'Dark'/mysterious animals?

Yup, me again. What are some dark/mysterious/gloomy/ominous/evil/etc species of animals? I only know of crows and ravens. And yes, technically anything can be made 'dark' but the stereotype thread got me curious about what animals are usually seen as dark in the fandom? Or which ones have a bad/negative stereotype? c:
 
stereotype thread? Where would that be?

anyhow, as much as it pains me to say it, skunks and badgers are somewhat negatively stereotyped...

Rav- oh. ._.

I'd say wolves, only because about 1/3 of them picked them because they're supposedly emo loners.

Any sort of creepy crawly or slimy thing...I'd like to see an anthro leech, personally. Deep sea creatures are amazing and horrifying.

I can't think of any fuzzy animals that are inherently dark and mysterious off the top of my head, though, except maybe the panther.

Black dogs.

Yeah, that's true, they're the least likely to get adopted from a pound/shelter versus other colors since many people think that color reflects temperament. Black Dog Syndrome, I didn't think of that one.

I remember the thread sure, I just have nothing to associate it with you.

And traditionally dark and mysterious, or just within the fandom?

Can be outside of the fandom too.

Black dogs are notorious for being recognized by most as hellhounds or demons.

Pandas... They are so cut but under all that cute is an evil brooding force.
