5 animals most likely to survive a zombie apocalypse

Today we’re looking at five animals I believe will survive the zombie apocalypse. Some will not only survive, they’ll thrive during the apocalypse.


Insects (and other crawlers)

This has to be a no-brainer, insects will thrive during the apocalypse! Rotting corpses everywhere, death and decay to feast on at every corner! Not only will insects have less people to squash them, they’ll also be a threat to the remaining human population. Fancy getting a zombie-blood-virus covered fly on your food? Or for him to touch down on that little cut you didn’t notice? Yea you’re infected now, that’s how easy that goes.



I also mean dolphins and other swimming creatures that aren’t technically fish. No longer will fish be hunted to extinction. Sure the remaining people will probably still fish, but not as much as they do now. Zombies also can’t swim, or even if they could, fish would just swim better and faster.


Flying birds

I’m specifically mentioning flying birds, because most land bound birds are screwed. Sure maybe not as screwed as people, because these birds can usually fly a few feet to safety, or they’re really good runners. But it still remains, only birds who can easily take off and fly for longer periods of time will have an OK life during the apocalypse.



At first I thought about throwing all the climbing animals in one category, but not all animals will survive. See a bear will probably climb a tree and be surrounded until he comes down and dies. Same scenario for any other animal who can’t swing from tree to tree. So that basically leaves us with just monkeys.



This one might be a little odd, but let me explain. Rabbits fuck like rabbits, so without a lot of humans to hunt them down, they can reproduce like rabbits! Zombies might try to catch them, but they’re too fast, too small, too many and can go underground. Only to emerge at a location the zombie will never find. With most of it’s predators gone, or at least severely down-sized, rabbits will flourish. For the few people who are now no longer on top of the food chain, this will be a nice welcome. Better keep that old Benjamin pellet gun around and in firing condition!
