Mother's friend's chained GSD bit me under knee when we came over for the first time. I was told it was me with my fear who spooked the thing. And really, I remember how with every second of me hesitating to enter their damn yard it became more and more berserk until the woman holding the dog by the collar couldn't keep it in place anymore. Probably fucked up grammar, but whatever. Makes me wake up really early for jogging because fuck dogs, I still fear them.
When I was little, like maybe 6 or 7 years old, a bigass pittbull would regularly escape our neighbors yard to hop the fence into ours and play with our dogs
before you start thinking that, no, he didn't attack me. He was really friendly and playful, and what happened was way funnier.
one day a huge ass branch had fallen off the walnut tree in the yard, and he'd picked it up and was running around with it, managed to clothesline me with it.
Don't remember much after that, but apparently I had to be taken to the hospital for a concussion.
tarantula hawk when I was about 12.
I was running through the sagebrush chasing my cute cousin when I felt like something stabbed me in the hip. I slapped it and a black and red wasp fell out my shorts. Screamed like a little girl and ran to mommy. It swelled up like a softball and turned blue and green. Hurt like a motherfucker.
Other than that the usual yellowjackets and fire ants. One time I got stung by hundreds of tiny jellyfish in the Bahamas but that didn't hurt enough to get me out of the water. I've been bitten by triggerfish and stepped on urchins, but that's not bad.
When I was about 5 or so I was being a little shit and blowing on my cat and she reached out and clawed me right across the cheek. Luckily it missed my eye and healed with no scar. I totally deserved it.
Animal: aunt's cat scratched my hand when I was four. No big deal really.
Insect: When I was 11 years old, I ran my canoe into some brush at the end of a lake and out came dozens of black/deer/horse flies. That was the same day I found out I was allergic to their bites. My right arm swelled up like a balloon. Thankfully I don't get throat swelling when this I get bitten, just lots of localized swelling that freaks people out when I show them. Still, I wouldn't recommend getting dozens of fly bites at once.
I've had a few carpet pythons bite and constrict my hand...had a green tree python attached to my wrist for about 30 minutes before, via its teeth. a few parrot bites here and there. A sick panther chameleon once fractured its skull biting my hand...that was a sad day.
a bad parrot bite is always the worse, the cutting and crushing combined takes forever to heal. A few of the python bites can really damage connective tissue resulting in some pretty interesting swelling a few months ago I had a carpet bite the back of my hand and constrict my wrist, ended up with a 4 inch high dome of swelling on the back of my hand, I regret not taking pictures.
Parrot bites just take forever to heal, snake bites heal pretty quick by comparison.

pic related. not me but looked exactly the same. :(
I was stung by a tarantula wasp when I was about 16 or 17. I remember just dropping to the ground and laying there for what felt like forever.
Absolutely the most pain I've ever felt in my life, getting shot was nothing in comparison.
one of those got me while i was fishing on a sailingtrip in denmark.
caught dozens of them and i got careless over time.
they are the third most poisonous animal in Europe which is still not that poisonous or dangerous.
it hurt maybe twice as much as a bee or a hornet.
had to put my finger in hot water to denaturate the proteins of the poison.
pain was gone after 30 mins.
If you cool it down you will have to go to hospital though.
Fire aunt when I was about ten on my left hand-fucking felt like getting stabbed with a knife heated red hot by fire. Also felt like it lasted half an hour when in reality was something closer to five minutes.
Accidentally stuck a shovel in a ground bee nest and got stung about 8 times in various places when I was about 20.
Got stung in the ear once by a giant fucking black bee.
Got bit by rottweiler on the arm when I was a teen.
I've never had a very painful experience, mine have been weird more than anything.

I had been stung by a couple wasps before that but that sucked. I was actually sick from the venom, it made me drowsy. So fucking itchy for weeke
Holy shit, me too!

This happened to me at a tennis court (we weren't poor)
I would tapp the post and smack the wasps with my racket
I got unlucky and a wasp stung my arm
I've been kicked, bitten, stung, slapped, scratched by more animals than I can count. Embarrassingly the worst was probably a baby goat who bit me so hard my fingernail fell off. Took 6 months to grow in properly because the nail bed was damaged.
A big ass (unfixed) golden retriever I was dog sitting the past summer knocked me over onto hard dirt and gravel and tried to hump me. Had a huge bruise for weeks
I literally do not understand this. They realize I'm human and can't mate with them, right?
Some sort of venonmous jellyfish. ER said some species of box jellyfish but I'm not sure since I never saw it and the fact it was in NJ.
Holy fuck it was so bad I chewed up the side of my thumb and arm from biting down on something to try and muffle all my screaming profanities. Was not my best moment walking into the hospital like that and telling them to just cut it off. At first it was a joke but man.. That shit hurt.
I lived near key west and would always get weird welts that would burn,sting, and itch whenever I swam in the sea grass. Pretty sure it was some type of jellyfish but not sure. Any ideas? And wth you talking about urchins hurt like a bitch!
Kicked by a horse, in the fleshy inner part of my thigh. I felt the muscles tear under the horse shoe. Ended up with a side plate-sized bruise that lasted for about 3 months, and didn't fade from black/purple for 4 weeks of that.
Years ago I was out in my backyard tossing a ball for my dog. I stop paying attention for a few seconds and she plowed into my legs at full speed and took them right out from under me.
I dropped straight down onto a rock and fucked up my tailbone. Did you know you've got a crap-ton of nerves in there? I was miserable for at least a month, and I still can't sit in one position for two long without feeling nauseating pain when I finally do shift position...
Also I sat on a yellowjacket nest, but I'd still rather do that than take another fall on my tailbone.

Seriously, fuck Arizona
Mine was a tree python. It bit me on the arm just close enough to the wrist to get some of its teeth caught on my watch. This resulted in it trying to remove itself from the bite. Because it was stuck, it took a pretty decent amount of flesh and drawing a ton of blood because it's teeth were still stuck in me as well. 5 stitches.
