Join The Debate

Contender 1: Mouse

The Mouse is a small mammal characterized by its pointed snout, round ears, and long, thin tail. There are over 30 species of mice, but all tend to have a similar size, ranging from 1.5 to 3.5 inches in body length, with tails of similar or slightly longer lengths. Their fur can be a variety of colors, including white, brown, gray, or black, and they are known for their fast reproduction rates. Mice are omnivores, though their diets predominantly consist of plant material like seeds and fruits, as well as insects.

Fun Fact: Mice have a keen sense of hearing and can communicate with each other using ultrasonic calls, many of which are above the range of human hearing.

Contender 2: Piranha

The Piranha is a freshwater fish that resides in South American rivers and lakes. They are known for their sharp, triangular teeth and strong jaws, which are both adaptations for their diet of fish, insects, and sometimes larger prey. Piranhas have a robust body shape, often with a reddish-brown or silver coloration, and can range in size from 5 to 20 inches depending on the species. Despite their fearsome reputation, they are often scavengers as much as they are predators.

Fun Fact: Contrary to popular belief, piranhas are not exclusively carnivorous and can be omnivorous, feeding on seeds and fruits as well as meat.
