This is is one of the more aggressive species on our list. Don’t be fooled by their pleasant exterior.  If they hear just one piece of incorrect information about Disney in their general vicinity they will undoubtedly come to the “Rescue” with the correct info, whether asked to or not.  Their senses are particularly heightened once their enter their natural habitat such as Disney fan sites or any Disney Park.
