Holy thread resurrection!!

I just heard that humans are so populous and so prolific and affect everything environmentally that we are now classified by leading scientists as "a force of nature.

So I was thinking, about 150,000 years ago the earth was populated by all kinds of species, many more then we have now. There were wooly mammoths, sabre tooth tigers and all sorts of remarkable animals and mammals. Interspersed in small pockets of five or six were two-legged naked apes, humans. I wonder if any animals or mammals ever looked at them and said one day they are going to be a real problem?

Talk about invasive species!!
