I have no idea! I didn't know there was an animal that didn't suffer from a disease. I'm curious as to the answer. I won't google it yet :-)

I would only know if I google'd it, but I've been good. I didn't know there were any that didn't get diseases. Probably a cockroach or something. Those horrible things are impossible to kill. I know - I used to live in Hollywood.

I bet you are right! I once saw a segment on a newsmagazine TV show, that said cockroaches would be still be here even after a nuclear war! They can lay dormant, or something like that.

Okay, is this a joke? Like the answer is "a two year old"? Or is it referring to the fact that the President referred to Mad Cow Disease as "no disease"? I give!

I'm guessing platypus. Don't know why, but that's what popped into my head.

Well, I'm between a shark and a cockroach. Figuratively, of course. Some mighty fine choices here! I heard something about sharks -- don't remember if it's they don't get sick or don't get cancer??? I don't think roaches get anything.

I haven't a clue! You said "animal", so it couldn't be a cockroach. Right? Ummmmm.........

Platypus is so off the wall I think I *want* that to be the answer :-)

It has to be cockroach.

Come on, give it up, GS!!

Since the Pet Du Jour is are cows, I'm guessing that my answer above is correct. That mad cow disease was referred to as "no disease". So, GS, am I as smart as I think I am?

Can't be a cockroach. It's not an animal. It's an insect. Have no idea. Could be an animal that is well and doesn't have a disease???

I have to go with the roach. It is the only animal that isn't affected from radiation so I'm going to guess that it's pretty resiliant (SP?). Give it up Rita!!! PLEASE?!

The Shark!!!

Okay -- had to check out the Shark, since SOMEONE...GS...WON'T tell us the answer.
so per the encyclopedia:

"A popular myth is that sharks are immune to disease and cancer, however, this is untrue and there are both diseases and parasites that affect sharks. The evidence that sharks are at least resistant to cancer and disease is mostly anecdotal and there have been few, if any, scientific or statistical studies that have shown sharks to have heightened immunity to disease."
GS, WE'VE BEEN GOOD FOR LONG ENOUGH -- COUGH IT UP -- THE ANSWER, NOT A HAIRBALL :).

My son is guessing a worm.

I think I will go woth your son and say worm also.

ok, deb-not sure how old the encyclopedia you are using is, but according to this animal factoid site, the SHARK is the only animal that does not suffer from disease.... (I never said parasites!) They can get sick (ie infections and whatnot) but as far as diseases such as cancer or blood diseases, they just don't get them.

I was watching something o couple days ago and they said they test the shark because they don't get sick. They do research on them. I have been watching a lot of discovery health lately. That is why I said the shark.

Well, I'm sticking with the shark. Know they use shark cartlidge (sp?) because sharks don't get cancer, it is used as a treatment. Haven't read (or googled), but think saw something on tv a while back about them being disease resistant and scientists are researching sharks immune systems.
Unless it is a trick question which Deb got. If it isn't, Deb, you ought to do a "tricky trivia" question.

OK, people, pay attention... I just said the answer! LOL

It's THE SHARK!!!

I protest. According to my sources, while Sharks "rarely" get diseases, there still are some who do get sick!

I'm thinking of the next "trivia question"! :)

Hmm.. perhaps I should have saved my reference, but I took it directly from a site. If I am wrong, then I was misinformed.... :)
