From arctangent: "White-tailed deer with newborn fawn. In the woods, where they belong, they're lovely creatures. When they invade your yard and garden and eat everything in sight, they're pests. They have become invasive in urban settings."

Runner Up with 62 points:

From ckvar: "This is Iggy the iguana. She's over 4 ft long, and likes to sun herself on this palm tree. We live in the Florida Keys (zone 11) but feel like we're in Jurassic Park! They're invasive and prolific here, eating plants, flowers, and digging into seawall structures. They do a lot of damage. Not cute!"
