While other predators like lions tend to leave up to 30% of a kill, a Komodo dragon can consume up to 90% of any food they find. Here at ZSL London Zoo, we have an elite team of feathered zombie destroyers AKA vultures.
In fact, there are literally millions of rats in the UK, living in our homes, our sewer systems and even in the tube networks. A single female rat can get pregnant at 5 weeks old, give birth to up to 12 pups and then two days later be ready to breed again.
You can even think of it as a clean-up crew, made up of a whole host of decomposing bacteria, fungi, molds and insects. The urban bluebottle blowfly is so adept at dealing with the dead, that they’re actually used by forensic scientists.
If left alone, maggots will typically always find their way into a recently dead corpse, so if scientists need to determine the time of death for said body, they can look at how far along in their life-cycle the bluebottles are. The red-bellied piranha is often portrayed as a blood thirsty predator, which can kill a man in seconds… yet the truth isn’t quite as scary.
Piranhas are actually scavengers, who prefer feasting on dead morsels that float their way, as well as fish, insects, and even plants. All it would take would be one misstep into a hungry shoal of piranha and our dead friend would be devoured by their powerful jaws and razor-sharp triangle teeth.
A hungry mass of piranhas have been known to strip flesh from the bones of large animals in minutes. Careers at ZSL Our people are our greatest asset, and we realize our vision for a world where wildlife thrives through their ideas, skills and passion.

Hear from the team about our projects to protect the environments in the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIT). The absolute best pets to have for zombie apocalypse would be small herbivore creatures that you can carry or herbivores can be ridden on or less blood staining self-defense.
They can eat uncooked meat(I feel sorry for bears, except Pandas). A good option is to have your carnivore pets that can eat cook meat.
Can't recommend dogs due to difficulty of training, must be fed too much, probably cannot eat cooked meat diet constant which can get it infected. Make sure it's a cat that eats cooked meat.
Horses will just eat grass, but you have been sure it's not in a contaminated area. Their main self-defense is back kick to knock zombie flying backward.
They can carry babies or small important thing. Kangaroos are herbivores and in self-defense, can be trained to just kick the zombies out of the way instead of boxing.
Hear things far away with their big ears. Also, great locator for vegetation farmland, heard they are pests in Australia.
Rats are bigger than mouse and will kill them. Not recommended horn animals, lizards, snakes, birds or any small aquatic creature like turtles.
It can get bloody, and they can get infect right away if it is a bioweapon zombie apocalypse. Reptiles will eat bugs, but you aren't sure if they are infected or not.
As for birds, they can just simply fly away from you and you can't do a thing about it. They are also very difficult to carry, and you don't want them trapped in the house.
Just thought I would throw that out there Possibility Whales, or Dolphin if you have a boat(if you're a trainer). Besides maybe hunting fish if you live by the ocean or on an island, in which case you're probably not going to have to worry about zombies, or feeding the damn dolphin they can hunt for themselves.
I would probably carry around a bunch of sea monkeys in a gallon sized ziplock baggy. Eat a few and then just sit back and watch them monkey around for a while.
I also didn't include any animals that will bite for defense(except mouse unless they are trained that way). Any bloody conflict from zombie to animals can get it infected.
A reply to: The way the bears defensive attack can easily get it infected just by biting zombies. Unless somehow the bear can be trained to avoid raw meat and no bite for attacks.
Have you not seen many cases of whales saving human from drowning? A pet whale following you can get a pack to help you survive.
Maybe whales can lead us to an island with no zombies. Originally posted by: a reply to: The way the bears defensive attack can easily get it infected just by biting zombies.
Unless somehow the bear can be trained to avoid raw meat and no bite for attacks. The only zombie movie I have ever seen where it transferred to animals was the one about the underground facility.

Maybe trade a few sea monkeys for a bottle of whiskey here and there. I actually do not have many shells for either of them though, maybe I should get a few in case an angry partridge comes around.
Silent fliers, can see dead flesh miles away, nocturnal. I've had a few, and they were louder than my guard dogs, and yes....they do attack.

A reply to: And that's why I like you so much, even tough you have such far out opinions on certain things from my point of view. If I could, I got a bunch of super noble mares.
Now that she's old, when I fall asleep watching sci-fi horror movies, she climbs up my leg, all claws out, into my lap, rather than jumping into my lap. ... Where the climate is raw and the gun makes the law Neither wind nor rain care of bravery Twenty years have gone by, and I’ve ended my bond My comrades’ ghosts walk beside me Well a rebel I came and sure I’ll die the same On a cold winter’s night you will find me.
