"Look out that's a Bundavark. No don't shoot at it! Sure you'll blow some big holes in it, but it won't do any good, it will just make it mad."

Bullets are a really ineffective way to attack Bundavarks and its not because the Bundavark are heavily armored. Why are bullets ineffective?

The best answers will have the creature that is the most unaffected by bullet holes with the smallest amount of hand waving.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • $\begingroup$ Since we don't know what a bundvark is or why we would shoot it or how it would retaliate after being shot, the answers to this question can only be someone's opinions. $\endgroup$ – Green Nov 2 '17 at 17:11

  • $\begingroup$ To my understanding the question is asking for answers to produce a creature that is as unaffected by bullets as is possible. While this would certainly be a fit, some constraints would likely improve reception of the question. $\endgroup$ – dot_Sp0T Nov 2 '17 at 17:14

Make the Bundvark a colony type creature. Think FireAnts, Man o' War, Killer Bees.

You shoot it and it causes damage, but it pissed off the rest of the swarm/smart colony.

Alternatively make the Bundvark have multiple redundant organs or extreme regeneration.

A bundvark is an ethereal creature so blowing holes in it does actually nothing at all except annoy it when it has to reconstitute itself.

A bundvark has ridiculous regenerative capabilities so any holes that are blown in it heal as quickly as they are made. But this has a metabolic cost and makes the bundvark HUNGRY... and boy do YOU look tasty!

Bundvarks are stupid and viscious, and highly irritable. Their regenerative powers are legendary. Inciting someone to shoot a Bundvark is now a class E felony across NonNivean Known Space, due to their aggrieved rampaging.

I am not a hunter, but as far as I know, all five African big games (elephant, rhino, buffalo and what not – here is the list) are like this. A different issue is that the idea of hunting rare animals might be offensive to the modern audience – right so!

Bundvarks are actually a swarm of nanite disassemblers. Bullets go right through and then as they travel on behind the creature, the few nanites which were actually hit by the bullet, consume it and thus start a new Bundvark swarm colony.

We had one Bundvark to deal with, but then Jerry shot it so now we have two.
