so long ago that a giant scorpion was randomly riding around on the London Underground attached to someone's backpack. So, you never know?

I have Rattle Snakes, Scorpions, Black Widows, any number of birds of prey, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, and probably some other animals that are dangerous but not seen yet here. Obviously birds of prey aren't dangerous to us humans, but to any pets they are.

Moose is the most dangerous animal. They tend to cross roads when it's dark, and they aren't afraid of incoming cars. In that case you can have 400 kilograms flying in from your windshield.

Just moved not too long ago, saw a pod of orca tailing our boat. Happy I wasn't in the water with them! :p
